Often, the creators of a controversial movie allow religious groups a chance to preview the film. For example, the Catholic church screened The Passion of the Christ and The Da Vinci Code. Now, the Universal Society of Hinduism is requesting that Mike Myers' The Love Guru, which opens June 20, be shown to Hindu leaders and organizations before its release, reports Cinema Blend.
"Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion followers and a rich philosophical thought, and it should not be taken lightly," states Rajan Zed, president of the society.
Is this a reasonable request? Or is Rajan Zed being overly sensitive, as some critics have said?
