Pahlaj Nihalani Believes Religious Sentiments Are Fragile, So Filmmakers Must Be Sensitive

Published on 21 June, 2016 at 4:05 pm By

CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani now says that filmmakers should be more sensitive because religious sentiments in India are fragile.

He was referring to the complaint penned by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee against the use of a kirpan-like dagger as an accessory on Jacqueline’s outfit in the song Sau Tarah.

He targeted the ‘new champions of freedom of expression’ and asked whether they have a solution for it.

“In India, religious sentiments are fragile and sensitive. They can easily get hurt and cause severe physical hurt to people at large. And people whose religious sentiments are affected are far more vigilant than we at the CBFC can ever be,” he told IANS.

Further, he suggested the presence of religious scholars and specialist when censoring films with sensitive religious content.



“But what to do when songs and dances violate cultures and religious codes?” he said.
