A Hindu Leader Offends Hindus By Claiming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Is Anti-Hindu

Published on 17 December, 2015 at 12:18 pm By

Did you catch the trailer of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’? It was awesome!

This is not about the trailer. This is about a dialogue in the trailer that compares Apocalypse to Lord Krishna.

In a dialogue from the trailer, Oscar Issac, who plays Apocalypse, says: “I have been called many things over many lifetimes — Ra, Krishna, Yahweh.”

 

Krishna Apocalypse

Ra was the ancient Egyptian God and Yahweh was the ancient god of Judah. Both civilizations have now disappeared.

The dialogue has left one man from the Hindu community in US furious. He is Rajan Zed.

 

Zed, a noted Hindu activist and president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, criticised the reference to Krishna in a strongly worded statement.

“Lord Krishna was meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not for pushing movies for the mercantile greed of filmmakers.”

He added that though Hinduism allows for creative freedom and Hindus welcome Hollywood to make films along Hindu themes, “insensitive handling of faith traditions sometimes resulted in pillaging serious spiritual doctrines and revered symbols”.

 

But Hindus on Twitter are themselves criticising Zed for his comment, which they claim has nothing to do with Hinduism.

 

There is another dialogue in the trailer where the character played by Rose Byrne tells Lucas Till’s Havoc that the concept of the Biblical ‘Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ was taken from Apocalypse.

The Christian community has not made a fuss over it.

Watch the trailer and decide for yourself.
