The controversy surrounding Bollywood’s upcoming movie ‘Pathaan’ doesnt seem to die down as Ayodhya seer Mahant Paramhans Das of Tapasvi Chhavni on Monday performed the symbolic 'tehraveen' ritual of actor Shah Rukh Khan.
He said that the 'tehraveen' would mark the end of 'jihad' which was being propagated by the actor through his films.
Earlier last week, the seer had burnt posters of Shah Rukh Khan and had warned that if he met him, he would burn the actor alive.
On Monday, the seer sat with an earthen pot, surrounded by a handful of supporters and crashed it on the ground after reciting some mantras.
"I appeal to people to set those theatres on fire where 'Pathan' will be screened. Bollywood and Hollywood constantly try to find ways to make fun of Sanatan Dharma and insult Hindu gods and goddesses. In the Pathan movie, Deepika Padukone wore a bikini which hurt the religious sentiments of saints and of the entire country. Shahrukh Khan constantly makes fun of Sanatan Dharma. What was the need to wear a saffron bikini and perform such steps in the song?" he asked.
Earlier, Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) national spokesperson Vinod Bansal had slammed Deepika's saffron coloured outfit.
Bansal said, "Calling saffron Besharam Rang in a film titled 'Pathaan' shows their mentality...This is shameful. Hindu society will not accept this film."
In the caption, he wrote, "Calling saffron shameless, showing a Hindu woman wearing a saffron dress and becoming a puppet of Islamic Jihadis. Is it a bold scene? There is a limit to anti-Hinduism too! Hindu society will no longer be able to tolerate these tukde tukde gang members who tarnish Bollywood by defaming it."
