    Default AXN channel Banned till March 15


    AXN channel had been Banned by I & B in INDIA for 2 months i.e. till 15th March with Immediate effect..

    AXN banned for 'indecent' programme

    NEW DELHI: It's a first — according to many a dubious first. Outraged by a programme on AXN, 'World's Sexiest Commercials', the government on Wednesday got into the moral policing act and banned the channel until March 15.

    In the past, the government might have growled, even barked at 'poor taste' on TV, but it has never bitten off the channel.

    The I&B ministry, which was the government’s sword arm in decapitating AXN, said the programme was against ‘good taste or decency’ and was adversely affecting 'public morality'. Only a few days ago, the ministry had ordered two TV channels to apologise for a tasteless Gandhi video.

    AXN is primarily an action channel and was broadcasting the sexy ads programme late at night, after 11 pm. According to those who have watched it, these are creative ads with sexual imagery and overtones, although rarely exposing too much skin. In that sense, it was adult stuff because it required an adult sensibility to react to the programme.

    There are some other channels which show bikini-clad women in their late night programmes. Many other channels show movies that have sexual references or imagery. Which raises the question whether the government has been selective in its action against AXN.

    Interestingly, the proposed broadcast Bill recommendations allow adult programming after 11 pm. So, the axe on AXN would appear to be going against the spirit of the recommendations. I&B minister P R Dasmunsi, while announcing the ban, said the broadcast Bill would be brought to Parliament in the Budget session and would address issues of programme content.

    Said Dasmunsi: "It has been decided to prohibit transmission or re-transmission of the channel up to March 15, with immediate effect." Only once before has the government taken such drastic action — against a Russian semi-pornographic channel, but never against a po****r mainstream channel.

    Taken aback by the action against AXN, adman Prahlad Kakkad said: "Who are they (politicians) to preach us on morality? It is for the people to decide what they wish to watch or not to watch." Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt said the government was behaving like a "paranoid mother". He added, "Every government and I&B minister has tried to use his power to appear as a protector of public morality."

    morality and decency still stands as a thorn on many issues, but if left alone the world will become totally imoral and indecent. i feel even porn should be sensored.
    India had one of the best moral standards, but it looks like the world is changing, and so many are trying to change it round, while those on power actually know what it will ruin -
    "just an opinion"

    as i was reading this, the discussion on the local fm station is about what should be done to movie kiosks showing porn movies to children as young as 7-8 years, who pay to watch. and since they pay they are allowed to watch.
    world decay or human decay

    at work, everytime things like this is being talked of other countries, my Indian co-workers are ALWAYS quick to point out "there is no prostition/robberies/rape/etc/etc.... from our place. I SWEAR!" I just turn my back, roll my eyes and have that silly smirk on my face. yeah right.........

    this is the politics of the financially capable. and this does not start on a single root cause, it is multi-faceted at best. how to tackle this kind of problem? nobody knows.... really.

    Yes. could be many more channels...

    is not correct that Even sports channels such as Ten sports could also be banned because they too show WWF sometimes with ugly pictures?
    But i dont think they will do that.....

    and also i read somewhere that they are allowed to telecast after 11pm..

    WWE Is just a sports entertainment, Not an Fashion Show, or an sexy show.

    Yes.. you are right it is sports .. but what is shows is just not good and similar to fashion.

    and I think AXN is also a channel of Action and not Fashion...

    I think the Best way for channel producers is to make their channel as NEWS channel and they will be able to air all those things if not fully but to some extent they are allowed...
