Karwar: MP Anantkumar Hegde livid at 'anti-Hindu' ad involving Aamir Khan


Daijiworld Media Network - Karwar (SP)

Karwar, Oct 21: Uttara Kannada MP Anantkumar Hegde, has expressed anger at actor Aamir Khan, for having acted in an advertisement that he said, hurts the sentiments of the Hindus.

In an advertisement for CEAT company, Aamir had given the message that bursting of crackers to celebrate festivals is bad for the environment. Anantkumar wrote a letter on October 14 to Anant Vardhan Goenka, owner of CEAT, urging him to withdraw this advertisement.

"If bursting of crackers on the roads creates traffic problems, offering of namaz on the roads on special days too affects movement of people and vehicles. If crackers create noise pollution, the Azan conveyed through loudspeakers in the mornings also gives rise to noise pollution. Don't you feel these things too should be shown to the people?" he wanted to know.

Hegde has posted this letter in the social media. He decried Aamir Khan by questioning whether showing Hindu celebrations in poor light is the only job he does. "Why is there silence about the observations in other faiths? Loudspeakers which make big sound in the mornings, offering of namaz in the middle of the road and other such issues can also be handled by Aamir Khan so that many problems get addressed," he has written.

Hegde feels that advertisements of this kind are part of trivial conspiracies employed to crush the Hindu sentiments. There is no dearth of anti-Hindu actors in India, he has remarked.

Full text of the letter by MP Anantkumar Hegde to CEAT CEO and MD:

Dear Shri Goenka, Your company’s recent advertisement in which Amir Khan advising people not to fire crackers on the streets is giving a very good message. Your concern for public issues needs applause.

In this regard, I request you to address one more problem faced by people on roads, i. e., blocking roads in the name of Namaz on Fridays and other important festive days by Muslims. It is a very common scene in many Indian cities where Muslims block busy roads and perform Namaz. At that time, vehicles like ambulances and firefighters vehicles are also struck in traffic causing grave losses.

I also request you to highlight the issue of noise pollution in your ads. Every day, loud noise is emitted from mikes arranged on the top of mosques in our country when Azan is given. That sound is beyond the permissible limits. On Fridays, it is prolonged for some more time. It is causing great inconvenience to people suffering from different ailments and taking rest, people working in different establishments and teachers teaching in classrooms. Actually, this list of sufferers is very long and only a few are mentioned here.

As you are very keen and sensitive towards the problems faced by the general public and you also belong to the Hindu community, I am sure you can feel the discrimination done to the Hindus since centuries. Nowadays, a group of Anti-Hindu actors always hurt the Hindu sentiments whereas they never try to expose the wrong doings of their community.

Therefore, I kindly request you to take a cognizance of this particular incident where your company’s advertisement has created an unrest among the Hindus. I hope in future your organization will respect the Hindu sentiment and will not hurt it directly or indirectly by any means.

Thank you and Happy Deepavali!

    Amir Khan is just an actor. He will do any role if he is paid. Why go after him or the whole Muslim community for the depicting something he was paid to do so. Go after the company or the director of the ad. Why not blame your government for allowing to air such ads? You leaders don't want to work for the people who voted you to get publicity but use these cheap methods instead. Shame on you.

    For all those people (including Mr. Hegde) who are fretting over who is a hindu and who is a muslim in this country, I offer one simple mathematical and statistical puzzle. Almost everyone knows their 4 grandparents. But how many of you can name all 8 of your great-grandparents. Is there anyone who could even name 2 out of 16 great-great-grandparent? Forget commoners like us, even people from the most well-known families of India like Rahul Gandhi or Jyotiraditya Schindia will not be able to name all 16 from five generations back. How can anyone know for sure that they have 100% hindu / muslim / Christian / whatever other rubbish DNA in their blood?

    This Hero Khan is a great Thinker. Does Satyameva Jayate programme, advises people how to conduct themselves and all that. He himself changes wives every 15 years. Calls his iwn country intolerant. Feared for his and Kiran Raos life. Now dumps her, giving nonsensical reasons. Those who had left everything for him and come with him, he could not tolerate. Goes and meets Turkish Premier or his wife or somebody, who have rigid views on our Kashmir. What sort of a Hero is he? Nonsense fellow. What Anant Kumar has said your harp about... but this Hero nothing?? Call out such nonsense heros please. Enough is Enough.

    Smart Indians, please don't fall into these mind polluting things, you are smarter than this Khan or politician. The point is both things are wrong, in India it is happening because lack of liabilities & that's lack governments doing things right! Namaz over loudspeakers shouldn't be allowed, it certainly disturbs sleep so early in the morning 5AM- people should have the rights to sleep, sleep is an essential thing for healthy life. Regarding the fire crackers on the street can physically hurt anyone a ND also gun powder smoke inhaling is not good - however can be allowed for an hour or so in the parks or on the water just like in America one has to obtain prior permission from fire Dept.. Both above practices are illegal in America- calling the god on a loudspeaker- may be Amirkhan can make a movie on this!!!

    The only advt. containing Aamir (i found) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm4kOghHQ24 deals with bursting firecrackers&bombs on the roads in celebration of cricket matches./// The advt. is correct within its narrow scope. Several accidents are caused to motorists due to being unsuspectingly startled by a very loud firecracker. Where the advt. shows its selfish immoral attitude is to suggest bursting the FC within a bldg. compound./// Noise is an unwanted sound at an unwanted time in an unwanted place affecting a person who does not voluntarily wish to be exposed to it.///Noise kills people irrespective of which party or dogmatic ideology they subscribe to.///Auditory effects:Leq,24h exposure above 70 dB(A) will result in hearing impairment.//// Non-auditory effects (above 60dB): cardiovascular disease, psychophysiological, mental-health, cognitive impairment/speech communication, rest and sleep, on residential behaviour and annoyance (all involuntary reflex actions of the body),interference with intended activities.///There is a very good medical scientific reason for the Noise Pollution Rules permitting max. Leq of 55dB during daytime in a residential area.// People annoyed by noise may experience a variety of negative responses, such as anger, disappointment, dissatisfaction, withdrawal, helplessness, depression, anxiety, distraction, agitation or exhaustion Furthermore, stress-related psychosocial symptoms such as tiredness, stomach discomfort and stress have been found to be associated with noise exposure as well as noise annoyance.//// Ill effects on health of firecrackers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJhD9HA1mLI&list=PLeCCyry4xeCVQ-3VaXiM5_NEjAUU6-VV0&index=5 Ill effects on health of loudspeakers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbguwJyz0w0&list=PLeCCyry4xeCVQ-3VaXiM5_NEjAUU6-VV0&index=4
