Hindus ask Hollywood star Mike Myers for public apology on "The Love Guru" issue
Washington, Aug.5 (ANI): Hindus have asked Mike Myers, Hollywood actor and producer, for a public apology for lampooning Hinduism with his recent movie "The Love Guru".
Acclaimed Hindu leader Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that although the apology may not completely undo the damage done to the community, but it might help heal the wounds somewhat of apparently disturbed Hindu populace of the world, who number around one billion.
Zed, who is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that ksama (forgiveness) is one of the main virtues of Hindu ethics. If Myers offers genuine public apology, Hindus would not only absolve him but might also pray for his success in future movies, if asked.
Meanwhile, various other organizations, including Hindu Alliance of India, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, Shri Ramayan Pracharini Sabha, Sanatan Sanstha, India Heritage Panel, have also demanded public apology from Mike Myers.
Rajan Zed has launched the protest movement against "The Love Guru" since March, saying that it appeared to be lampooning Hinduism and Hindus and using Hindu terms frivolously.
Michael John Myers of Austin Powers fame, a British Canadian, who is the lead actor, co-writer and co-producer of "The Love Guru", plays Guru Pitka in this movie. (ANI)
