Church of England’s condemnation of cinemas showing Hindu film ‘out-of-line’

Hindus term The Church of England’s condemning United Kingdom (UK) cinemas for showing a Hindu-themed short animation film as “out-of-line”.

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that accusing UK cinemas of “hypocrisy” and “on-the-hoof policy making” for exhibiting a Hindu-themed animation film was simply out-of-line for The Church of England which talks of “strengthening community life” and which “seeks to build up good relations with people of other faith traditions”.

Religious organizations should not be in the business of condemning businesses for what they decide to do with the products highlighting “other” religions, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, added.

Rajan Zed noted that despite our seriously different traditions, we as religions; should promote love, harmonious living, mutual loyalty; as we are headed in the same direction. And we should at least cooperate in common causes such as social development, peace, ecological responsibility, etc.

“Sanjay’s Super Team”, a recently released seven minute animation Pixar film nominated for Annie Awards, revolves around Hindu gods.
