Karanvir Bohra Defends Himself Against Charges  Of Being Anti-Hindu



Last week when television and  film actor Karanvir Bohra  posted a meme  on a war scene  from the  Ramanand Sagar  serial Ramayan showing a junior artiste dancing in the background , and captioned it  “When  you don’t get paid enough for  your job” he savagely  trolled  for being disrespectful  to  the Hindu religion.

But Karanvir refuses to  apologize.

He says, “Please tell me  how  I  was being disrespectful  to  the  Hindu religion. I am a Hindu and proud to be one. This whole campaign to discredit me  is like  Chinese whispers and  God know, these days we are not inclined towards  anything Chinese. This  was a meme.  It started with some  trolls asking me how I could compare this war scene in Ramayan with  the Game  of Thrones. Agreed, this could offend some . But how does this make me disrespectful to my religion . You know my  form of  greeting anytime anywhere  is  Om namah shivay.”

Karanvir hits out at the intolerant  sections. “They should be banned  from the social media.  There is so much turmoil  all around us. But still such people enjoy making mountains  out of molehills. Aise log kabhi khush nahin ho sakte. I want to tell them, I am not going to apologize. The meme is about  a glitch in  the serial . It’s funny. People made memes on the Game Of Thrones when they spotted  bloopers . I did the same. What’s this  got to  do with religion? I want to tell  people who gunning for me to go take  a hike.”

Karanvir is appalled at the way  the electronic channels have projected his  point of  view.  “They are  saying things  like , ‘Karanvir  won’t apologize  for being disrespectful  to  Hindi religion.’ When did  I say that? All I am saying is  I won’t apologize because I haven’t been  disrespectful to our religion. If I  had been disrespectful I’d  get down on my knees and apologize  profusely. So  all those sensation-hungry channels, stop playing around with sensitive issues. Jahan  ghalti hai wahan  hai.  Jahan nahin hai wahan hain hai.”
