Recently Netflix released Anurag Basu’s LUDO during Diwali. If we go back a few years, Amir Khan’s PK movie had grossly denigrated Hindu Gods and Goddesses in the most filthy way. LUDO directed by Anurag Basu has decided to continue that trend. This mockery of Hindu Deities is an affront to Hindu religious beliefs.
Anurag Basu, a repeat offender when it comes to hurting Hindu sentiments, had earlier twisted Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s short story Kabuliwala, to show a Hindu girl offering namaz.
Hindu netizens took to Twitter to vent their hurt sentiments and started tweeting with hashtag #Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu. More than 23,000 tweets were tweeted using the said hashtag and it became one of the top national trends on Twitter in India. For few hours, it was on 4th spot in top 10 trends.
Here are some of the tweets from the trend :
#LudoOnNetflix | It has denigrated cow, "Prasad", Hindu deities & trivialized their highest reverence in Hinduism.
It needs to be opposed at all levels & lesson be taught to #Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu
Do you remember he'd come with another anti-Hindu film Kabuliwala in 2015? pic.twitter.com/MfaI7c6OZs

At the end of d day, Hindus end up watching these movies

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti urged I&B Ministry to expedite the process of implementation of adding all digital platforms under censor.
Hon. @MIB_India, while we appreciate your recent order to censor digital platforms including OTT platforms, we urge you to expedite the implementation of the order as insult of Hindu Dharma, Deities and India going on. #Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu
