Appeal to devout Hindus

Recently ‘Star News’ was totally acquired by ‘Anand Bazar Patrika Group’ (ABP Group) and now they have renamed news channel as ‘ABP News’. ABP News have created a video titled ‘Namayana’ which contains denigration throughout the advertisement. The advt. makes mockery of Prabhu Shriram, Sita Mata and Shri Lakshman by portraying them as modern Shriram, Sita and Lakshman who are watching ABP News. It is shown that they get news of disappearance of Ravan from Lanka through ABP News, then after kicking Lakshman out of the house, Shriram whispers something in Sita’s ear. With the help of the trick told by Shriram, she gets rid of Ravan.

The description of You-Tube video reads ‘A funny take on Sita’s apaharan (abduction) scene from the Ramayana. The Ravana scene is a comedy video done with a spoof on present day celebrity characters.’

This is nothing but the grave insult of Prabhu Shriram, Sita Mata and Shri Lakshman. These Deities are revered by billions of Hindus worldwide. Hence, by insulting Hindu Deities ‘ABP News’  and hurt religious sentiments of billions of Hindus. Now it is duty of all devout Hindus worldwide to protest lawfully against anti-Hindu ABP News, so that they should immediately withdraw this advertisement from Internet and TV channels. Also it should render unconditional apology for hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. Also, Hindus should boycott ABP News completely, so that they should realise their mistake and should not repeat such mistake in the future. 

Devout Hindus can send their lawful protests to concerned authorities though Comments facility by clicking here.
