Nevada, Dec 24 (IBNS) A US based Hindu group has welcomed reported pulling of the episode "My Big Fat Gypsy Knightmare" by Channel-4 of United Kingdom (UK) from the schedules, which was due to broadcast on December 17.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA), stressed that UK and Europe needed to urgently uplift the gypsies (Roma) who were facing apartheid conditions and stop their maltreatment instead of laughing at them for higher ratings and mercantile greed.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, and who frequently takes up European Roma causes, called dropping of this final episode six of British animated sitcom "Full English" a "step in the right direction".
Zed blamed Channel-4 few months back for acting highly irresponsibly in its smash hit documentary series "Big Fat Gypsy Weddings", which he said resulted in adding more misery to the lives of already maltreated European Gypsy community.
In case of "Big Fat Gypsy Weddings", Channel-4 appeared to have even violated its own Corporate Responsibility statement which clearly aimed at promoting "responsible behavior", Zed had noted.
