Dear Sagar Media Inc,
Girls as young as 2 years old are being raped in India. Let that sink in.
The number of rape and sexual assault cases are increasing by the day.
There are so many things around us that promote this rape culture. A movie. A song. Or a music video that shows women as sex objects.
In UP, Bihar and some parts of northern India orchestra dance programmes are held where women are made to dance on stage.
These dances are obscene and the women are surrounded by men – whistling, cheering, staring and throwing money at them.
Sagar Media Inc, sign this petition to make it stop.
This happens in most of the villages. It is shocking that now young school boys are watching these programmes. They see such programmes and think it is normal to eve-tease, molest and stalk women.
Imagine a young student showering money on a woman. What message does that convey?
Sign our petition asking the governments of UP and Bihar to regulate orchestra dance programmes and the Bhojpuri entertainment industry.
If we don’t act now, this sick trend of seeing women as sex objects will continue and crimes against women will keep rising up. #SwachhOrchestra
Thank you for taking action,
(Purvanchal Vikas Pratishthan)
