Growing protests by Hindus against ‘Sita Sings the Blues’ show in New York

New Jersey, USA. Recently Forum for Hindu Awakening, a nonprofit Hindu organization in USA, has received complaints from several Hindus about a showing of an animation film ‘Sita Sings the Blues’. The film is going to be shown by a Rohan Narine next Thursday in Starlight Pavilion in New York.

Hindus have found almost each scene of the film to be extremely denigrating of their revered Deities like Rama and Sita, with whom Nina Paley has drawn irreverent parallels from her own heartbreak. The film claims to be based on the Hindus’ holy scripture ‘Ramayan’, when in reality, it is a parody on the sacred epic. Animator Nina Paley has in the past disregarded protests by over 8500 Hindus, showing her complete insensitivity to the Hindu sentiment and malicious intent in making this film. Hindus are now writing to Rohan Narine and Starlight Pavilion to cancel the showing.

Forum for Hindu Awakening has urged Rohan Narine and Starlight Pavilion to show sensitivity to the Hindu sentiment and cancel the showing. However, neither of them has responded. This has left Hindus no option but to intensify the protests. Hinduism supporters will be staging demonstrations outside the show and are calling for a boycott of Starlight Pavilion.

    The person is trying to get publicity at the cost of holy Sita who secrified her life. How could one do this? Shame on the act.

      Nina Paley was married to an Indian man and he leave her for a more beautiful Indian woman and Nina is singing the blues. Well, Nina you are no Sita. You cannot class yourself to mother Sita, you can’t even come close to the dust of her feet. So back off and get a life you low life scum of the earth. You are making money out of the dreadful movie. You can go to any lenght to degrade our religion and make a big profit. Shame on you. I dare you to make a movie about Allah and degrade him and you will see the outcome from the muslims worldwide.

    Shame on Nina Paley. Do you have guts to do some animation on Islamic faith ? You can do this to Hindu Faith because you know that we Hindus are tolerent and you consider this tolerence as our weakness ?

    Shame on you.
