Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 13 Mar 15,Strong opinions
The articles about India debating the documentary ban was meaningful and thought provoking (‘Heptullah slams UPA govt for allowing to make BBC documentary’, Gulf News, March 8). The much discussed controversy of the documentary film, India’s Daughter, was produced by the British film producer Leslee Udwin on behalf of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and it was aired despite the Indian government’s ban in the recent dramatic developments in Indian politics. There have been a lot of mixed reactions to this film and many people are not in favour of airing it. However, the victim’s father encouraged this to be watched so that people know the mindset of a rapist who has given his views from inside his jail cell. If he is outside, what will happen?
Whatever be the reasons, people are saying that these types of incidents are happening all over the world. The accused comments on women tarnished the reputation of Indian women and the country.
