Comedy Central banned for 10 days in India by Ministry of Information and Broadcasting

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has banned the transmission of Comedy Cental channel channel for 10 days.

The issue was based on a performance in which a man showed suggestive gestures that “offends good taste or decency”, was “obscene and denigrates women”.

The channel responded to Ministry director’s order and apologized for “inadvertently airing the aforesaid episode due to unintentional genuine error, and undertook not to repeat it”.

Last July’s show was based on public pranks where a person pretended to engage in sexual activity outdoor. The Ministry held the visuals violated several programming code provisions and issued a second show-cause.

The channel submitted that it was addressed to a “niche audience, produced its programme mainly out of India and had an edit process but inadvertently, edits were missed to be carried out before its telecast.” It apologized, saying it was a “genuine operational mishap.”

People fount the Ministry’s decision overreacted and extreme.
