Govt bans AXN channel on grounds of good taste

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India has banned satellite television channel AXN, owned by a unit of Sony, for two months for showing programmes such as the "World's Sexiest Advertisements", the government said on Wednesday.

In the past decade, there has been a sharp rise in the number of satellite channels airing in India and viewers and politicians have complained that some of the content is too risqu? for Indian sensibilities and culture.

"The government has prohibited the transmission and retransmission of the satellite channel AXN with immediate effect and up to March 15, 2007, throughout the country," Information and Broadcasting Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi told reporters.

Officials at Sony's offices in India were not immediately available for comment.

a very valid point. Anybody there concerned about violence in Indian movies, with shots being fired and blood spurting out all over the place. Is there anybody to worry about its impact on adults.

Am still getting it fine......

Guess some gov't babus took a break from watching all the music videos and saw something offensive that wasn't Indian in origin and decided to ban it.

surprising they see nothing wrong in Ekta Kapoors interpretation of the traditional indian family.. what with everything from rape to God alone knows what she portrays the families as... not that the original soaps like Bold and the Beautiful et al were any better.. but if they have been the staple diet of Indian junta for time un-recallable.. i'd be surprised they find the taste to be ok... (hello.. since when was incest and what not tolerable to the sensitive indian audience?)

anyways.. least said the better... i just dont have the energy nor space of mind to fathom their wisdom..

Channels in the South, esp Chennai are guilty of this. At an hour, when everyone should be asleep Wink switch on S** TV (of the family of Mr. D***nidhi M***N) and UPA Minister) and watch. It's like they have just put in an xxx.

Sometime ago at the Chennai Central rly stn, a bright guy in the control room put in an XXX CD on the CCTV circuit that flashes the ads and the train arrivals/dep info. This was at 7 p.m., peak time departures!

Cool......
If they wanna block these channels, then why allow them???
Come on government, this is the modern age, today even the kids know everything what their counterparts about a decade back weren't aware of. In a society, where protection is advertised openly, if some person sees a making out scene, what's wrong in that? Is is something from outside world, new to us??? or is it something we are ashamed of???
Sorry to say this but as per the menatlity of government people, I doubt how they have babies???
PS: By saying this I'm reflecting on their mentality, not making fun of them.

We are mature and we should let the young know the ways of the adults, by this we will be able to inculcate some sense of responsibility in them; instead they finding out from their friends and getting all sorts of wrong information. IF THEY SEE SUCH THINGS, THEY'LL ASK..... THIS WILL HELP IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE SUCH THINGS ARE UNIVERSAL TRUTH... No Bar Dance...
