It’s offensive to atheists that religious mythology is considered a part of ‘general knowledge’. I see this in India on shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati – questions about the name of Dasarata’s third wife or Krishna’s 85th gopika. On the other hand, I see stuff like BBC Entertainment’s The Weakest Link and not a single religious question on it.
Also, it is always detailed Hindu mythology that we are ‘supposed’ to know like it’s a part of GK (beyond the rudimentary ‘what was Buddha’s name before he left in search of enlightenment’ types). I wonder what will happen if a Hindu contestant on KBC gets a question like: In the context of Islam, which group of people may be classified as Ahle-Hadees?
Ah, the subtle forms of discrimination!
