India: offensive scene with Rosary to be removed from film before release

Catholic World News - June 21, 2013

Following a protest from a Christian activist organization, the producers of an Indian movie agreed to remove a blasphemous scene involving the Rosary from a movie.

“I tender an unconditional apology, as I am aware that the said picture has hurt your religious sentiments and that of the community and hereby withdraw the same,” said the actress following a meeting with the Christian Secular Forum.

The film’s producers also “tendered [a] separate written apology to the Catholic community and said that they hold the highest regard for all religions and would not include the offensive scenes in the movie,” said Joseph Dias of the Christian Secular Forum. “We are satisfied with it. We shall now write to the Censor Board to ensure that such scenes are deleted before the movie is released.”
