Talking Re: Goa govt opposes release of 'Da Vinci Code'

PANAJI: The Goa government will write to the film censor board "either to censor or stop the release" of the controversial movie "Da Vinci Code" in the state, Chief Minister Pratapsinh Rane said on Tuesday.

"The government has taken cognisance of a letter by an organisation named the Catholic Association of Goa, which feared this movie would hurt the sentiments of Christians," Rane told reporters after chairing a meeting here of the state cabinet.

"The association also attached a letter written by the Archbishop of Goa and Daman, Rev Fr Filip Nery Ferrao, to parishioners asking them to refrain from viewing this movie," Rane said.

He said it is not within the state cabinet's purview to ban the film from being screened in Goa.

"The issue figured in the cabinet meeting when the Chief Secretary placed the letter sent by the association. Cabinet members felt the movie would hurt sentiments of a large chunk of community," he said.

Rane, who also holds the home portfolio, ruled out protection to any theatres that planned to screen the film. "There is no question of protection as it is for theatre owners to decide," he said.

"Da Vinci Code", which is scheduled for release soon in India, has been opposed by Christian groups in several parts of the country.

Either you start silly polls or do copy paste. Sorry to harp on you but you seem to really be consistent at posting threads and replies. Just makes me wonder if I can work in the same company as yours. Free time to surf the web and salary too!
