Malaysian Hindu body demands ban on Tamil films
Advertisement
#1
Kuala Lumpur, Sep 23 (PTI) Malaysia Hindu Sangam has called on the country''s Censorship Board to ban Tamil movies and soaps which depict violence.

Sangam president RS Mohan Shan said that Tamil movies, which glorify crime, are a bad influence on the youth.

Mohan also felt that Tamil TV dramas, produced in Chennai and shown over local television stations, too were full of anti-social elements.

A majority of Malaysia''s ethnic Indian population of 27 million, are Tamils whose forefathers were brought here by the British almost 200 years ago to work in plantations.

Tamil movies are very popular among the Tamil youth while Hindi movies especially those starring Shah Rukh Khan are a favourite among the Malays.

Tamil movies and some Hindi films are released simultaneously in India and here.
