Ban on films

First it was Punjab. Then it was Nagaland. Then it was Andhra. Now it is TN, Pondicherry and Meghalaya. All of them have banned the movie Da Vinci Code. I am not sure how many of people know what the bok or the movie contains. But all these bans must have come after requests from Christian Organisations. In AP there is no need for a request to come from any organisation, the CM is known as a devout Christian. Being a minority in India is a good thing. Their sensitivities are protected. Being a majority is not necessarily a good thing in India.

On the other hand in Gujarat, Aamir Khan's latest film "Fanaa" has been banned because the actor lent his support to the Narmada Bachao Aandolan. A very silly reason to ban a film.
