There was a special treat in store for those who went to see Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) on the big screen: prior to the film, viewers were given an exclusive sneak preview of the much-awaited film Dostana. Produced under Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and directed by his long-time assistant and friend Tarun Mansukhani, the film stars the original Dhoom hunk John Abraham, the dashing Abhishek Bachchan and the beautiful Priyanka Chopra. The film takes its name from the Amitabh Bachchan classic Dostana (1980) which it also borrows a similar theme from.

Following the worldwide success of Kal Ho Na Ho and the varied response received from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Dostana is likely to raise some controversy with its gay centric storyline (John and Abhishek play two straight guys who pretend to be gay in an attempt to dupe Priyanka’s character).

Homosexuality and incest are similar;

1. both are based on sexual instincts
2. both have violated clearly established relationship boundaries; homosexuality/gender, incest/siblings
3. both are unnatural (if indeed either of them can be found in a gene, then they should be considered to be “defects” not a mere trait!)
4. both are forbidden by God himself (across various religions).

I am not saying they are identical or the same, but my point is that they share such similar characteristics that they are very comparable.

Why do we “discriminate” against incestuous couples? Do they cause us any direct harm? No they dont. Do they have the “right” to love and live with who they want? Yes they do. (just like homosexuals!!).

Some people argue that incest is worse due to the defects that can arise in children from incestuous relationships. But here’s a question to all those who answered NO:

Q: What if modern medicine finds a way to avoid these “malformations”, what then? Does it now become less of an evil? Does it become ok to commit incest if the male undergoes a vasectomy to avoid impregnating his sister? Of course not! So the medical argument no longer exists - so do you now accept that incest is ok? (I doubt your answer is yes!). So if you and I continue to condemn what incestuous” couples do, then why don’t we “leave them to it” (as you claim homosexuals should be “left to it”) instead of condemning their incest?

I’ll tell you why! - Because society tells you to condemn incest but it doesn’t tell you to condemn homosexuality. That’s the crux of the matter and we shouldn’t be flowing with whatever society dictates tells us to believe!

Muslims, Christians, Jews (and others) - should stick to the word of God, whereas society is flawed and will continue to change and pervert all sense of morality.
