ஜிம் கேரிக்கு இந்துக்கள் கண்டனம் நடிகர் ஜிம் கேரி விநாயகரை அசிங்கமாக சித்தரித்த நடிகருக்குக் கண்டனம் ஹாலிவுட் hindus upset with jim carrey hollywood actor jim carrey jim carrey comment lord
Hindus are disturbed over the portrayal of Lord Ganesh as a sex act on NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL) and want apologies from all those responsible for it, including actor Jim Carrey and NBC. Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA), said that Lord Ganesh was highly revered in Hinduism and was meant to worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to be thrown around loosely in reimagined versions for dramatic effects in TV series for mercantile greed. Such absurd depiction of Lord Ganesh with no scriptural backing was hurtful to the devotees. In a skit on NBC's SNL (Jan 8) titled "The Wrath of Ganesh", Jim Carrey (as erotic shaman Lee Licious) and Kenan Thomson (as Grady Wilson) demonstrate a sexual technique, mocking elephant-headed Lord Ganesh and his trunk in the process. Such trivialization of Lord Ganesh was disturbing and offensive to the one billion Hindus world over, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said and requested NBC to immediately remove it from all its websites and other links, said Zed.
