Cricketer Monty Panesar says 'Boycott' Laal Singh Chaddha - f

"This movie is a total disgrace"

Laal Singh Chaddha, a remake of the popular 1994 film Forrest Gump, has been hit by boycott calls in India.

The hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha trended on Twitter, meant to urge the public to not watch the film following Aamir Khan’s comments on “India’s growing intolerance”.

Similar calls were raised when the trailer of the film was released in May 2022 as well.

Former England cricketer Monty Panesar also joined the bandwagon as he posted a tweet supporting calls for the film’s boycott.

Alongside a picture of the film’s poster, Monty Panesar wrote: “Forrest Gump fits in the US Army because the US was recruiting low IQ men to meet requirements for the Vietnam War.

 

“This movie is a total disgrace to India Armed Forces Indian Army and Sikhs!! Disrespectful. Disgraceful. #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha.’

In another tweet, Monty Panesar listed the number of honours given to Sikhs who served in the Indian army.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
