Ms Sunny Leone a.k.a Karenjit Kaur Vohra is a Canadian born American adult movie actress of Indian Sikh-origin has shifted base to India. Movie producers, directors and even companies are trying to feature her in every movie / commercial they make, simply because she has no inhibitions to shed her clothes. The Indian media has also ensured that Sunny Leone becomes a ‘household name’ by highlighting every act of this ‘adult movie star’.
As a result, today children and youngsters are spending a lot of time trying to learn about her which takes them to her website and videos filled with obscene content. More than 68% of the visitors to Sunny Leone’s website are from India (Please see image from alexa.com below). The filthy content will not only irreparably affect the young minds, it will also result in youngsters viewing women as a commodity or just an object of lust.
What is the harm ?
While the entire world is worried about the increasing atrocities on women, specially in developing nations like India, how prudent is it to keep inviting and making a huge deal of an adult film actress? Videos like these not only degrade women, but also result in implanting all the wrong ideas in minds of the youth. According to one study, 40% of youth in Goa who started watching normal obscenity, quickly got hooked to something as despicable as rape porn. So thinking that little obscenity is harmless, is a very dangerous thing.
So now with Sunny Leone becoming popular in India (statistics show that she has been the most searched person in India for 3 years straight), more and more youth are going to her website, watching her obscene movies and then getting hooked to this steady stream of wanton lust. Once this happens, it will not take long before they move to more violent forms of pornography and then even start looking for victims to act out their fantasies. Do you want your children to turn out like this?
We have had youngsters like Bhagat Singh and Khudiram Bose who sacrificed their youth on the altar of the freedom struggle. And today we have youth who worship people like Sunny Leone! Can we expect people who engage in the pursuit of lust to become useful citizens of the country ? But can we expect youth who are exposed to scantily clad images and videos of Sunny Leone to show any respect to women?
This body picture selling bussiness of Sunny leone is clearly an Offence under the Indian Laws. She has to face prosecution under various laws such as sections 292, 292 A, 293 of Indian Penal Code or Section 3 and 4 of Indecent Representation of Women Act and Section 66F of Information Technology Act 2000 as well.
Unfortunately the Government lacks the will power to do, as is evident from the ‘helplessness’ it expressed before the Supreme Court of India, while answering to a PIL asking for a ban on all pornographic websites. However, if we are concerned about the future of the country, then it is our Dharma to ensure that the Government takes appropriate steps to stop this glorification of lust.
What can you do to ensure that this glorification of obscenity stops ?
