India: Catholics protest mockery of faith in Hindi film

September 26, 2012

Catholics in India are organizing protests against a film that mocks priests.

Scenes from Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal in which a priest dances with a garland of lottery tickets and a rosary mark a “new low” for Bollywood productions, argued Joseph Dias of the Catholic-Christian Secular Forum. With the Islamic world still aflame over a movie that ridicules Muslims, he questioned why producers would mock Christianity.

“If the clergy of any other religion would not be seen in such a manner, why is it expected that the Christian community keep quiet over such mockery and ridicule of its faith?” Dias asked.

    Since our parish is undertaking a big lottery ticket sale, the picture of the priest wearing the tickets made me chuckle. But then again, my conscience is still so poorly formed that I would probably have to struggle not to laugh at "The Life of Brian".
