Mumbai: An organisation named Purvanchal Vikas Pratishthan has filed a petition against the objectification of women in Bhojpuri entertainment industry and orchestra.
According to the petition, Bhojpuri entertainment industry and orchestras use women as an object. They have alleged that obscenity and vulgarity are growing every day.
The petition says that the orchestras are also organised in villages where not just professionals, even school children participate and this has cast an ugly impression on the culture and tradition.
The petitioner has sought support from people so that such orchestras are reviewed and organised only after getting prior permission from the police. The petition also requests the Uttar Pradesh and Bihar governments to come up with strict rules and guidelines to keep a tab on the organisers and Bhojpuri film industry in an effort to curb obscenity.
