Unprecedented Protests of Bengali Hindus against the Bangla Movie -"Challenge......nibi na shala".

Kolkata & Bagnan, Howrha, April 9th, 2009.

This time the Bengali Hindus throughout West Bengal are coming to road to register their protest against the Bengali Film "Challenge". In this action-drama-love-comedy cocktail 'Bangla Boi' an unnecessary disco extravaganza song runs for fun using filthy and derogatory words in the name of Lord Krishna. The 'Samkirtan Padas' are also used in this song in a very unusual manner of hitting the sentiments of all Gouriya Vaishnavite and Hindus in general. The song " Baja Gourang Kaho Gouranga Laha Gourangaer Nam Re" in a very seductive dance of the Hero of this film with ultra skirted Heroin, goes further "Krishna Korle Lila, Amra Korle Billa" and so on. This song has no relevance with the story and importance even portraying the situation.

The movie -Challenge- is an action movie based on a love story of Abir played by Dev and Pooja played by Subhashree. Subhashree portrays a girl with an extremely conservative and obsessive father. Abir is her classmate and She falls in love with him. Her father Mr. Agnidev Sen never tolerates anyone looking at her that way or even tries to be friend with his daughter. He terrifies, beats everybody to protect his daughter. Abir ‘challenges’ Mr. Agnidev Sen that he will marry Pooja with his permission and at his house and Abir’s father (Biswajit Chakraborty) encourages him to continue his fight on. Subhashree also loves her dad but at the same time dreams about someone capable enough to challenge her dad. Who can really fight her dad for her. Abir’s courage and determination eventually gets Abir and Pooja married. There is no connection of the Song hitting the sentiment of Hindus with the story or the situation of the Film.Starring by Dev, Subhashree Ganguly, Rajatava Datta, Labony Sarcar, Biswajit Chakraborty, Tulika Bose, Tamal Rai Chowdhury, Supriyo Datta and others and Directed by Raj Chakraborty and Produced by Shree Venkatesh Films hit the Bengali Film Market with a big budget. The shooting of the film was held at different locations at Dubai, Australia, New Zealand and Kolkata. The Music of the film is arranged by Jeet Ganguli. All the Hindu Film stars or connected people with this film did not even bother trying to demoralize an Ideal of Indian and Bengali Culture. Lord Shri Krishna and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu are mostly revered not only India or Bengal but throughout the World of Hindu Culture.

Though from Mayapur, Nabadwip the very 'Lilasthali of Mahaprabhu Sri Chaitanya', the protest against the vulgarity in the film depicting Lord Krishna and Sri Chaitanya was initiated in the last of March, now the protests and agitations are likely to be held in every corner and cinema hall showing this film.

In North Bengal, Matha Bhanga, Cooch Behar District, the Gouriya Vaishnav Samaj took out a silent march on 8th April, with protest banners and distributed leaflets. On behalf of Matha Bhanga Vaishnab Samaj, Sri Goutam Goswami retaliated to the press that this is a big jab to the Believers of Sanatana Dharma. We also sing the same Bhaja Gouranga in our Samkirtan , but the film maker did it a very objectionable way. The picturization of the song is very much nasty and obscene as an annoyed Goswami remarked promptly. The Organizers of Martha Bhang Vishnu Samar has chalked out protest rallies before the Cinema Halls showing this deliberated film against Hindu sentiments. They also gave a memorandum to the SDO (Sub Divisional Officer) to censor and cut off the scene of dance from the film for uninterrupted show. Otherwise the problem will be more serious.

In South Bengal, in front of a Cinema Hall at Bagnan, Howrah the Devotees of Mayapur Gouriya Ashram's Ramchandrapur Unit, obstructed the Matinee show showing the film - 'Challenge' and teared off the Posters and banners of the Film. The devotees shouted 'Jai-Dhwani' of Sanatana Dharma and did Samkirtan jubilantly. The passersby and the people in the ticket queue also joined the Samkirtan Group. On behalf of the Ramchandrapur Mayapur Gouriya Ashram, Sri Arindam Das Prabhu told the media that the agitation must not stop until the goal is reached. Further the Prabhu said that Sri Chaitnya was a Lion not a sheep. So the followers of Sri Chaitaya will surely defeat the culprits against Sanatana Hindu dharma.

As the trends of the agitation are going high pitch, the Administration and Police in West Bengal is contemplating it seriously. The Intelligence sources said that there will be more agitation in urban and town areas in West Bengal in coming weeks invariably.

The sentimentally injured Hindu people now expect a joint agitation and high protest by all the followers of Sri Krishna and Mahaprabhu Chaitanya including All Gaudiya Mathas, ISKCON, Ramakrishna Mission, Bharat Sevashram Sangha, Asam Bangiya Swarasat Math, All the Vaisnava Maths etc. against the impugned picturization of the song, " Bhaja Gouranga......."

Film protest
Calcutta, March 28: About 20 people, including monks, stopped the screening of the Bengali film Challenge in a Nabadwip cinema today, protesting the use of a remixed version of the kirtan Bhaja Gouranga.
Armed with traditional instruments and microphones, a group sang kirtans in front of Sri Guru cinema and shooed the audience away. “They felt the song had been used in an obscene manner,” said R.N. Kundu, the owner of theatre.

Krishnagar ,(WB) Apr 1 A local court today restrained the screening of a Bengali film for 16 days in Nabadwip, an important pilgrim town for Vaishnavites, in Nadia district for showing&aposobscene dance&aposwith a traditional Vaishnava Kirtan.

Nabadwip civil judge Tapas Mitra issued the injunction on showing the film" Challenge Nibi Na Shala"till April 16 and asked the petitioner and director and producer of the film to appear on April 17 for further hearing.

The judge acted on a petition filed by Nabadwip Nagarik Aadhikar Rakhsa Committee which alleged the movie had hurt the sentiments of the followers of the 16th century saint Sri Chaityana by employing dancing girls with skimpy dresses with devotional song popular mong the Bengalis" Bhaja Gauranga, Japa Gauranga and Laha Gauranger Naam Re".

Before spiritual initiation, Sri Chaitanya&aposs name was&aposGouranga&apos.

The film was released in Nabadwip, the birthplace of Sri Chaityana and once a famous seat of learning, on March 20 in one cinema hall.

The movie triggerred immediate protest among the residents and several monks have been holding rallies for the past few days demanding withdrawal of the film from the holy town.
