Protests against ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ by Hindu Organizations; FIR lodged.
HE News Bureau | Bhubaneswar | 12 July 2013:: While Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s much-talked biopic about the life of former athlete and Olympian Milkha Singh, had a fair opening at the box office on Friday, 12 July 2013 (40-45 per cent collections at the multiplexes on the first day of its release), at least one city of Orissa in Bharat has protested vehemently the portraying of a song in it ‘Havan Kund, Maston Ka Jhund…. Havan karenge’, in a very denigrating manner towards Hindu faith and practice.
The release of the film in India has garnered a mixed reactions from film critics, but the film has already come under scanner of the right-wing Hindu organisations in Bhubaneswar.
The members of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Bharat Raksha Manch and Sanatan Sanstha today protested during the opening show of the film at Kesari Talkies in Bhubaneswar claiming that one particular song in the film, titled ‘ Havankund Maston ka Jhund’ shows the ancient Hindu practice of ‘havan’ in bad light.
The public who had come to watch the first show of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ at the famous Kesari talkies in Bhubaneswar were in for a surprise. The members of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Bharat Raksha Manch & Sanatan Sanstha protested during the opening show of the film. As it is said that the film has a song showing the ancient Hindu tradition of Havan (Yajnas) out of context. With the lyrics ‘Havankund Maston ka Jhund’ the song not only denigrated the Havan culture but also brings in a nasty feeling through its obscene actions by the lead actors.
Shri. Anil Dhir of Bharat Raksha Manch, Shri. Prakash Malondkar and Shri Vinayak Shanbagh of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti took the lead along with Shri. Umesh Khandelwal of Marwadi Yuva Manch, Shri. Subhendu Rath of Lokabhasha Prachar Samiti, Eminent advocate Ravi Patnaik. Other members of HJS, Bharat Raksha Manch & Sanatan Sanstha were actively present in the protest.
Earlier Shri. Anil Dhir lodged a FIR at the Kharavel Nagar police station. The police realizing the gravity of the protest immediately rushed its men to the Kesari Talkies.
A copy of the FIR was given to the Manager of Kesari Talkies, who said that he would immediately convey the feelings to the distributor and remove the song before night show.
Earlier, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS) said that the song must be removed before the film is allowed to be screened.
The organization also held a protest rally in Panaji on Sunday (7th July) and urged all theater owners not to screen the film till the song was removed from the film.
According to HJS Goa state convener Dt. Manoj Solanki, they have objection to the words ‘Havan Kund, Mastoka Jhund, Havan Karenge’ in one of the songs in the film.
Solanki was quoted as saying, “HJS demanded cancellation of the certificate issued to this film or keeping in abeyance its release till the controversial song is not removed from it.’’
While the film contains the hard struggle of the Flying Sikh, Milkha Singh and his strong sentiment for not attending any sports meet in Pakistan as his family members were mercilessly killed by the Pakistani fanaticsm the song in dispute has no relation with the life of the living legend or to serve any interest of the the flow of the film.
The song “Havan Kund, Mastoka Jhund” must be amputed from the body of the film as it will certainly generate a fury repercussion from the majority Hindu sentiment in India.

The above perpetrators for degenerating Arya-Hindu sentiments are not acceptable for Dharmik Arya-Hindu Samaj.
Unless and until the song ‘Havan Kund, Maston Ka Jhund’ is withdrawn from the film ‘Bhag Milkha Bhag’, all the Hindu Organisations and the Arya Samaj Organisations will start a Nation Wide Protest with a severe consequences.
The song is very much abusive to Hindu and Arya concept of Fire Sacrifice rituals. As Havan- Yajna is a most significant and highest dharmik work, one cannot dilute, degenerate or misinterpret it as a silly thing as described in the song with nasty postures. It builds a hatred against Hindu Rituals. Sanatan Vaidik Hidus must protest it.
Devout Hindus can send their lawful protests to concerned authorities through Comments Section.

Reason : The actors use explicitly suggestive moves while singing ‘Havan karenge’. This extremely outrageous use of word ‘Havan’, a term defining a sacred form of worship for Hindus, is downright derogatory and objectionable ! This song is nothing but a serious insult and denigration of ‘Havan-Yajna culture’ and Hindu Dharma.
