Patna: Exasperated with the increasing obscenity in songs and open display of girls as dancers in marriage processions and joyful firings at various functions, former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and BJP Rajya Sabha MP Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday demanded that the government ban obscene songs, exhibition of girls as well as joyful firing in marriages.
Mr Modi said here today that various dialects were popular in different regions of Bihar, however it was unfortunate that the most widely spoken Bhojpuri and Magdhi were being misused for production of disgraceful and obscene songs that are humiliating to women and against their dignity.
Mr Modi said that the government should strictly ban such obscene songs and videos the way the state government had completely banned use of liquor to protect the dignity of women and to save them from domestic violence.
Describing marriages and marriage procession as part of our culture, Mr Modi said that nowadays the obscene exhibition of girls in cage like vehicles in marriage procession, dance after consuming liquor and joyful firing by the barat party after reaching the venue was not part of our traditions.
The BJP leader said that the administration should ensure that such things do not take place during marriages. An effective ban should be imposed to completely check such activities which are giving a bad reputation to Bihar, he added. (UNI)
