Why is Master Bates sulking?

Every time a movie comes out in India, the Ban-chauves (a new term I coined for chauvinists always looking to ban something) come out in droves. The best ones are where the sulking party has no clue about the offending art in question. Remember the Slum-dog law-suit? Now the priests in Orissa have their panties in a ball over (what they assume to be a) "religious" slur in "Kaminey (2009)".

TOI Article

The glory for Lord Juggernaut from this jihaad? Maybe, a few lakh more "donations". And the look on the priest-faces when they discover it was actually about Lord Jack-on-nut all along? Priceless.

Only in India, man. Hyuk hyuk!!
