PK, a Threat to Me

I HATE updating myself.
And someone helping others think and change themselves for their betterment, and for the good of the society is the last thing I would support.
This is what I am, and I can prove it to you.
First, let me tell you more about me.
I basically know how the world works. So, its pretty easy to exploit people.
I love to watch movies which have "masala", with absolutely nil brain stimulation and which maintains my state. 
But once in a while I do enjoy the ones which are trying to change people for good. Which make people rethink and question themselves/their beliefs. Oh! Don't fall into the false notion that I watch them to change MY thoughts. I watch them so I can help people NOT change/ rethink.      

For instance, recently there was a big threat to all religions by a movie called "PK". The movie questioned the beliefs of ALL religions. Just QUESTIONED not CRITICIZED (yes, Hindu practices were portrayed more, but no religion was spared).
The protagonist who was an alien in the movie learnt that a Godman was what he called a "wrong number". He realised people were getting blindly fooled, betrayed, looted. Religion is a form to reach God. But he clearly stated that God doesn't need a body guard, there is no need to kill people to protect religion and God. And he asked the audience to choose to believe in God Himself but not the one made by people.
Audience were made to rethink. Rethink about their beliefs, practices, godmen.
I sensed a threat in all this. Because this meant, some people would CHANGE. Godmen would be questioned. People would open their minds, would stop getting fooled. And you know how I HATE change.
I had to stop this. So I watched the movie enough times to create strategies. I must have mentioned that I know how the world works.      
And so, I know how religion works too. So my task was pretty easy.
I belong to NO religion. By "no religion", I don't mean "not a believer". I do respect all religions. But I used this as a weapon to stop the movie from making changes to the weapons themselves.
I planted in the minds of the people and various religious associations the false belief that the movie is criticizing their respective religions. And that the movie must be banned. The theaters running the movie must be attacked. I was almost successful in the beginning. I could convince all religions that their practices were condemned.
But I don't know where I went wrong. The theaters are still running house full. People supporting the movie are more than those criticizing it. Maybe people are getting smart. I can't fool many unlike before. They are liking change. I might have to eventually die disappointed.
