India (in fact the whole world) just can’t stop reacting to the much-argued ban on the documentary, ‘India’s Daughter’. While the Nirbhaya debate rages, #fame talent Shanaya Sardesai hit the streets in Mumbai to get a first-hand impression of what people felt and had to say.
The cross-section of people who shared their views ranged from the young to old, working men to elderly women to college students. “They need to tell the people what exactly is the reason for doing so (putting a ban on the documentary), said a young man. He then suggested, “The documentary should be shown in theatres so that people can see what mindset the rapist has.”
The common feeling across has been of “Don’t ban it. This is not a solution.”
Interestingly, people felt that the Government chose to ban the documentary “because they are helpless, do not want to take a stand and hence, the easiest way out.” Some also said that there is a fear of the world coming to know of the mentality of such criminals.
An elderly person remarked, “The ban itself makes one curious as to what is going on.”
A teen girl opined, “They know somewhere they are faltering. And if the documentary comes on television, then people will start agitating again.”
