Few stupid bans by Modi Government

August 30, 2016 1:51am CST
Seriously, the current Indian government should not be called a BJP government at all... It should be called a BAN government. Here are the few bans that are stupid: 1. Movies: There has been a several ban on movies that do not suit "Indian Culture" which includes sexual content and bad words. What's funny is the sex book kamasutra was made in India. 2. AIB roast: The roast type of comedies are popular in the western culture. So a group of comedians calling themselves as AIB-All India Bakchod made a roast video on youtube on few of the Bollywood actors similar to that of comedy central roast. Well, it turned to be highly offensive by Indians and thus a ban on the video and the video was taken down immediately. FIR to all the organizers and the actors who were a part of it. 3. India's Daughter video ban: Yet another Youtube Video!!! This time a documentary by the BBC called "India's daughter" which showed the Nirbhaya rape case and the mediocre attitude of highly qualified Indians interview was put up which showed the level of illiteracy of literate Indians. However, thinking about it as it may sparks riots which was absolutely not the case, the video was removed. However, parliament members watched the video and still didnt lift up the ban. 4. Beef Ban: Let's not forget this ban. Since being a country with more than a billion hindus and cow being their sacred animal, the government decided to put a ban on slaughter and sale of meat across several states in India. Muslims and other minorities were furious with these decisions along with the dalits who had a livelihood in cattle business. Shockingly, it were the hindus who were selling the beef across many places in India. Thus, a ban put a bit economic burden on many people. However, the attitude of many Indians who supported the ban calling themselves as gaurakshaks(Cow protectors) started to an extant of beating and killing few people who didnt support the ban. India is loosing it's shine as being a secular country and is becoming a Hindu country. If this continues, there will be a sense of discomfort and there will be a great stress on unity of the country.

Not modi fan bbut here's my reply. 1. Movie bans are these days to increase popularity.. not about culture. If you know most of the movies purposefully banned to increase their reputation for ticket sales. .. udta punjab being one of them.. so if you think this is govt, then you're forgetting the basic economics going on between censors board and the movie directors who trade money for this. 2. AIB roast was crap. I mean really, insults and comedy are both different thing. and world already being negative due to shows like roadies, splitsvilla,.. adding roast type of attitude among comedians doens't pass good message. think aboout when we say comedy we remember charlie chaplin not insults of AIB roasts. 3. India's daughter movie was an attempt for feminism penetration.. not meant for solution to the problem. if it was any way remotely solution people would have perceieved it as such.. but feminist using such movies to defame indian males in generalization i'd say remake the movie showing the female criminals and alimony hungry females in india.. then see how much bigger ban it gets from WCD ministry. lol. 4. Beef ban? well that is not from modi government. that sort of stuff is going on since ages... jain community being very adamant about not allowing other people to eat meat in this nation.. they hide behind hindus and even attack muslims indirectly. if they don't use modi govt they are going to use congress govt. do you know in mumbai jain community doesn't allow meat eaters the place for rent and in some cases even jobs? your concerns are valid but they lack data and depth.

my concerns are valid and it has data... its how one interprets those.. there are certain movies that were completely banned. Aib roast may be crap but removing it shows that freedom of speech is curbed upon. if you would watch Indiaa's daughter you would have known what it was said. It didn't promote feminism but it said what was right and what many people thing. There were males who spoke for women incase if you have noticed. And the beef ban yeah going for ages, but it has spiked since modi has come into power...
