These movies and songs gain popularity in this way, and this music is corrupting the youth. Where are the ministers and the certifying committee that approves movies and music now?
A piece of news this morning... Her grandma interfered and was raped as a 16-year-old was being gang raped and killed by her cousins.
We continue to live in a society where the length of our clothing determines whether or not we were "raped." I'm confident that when you heard the news mentioned above and visualized this, you saw a girl wearing shorts and a granny wearing a suit or saree. You may have also envisioned both of them wearing shorts, which is virtually unimaginable because we women are still expected to dress for our age.
I want an answer while I yell. Are our granddaughters, moms, sisters, and daughters safe? No, is the answer.
And what do we do as responsible citizens? We encourage our children to "perform nice deeds" while also joining them in dancing to the songs that normalize RAPE. We do, indeed.
Rape is frequently normalized in our popular songs.
Last night, I had a loud passenger in the car with me. Aafat, a song from the newest movie Liger, was played.
Everyone is always talking about boycotting this or that, so please listen to the music before deciding. Instead of boycotting the positive improvements, let's boycott such tunes!
Let's make the hashtag #BoycottAafat go popular. Rape is normalized in this song. The lyrics initially energized us, and then Bollywood added sound effects from classic rape scenes to create the remix.
Bhagwan ki le Jane do — Chod do
What the hell is this crap? These disturbing sounds have been added as "sound mixing," and they are deftly concealed beneath the incredible beats that are quite pleasurable! These movies and songs gain popularity in this way, and this music is corrupting the youth. Where are the ministers and the certifying committee that approves movies and music now?
Think of this malignancy in our culture when you hear the words "simply support and find reasons behind the rape" or "provocative clothes or nature of women" as causes of rape. Ban these songs and concentrate on changing the law so such situations don't occur. If not, there might be many Daminis and Nirbhayas, not all of whom come to light, where people form chains and persist until they receive justice. We often read and see such news, but we quickly forget it. Many pass away in grimy, gloomy places.
Indeed, we do not need such songs; instead, we require stricter legislation with no exceptions for rapists. Please do it for the benefit of the country.
This is my plea to the lawmakers.
