THAILAND, Un attore che siede sull’enorme testa di una statua di Buddha, con i piedi che ricadono sopra gli occhi dell’effigie della divinità : è il poster del film statunitense ’Hollywood Buddha’ che ha scandalizzato i monaci tailandesi, fino a spingerli a chiedere al loro governo di intervenire nella vicenda.

L’immagine è stata considerata blasfema perché, per i buddisti, la testa è la parte più sacra del corpo e non può essere toccata da nessuno, mentre i piedi sono la parte meno sacra e non possono neppure essere indicati: Philippe Caland, autore, regista e protagonista del film " che narra la storia di un produttore di Hollywood impegnato a resistere mentre tutto sembra congiurare contro di lui " avrebbe perciò doppiamente offeso la religione buddista, sedendo sulla testa del Buddha e mettendogli i piedi vicino agli occhi. "Caland ha oltraggiato i buddisti di tutto il mondo" ha detto Chularat Bunyakorn, capo del Segretariato del Consiglio dei monaci buddisti di Bangkok, aggiungendo che "il ministero degli Esteri tailandese deve assumere iniziative immediate" contro la pellicola, che uscirà a Los Angeles il 24 settembre.

Oltre alla Thailandia, dove quasi il 95% della popolazione è buddista, proteste contro il film anche in Sri Lanka (70% di buddisti); ieri si è tenuta una dimostrazione contro Caland di diversi monaci e fedeli laici davanti all’ambasciata Usa nella capitale Colombo.[LM]

In a world, where disinformation is the main strategy, adopted to be able to act sometimes to the detriment of human rights by increasingly reducing freedom of expression , You can make a difference by helping us to keep disclosure alive. This project was born in June 1999 and has become a real mission, which we carry out with dedication and always independently "this is a fact: we have never made use of funds or contributions of any kind, we have always self-financed every single operation and dissemination project ". Give your hard-earned cash to sites or channels that change flags every time the wind blows , LSNN is proof that you don't change flags you were born for! We have seen the birth of realities that die after a few months at most after two years. Those who continue in the nurturing reality of which there is no history, in some way contribute in taking more and more freedom of expression from people who, like You , have decided and want to live in a more ethical world, in which existing is not a right to be conquered, L or it is because you already exist and were born with these rights! The ability to distinguish and decide intelligently is a fact, which allows us to continue . An important fact is the time that «LSNN takes» and it is remarkable! Countless hours in source research and control, development, security, public relations, is the foundation of our basic and day-to-day tasks. We do not schedule releases and publications, everything happens spontaneously and at all hours of the day or night, in the instant in which the single author or whoever writes or curates the contents makes them public. LSNN has made this popular project pure love, in the direction of the right of expression and always on the side of human rights. Thanks, contribute now click here this is the wallet to contribute
