2D. Campaigns:

FHA launched protest against denigrating play ‘Displaced Hindu Gods’ which was played at the Mixed Blood Theatre, Minneapolis from October 5th  to October 27, 2013. The play’s website and poster depicts a man and two women apparently playing roles of sacred and revered Hindu trinity Lord Brahma, Lord Kalki and Lord Shiv.

  • The act on Lord Bharma, is a One-Hijra(Transvestite) comedy routine.

  • The act on Lord Kalki, a girl-gang thriller

  • The act on Lord Shiv, post-colonial fantasy

This portrayal of the divine is contrary to the way Hindu Scriptures describe the Deity’s form or how the Deity is depicted in Hindu temples. In this play, our revered Deities are being used in a fictitious context, trivial manner and the most abominable fashion. The portrayal of Lord Brahma, Lord Kalki and Lord Shiv in this play is highly objectionable to the Hindu religious sentiments.

Appeal to protest this show was made by circulating news letter to devout Hindus and launching the online signature campaign and encouraging support was response was received to signature campaign.  In just five days close to 100 signatures were received from Hindu supporters.
