Hrithik Roshan irks Christians with ‘affair with Pope’ comment

Mumbai, March 30 (IANS) Hrithik Roshan’s comment on “affair with the Pope” has landed him in fresh trouble. A Christian group has slapped a legal notice on the actor for hurting religious sentiments.

The “Krrish” star is already in a legal tussle with Kangana Ranaut, in an indirect tweet to whom he had posted on social media: “There are more chances of me having had an affair with the Pope than any of the (I’m sure wonderful) women the media has been naming.”

This comment neither went down well with Kangana, nor has it been appreciated by members of the Indian Christian Voice, an organisation representing the larger interests of the Christian community, including Roman Catholics, in India.

Abraham Mathai, the group’s All India President has sent the notice to Hrithik.

Mathai’s advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, who also represents Kangana, told IANS: “The notice has been sent to Mr. Hrithik Roshan on behalf of my client Mr. Abraham Mathai. The said criminal notice has been sent under Section 295A of Indian Penal Code for his unwarranted and uncalled for comments (statements) made against the highly respected Pope Francis on Twitter on January 28, 2016.

“Mr. Hrithik Roshan has hurt the religious sentiments, feelings and beliefs of Christians (Roman Catholics) all over the world which includes my client as well. My client wants a written public apology from Mr. Hrithik Roshan within seven days,” he added.
