Vishwaroopam – Ban demanded for anti-Islam, anti-Quran plot

Chennai, Jan 24 (TruthDive): After Hey Ram, it is now Vishwaroopam for Kamal Hassan making news and controversies before the release.

Earlier Vishwaroopam was caught in a row about digital telecast before the release, inviting the ire of theatre owners. The experiments of Kamal Haasan with technology and story are now subject to political and religious audit.

In a period when the main political parties are debating about Hindu terrorism, Muslim terrorism, Saffron extremism etc, the plot of Vishwaroopam seems to be adding fuel to the fire.

Following unconfirmed reports of depiction of Islam in a bad taste, the Muslim organisations in Tamil Nadu demanded a preview to which Kamal Hassan conceded. A special show was arranged by Kamal Hassan with a hope to convince that his production of Vishwaroopam was not against Muslims. But his assumption went wrong.

The Muslim organisations perceive that the whole film is intended to insult the holy book of Quran and the religion Islam and no one could have taken such a film in the history of Indian cinema.

In a further twist to the religious angle, the Muslim leaders have quoted Periyar E.V.Ramasamy cautioning that forward-looking Brahmin is dangerous than vedic Brahmin. Since Kamal Hassan belongs to Brahmin community and shows himself as an anti-caste activist, it should be indigestible to him now.

The Muslim organisations are worried that Vishwaroopam shall damage the social fabric of Tamil Nadu, a state where Hindus and Muslims are living peacefully as brothers. They are now demanding a ban on the film citing that there will be law and order problem.

In September 2012, Muslim organisations in Chennai protested against the anti-Prophet Mohammed movie which turned violent resulting in landing of footwear and stones on US Consulate in Chennai apart from blocking of Mount Road, hitting traffic. Unprecedented gathering of Muslims at the heart of the city was a challenge to the police force in crowd management.

The present  development is a cause of worry not only to Kamal Hassan but also to the law enforcing authorities and the Government of Tamil Nadu. Something should be done to assuage the feelings of religious leaders to make  a favourable environment for the screening of the film for which advance bookings are on the way.

The ban now imposed for two weeks may give room for negotiation to delete some scenes and pave way for release.

    ,,,

  2. Kamal Haasan is an ATHEIST neither Hindu nor Muslim…. Get ur facts

  3. Please keep in mind that no one can think of taking a film against Hindu in India. Today Censor board has accepted which will never accept tomorrow when u release such a kind of film against Hindu.

  4. @Manoj, When muslims say Allahu akbar, it means Allah is the greatest. Even if all the people on earth turns against Allah, it will not decrease his power nor greatness. If all the people on earth surrenders to Allah and become muslims, it will not increase his power or his greatness. First understand this point.

    Islam is the only religion which says – Men and Women are equal. No other religious books teach that. I do not want to say bad about hinduism because my religion doesnt give me permission. And I obey the creator of all.

    Most of the blasts happend in India have done by hindus just google it. If anything happens first media says Muslim terrorist are suspected…but after interogation someone else name comes but nobody is willing to accept it.

    My point is I respect Kamal hasan, but he cannot create a movie against Islam. Then tomorrow someone will create movie against hinduism or christianity. do you accept it?

  5. First i need to correct brother manoj.
    1.Islam is derived from the arabic word ‘salam’ which means peace.
    2.It’s also derived from ‘muslim’ which means Submitting your will to god.
    3.so in fact islam means “Peace acquiredby submitting your will to God”
    4.Brother Syed showed already the media propaganda in trying to paint islam as a intolerent religion.
    5.Infact terrorism is not the Monopoly of any religion.
    6.There are CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM. HINDU, JEWS etc.. Terrorists
    7.Quran says “And if anyone kills any other human being, Its is as if he had killed the whole of human kind”
    8.there are black sheeps in any community. Islam is no exception. But the media takes out these black sheeps and portray them as exemplary Muslims.
    9.Thanks, May Allah Guide you to the light Of islam.
    10. “Ah! The truth has come; and falsehood is perished. Indeed Falsehood is ever bound to perish”

  6. @syed islam doesn’t mean peace it.means submission have u ever wondered problems occur where muslim.population exceeds 10% either islam is at fault.or.the whole world has a conspiracy against islam which of these is likely
    Nobody uses the term hindu terrorist or christian terrorists because they don’t go about rioting and bombing wheras islamic terrorists do so shouting allahu akbar can’t ur god protect himself that he needs his creation to riot in his name
    How long can muslims be in denial and paint themselves alone as victims and the rest of the world constantly at fault why aren’t muslim communities doing nothing to prevent the spread of islamic terrorism
    Ps : I’m not saying all muslims are terrorists but a good number is and also intolerant

  7. It has become like a formula to show muslims as terrorists for granted. Stop this for god sake now. Bad people are in every community, when naxals blows up the police station every day, nobody says hindu terrorists, when Americans bombarding afghanistan and kills many thousands, nobody says christian terrorists, when Israel occupies and kills thousands of palestines nobody says jewsish terrorist, Why only muslims under fire all the time??. Modi killed many thousands of muslims in gujarat, nobody says him hindu terrorist….list goes on and on.

    Media and Film industry is the main culprit. When you listen and see what media and film industry portrays..you will think that is 100% true without giving a second thought. And the media needs to grow TRPs. Nobody intersted to see news about hindu terrorists so they are minting money using the word ‘Islamic terrorism’ (actually when u translate it means – Peaceful Terrorism!!)

    • because in none other religion it is written u will get 100 virgins in heaven after death if u wage war against infidels and etc……. I don’t have time explaining why Islam is against Humanity … Almost all the Muslims will defend it with illogical points…. If you wanna know why people are Anti-Islamic just check Ali Sinna’s website faithforfreedom.Org…
      If Hindu’s are Extremists/terrorists how Jews and Zoroastrians found refugee in this countries?????

  8. peace first read and understand islam. u will get peace..

  9. Hindus are not towards killing anyone and not involved in Terrorism. What then you can say . In India, 99% are Hindus. Indigestible for what? killing the whole world?

  10. No one has any right to portray any community in bad light, it has become a trend for fame seeking and desperate actors directors to pick up scripts showing Muslims in bad light and as punching bags for showing raw ,crude emotions against them on the screen.

    This movie should be banned ,because of its menacing nature and anti national portrayal of Muslims of India.

  11. This itself shows how tolerant Islam is…. India needs a leader like Modi to fix this perineal problem… Every other community will keep their religion in the four corners of the house except muslims which is in fact not a religion but a political doctrine… Very sad to see this happening in India, a hindu majority democratic nation…
