Protest denigrating play ‘Displaced Hindu Gods’ at Mixed Blood Theatre, Minneapolis

Namaskar, dear supporter of Hinduism,

We have received complaints from several Hindus about a play ‘Displaced Hindu Gods’ to be showed at the Mixed Blood Theatre, Minneapolis from October 5th  to October 27th 2013. The play’s website and poster depicts a man and two women apparently playing roles of sacred and revered Hindu trinity Lord Brahma, Lord Kalki and Lord Shiv.

  1. The act on Lord Bharma, is a One-Hijra(Transvestite) comedy routine. 
  2. The act on Lord Kalki, a girl-gang thriller
  3. The act on Lord Shiv, post-colonial fantasy

This portrayal of the divine is contrary to the way Hindu Scriptures describe the Deity’s form or how the Deity is depicted in Hindu temples. In this play, our revered Deities are being used in a fictitious context, trivial manner and the most abominable fashion. The portrayal of Lord Brahma, Lord Kalki and Lord Shiv in this play is highly objectionable to the Hindu religious sentiments.

Below are the various contact details to register your peaceful protest against this blatant denigration of Lord Brahma, Lord Kalki and Lord Shiv to all the organizations involved in the showing of this play.

Re: A Trilogy of Plays by Aditi Brennan Kapil

I am writing to let you know my observations after reviewing the details of the plays being organized at your theatre . It is hurting religious sentiments of Hindu brethren. Hindu deities Bramhan, Vishnu and Shiva are being trivialized in these plays. These plays shows ignorance of Aditi Brennan Kapil about Hinduism.

Hindus should have been consulted before this play was even conceived to understand the Hindu deities so such plays do not trivialize them. Bramhan, Vishnu and Shiva are highly revered deities in Hinduism and were meant to be worshipped in temples and home shrines and not to be trivialized on theaters. Such depiction and trivialization is hurt the religious feelings of more than billion Hindus around the world.

My request is to stop this denigration and stop screening of the plays in your theatre.

With Kind Regards,
Balvinder Sabherwal
