Protest: ‘Starlight Pavilion’ to show ‘Sita Sings the Blues’ which ridicules Ramayana

July 17, 2011
Ashadh Krushna Dwitiya, Kaliyug Varsha 5113

Appeal to devout Hindus

Starlight Pavilion, New York. USA is going to show ‘Sita Sings the Blues’ movie on 21 July 2011. The movie ridicules Goddess Sita and Ramayana in very much bad manner. The movie is created by Nina Paley, American Cartoonist, who states that this story is based on the Ramayan of Rushi Valmiki. But what she has done is take the ingredients of the epic story and give it a meaning which is completely opposite to the spiritual truths that the scripture conveys. It is duty of all Hindus to protest lawfully against ‘Starlight Pavilion’ so that it should not show ‘Sita Sings the Blues’.

Subject :  Request to cancel Starlight Pavilion showing denigrating ‘Sita sings the blues

Hindu Jajanagruti Samiti is an NGO working for the cause of Hindu and Hindu Dharma all over world. For details please refer our website www.HinduJagruti.org
 
We at the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti have received complaints from several Hindus from all over the world about the showing of a film ‘Sita sings the blues’ at the Starlight Pavilion in New York next Thursday (21st July). We would like to bring to your attention that ‘Sita sings the blues’ denigrates Hindus’ revered scripture Ramayan, and Deities Rama and Sita. You can refer the online signature drive going on our website at the link. http://www.hindujagruti.org/denigrations/sitasingstheblues,You will observe that more than 8500 Proud Hindus had lodged their protest and complaints against the movie which had resulted in stopping the distribution of CD’s.

People from different faiths live in America and it is important to maintain sensitivity towards each other’s religion, to live harmoniously. Denigration of religious symbols and icons causes disharmony, as it hurts the sentiments of the community being targeted. We hope you will not dare to denigrate Muslim or Christian faiths. However you are repeatedly hurting religious sentiments of Hindus as we are protesting peacefully.

In view of above we request you to cancel the show . Please acknowledge this protest letter and inform the action taken failing which we will be forced to intensify protest campaign and to take appropriate legal action against you.
Sincerely,
Shivaji Vatkar
