In Covid Times, Please Stop Promoting Superstition, AndhVishwas Or Blind Faith In The Garb Of Entertainment, Poonam Karekar-Govekar Appeals To Colors and Salman Khan
“Chamatkar ko namaskar karungi. Why doesn’t Radhe Maa use her divine trishul to destroy the coronavirus from the face of the earth, or at least from Mumbai – the city where she made it big. Please stop promoting superstition and such elements who thrive on superstition and andhvishwas or blind faith, says Goan actress Poonam Karekar Govekar, who is livid after hearing the news that Radhe Maa has refused to leave her trishul outside the Bigg Boss house because she believes it has divine powers and if she leaves if outside she will not have any divine power left.
Prominent news portals are running a news item claiming that Radhe Maa is the highest paid contestant on Bigg Boss. What are you promoting in the bargain, asks Poonam, saying there are so many young, talented entertainers in India. Please stop taking us back to the stone age. As such the Corona virus has already wrecked enough havoc on this earth, she laments.
“When thousands are dying in India because of the deadly coronavirus, which has cost millions their jobs the world over and many people are broke or even starving, Colors should not in my opinion promote such flashily dressed make-believe god men and god women who thrive and enrich themselves, buying fancy foreign cars and expensive real estate, living and thriving on the blind faith or andhvishwas of their followers. This is the time for global awakening, for us as humans to accept the fragility of life and the very fact that a microscopic virus has turned the world upside down and brought it almost to a standstill. My humble appeal to Colors and Endemol is to promote a new way of life, instead of promoting blind faith, which will only benefit a few, but take thousands back to the dark ages,” Poonam Karekar-Govekar says in her message to Colors and the Bigg Boss host Salman Khan.
