Should Da Vinci Code be banned?

May 17, 2006 13:11 IST
Director Ron Howard's Da Vinci Code has raked up a storm, thanks to its controversial content.

Adapted from Dan Brown's best-selling novel, the film challenges age-old views about Jesus Christ's life.

Catholic priests and laypeople, along with Muslim clerics, have demanded that the film be banned in India.

Starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou, the movie is slated to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, and release worldwide on May 19.

Do you think Da Vinci Code should be banned? Or should it be released without any cuts in India, like the rest of the world?

Have your say!
