India may ban 'Da Vinci Code' amid protests

NEW DELHI (AFP) - The Indian government will decide late Thursday whether to permit screening of the "The Da Vinci Code" in theatres amid mounting protests by Christian groups, officials said. Protesters have taken legal action against national censor board officials for clearing the movie which is based on Dan Brown's novel for opening on Friday without cuts. The Mumbai-based Catholic Secular Forum Christian has filed a petition to the court also seeking a ban on releasing in India the movie which suggests Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and started a family.
