… dispelling the misconceptions of the movie and gaining vedic clarity
You all loved PK movie, right? Indeed we loved the movie too. But there is caveat.. Read on..
PK was released in Dec 2014 and went on to become the highest grossing Indian film of all time. Using an alien named PK and a journalist as its central characters, the movie exposes the shenanigans of godmen and the gullibility of their followers. Indeed it is true that there are so many self-made godmen in this world trying to leverage the sentiments of innocent in today’s so called “spiritual marketplace”. But, however, in its negative stereotyping of religion, it mixes superstitions with meaningful spiritual practices and reduces God to an irrelevant cipher. While PK attracted positive reviews from critics, it also triggered violent protests from the Hindu right wing, which charged it with hurting Hindu sentiments and called for a ban on it.
PK OK? webinar responds to the issues raised in PK by drawing on logic, humor, scripture, science and common sense.
Some of the questions we will visit in this discussion are :
Can we reject as wrong numbers the rituals that don’t make sense?
Do people who are afraid go to temples?
Are there two gods: the god who created man and the god whom man created?
How can worshiping a cow get one a job?
Does a stone smeared with colored powder become God?
Why are we not born with our religion stamped on us?
Why does God not respond to our prayers?
Is PK an anti-Hindu movie? Are violent protests against it justified?
Does religion cause violence?
