#BoycottPK trends on twitter

Aamir-Khan-Anushka-Sharma-PK-Movie-New-Poster

Raving appreciation has been pouring in for Aamir Khan ever since movie PK’s release last weekend. But equivalent to the appreciation over the social message spread, negative criticism over the religious representation in the movie has been widely voiced on social media.

With a hashtag #BoycottPK, a sizable number of twitterati has been demanding a boycott of the movie for its depiction of religion, especially Hinduism.

The reasons for the boycott have been wide and varied.

The movie essentially deals amongst other issues with extravenous customs associated with each religion which according to the film is ‘phaste’(waste). For instance, from poojas in temples to baptism in churches and rituals in dargahs, the question asked was simple – if God could speak, would he rather you pour litres of milk on him, or instead give that same food to millions of starving children across the country.
However, even though all religions have been targeted in the movie, Hinduism has been given more video coverage.

While Aamir attempts to reach out to God in the movie, he creates a ruckus in almost every religious institution. To depict this, he is seen creating a scene at a temple and a church, however, the scene at a mosque shows him being shooed away as he tries entering with wine bottles in his hand.

Even as Love Jihad ( a term associated with the forced conversion of Hindu girls into Islam after falling in love with Muslim boys) remains a touchy subject in the country, Rajkumar Hirani, the movie’s director, depicts a Hindu girl falling in love with a Muslim boy from Pakistan.
