Vrindavan, 2018.01.31 (VT) Sapna Chaudhary’s performance in Vrindavan on 23rd February may be cancelled due to the protests of residents who feel that her dance style is offensive to Hindu sentiments.
On Tuesday, members of the Rastriya Jan Udyog Vyapar Sanghathan (RJUVS) presented a petition to the District Magistrate requesting that action be taken to stop the program. The performance is scheduled to take place on Chatikara road on 23rd February, however, organizers may think twice after hearing the threats of protests and road blockages if the performance takes place.
The singer-dancer from Haryana was part of the TV series Big Boss 11 and is now being asked to act in films such as the Bhojpuri film, Bairi Kangana 2. Her career is skyrocketing, but the residents of Braj do not want her provocative dances to be performed in Vrindavan.
Engineer Kalpana Garg from the RJUVS said that such dances should not be performed in a religious town. She warned that, if the dance goes ahead, there will be further protests.
Mahant Gangadas of Tapovan Ashram said that Sapna Chaudhary‘s dance style is contrary Braj’s culture and traditions. The Mahant said that such a dance will not be allowed on the holy land of Vrindavan.
In a meeting on Monday at Vrinda Dham, Hindu Raksha Sena’s National President, Mahamandaleshwar Prabodhanand Giri, said that, these days, Hindus are forgetting the essence of Hinduism. The organization is demanding increased protection of Hindu religion from central and state governments and has added its voice to the calls to ban improper dances in the Dham.
