WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF?!
Like many others, I got to know about the documentary ‘INDIA’S DAUGHTER’ once it became a controversial, i.e when a video of one of the rapist was posted online. Personally, I felt that this documentary might at last, provide us with some much-needed answers and shed some light on why do they do something so cruel because there is no one better to answer these questions than the culprits themselves. So you can imagine my shock when I heard that this movie is banned in India because it has an interview with the culprit who passed on some derogatory comments.
while the same derogatory comments are made by politicians in the parliament there is no harm but when the culprit repeats the same exact words the movie is being banned. Is it not essential to know how the thought process of the criminals works so as to put a stop to their heinous act and to acknowledge the reason behind it.
A foreigner has spent 2 years of her life struggling in our country and made a movie to be the voice of all the women around the world, instead of giving her documentary full support our government thought it would reduce the country’s tourism income because they feel that the movie is degrading India. It is also apparently an offense to the dignity of women; now how a movie which is made to help women across the world an offense to them, is a million dollar question.
