I received some criticism after revealing I watched PK. Here are a few reactions, condensed for you:
Anger: Really? How could you?
Betrayal (sense of): Somebody made fun of our religion, our customs, and you paid money to watch it, and laughed along with it.
Comparison: Would Christians and Muslims accept this kind of abomination?
Disgust: They actually had a scene with a man painted in blue running about dressed as Shiva. How dare they?
Exasperation: We let everyone live in our country, and now there is no place for us.
Hostility: If movies like PK are going to be made, then we do not have enough Ghar Wapsi events happening.
Indignation: We Hindus do not want to fight back when someone makes fun of us. How much longer are we going to take this lying down?
Incredulity: We allowed a Muslim to get away with speaking dialogues about our religion.
I do not have much to say to them. But when asked “What are you doing to protect and preserve Hinduism?”; I like to tell them, “I am leaving it alone”.
