Govt Restricts Condom Ads & People Have A Lot Of Opinions

Just because 2017 wasn’t already full of WTF news, the government has decided to drop another one just in time. India, the second most populated country and the third largest hub of AIDS patients, has decided to restrict people’s exposure to condom commercials because they are, “indecent” and “inappropriate for viewing by children.”

Smriti Irani lead information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry has strictly asked TV channels to air condom commercials only between 10pm to 6am to avoid exposure of any kind of indecent material to children which can create “unhealthy practices.”

“It has been brought to the notice of the ministry of information and broadcasting that some channels carry advertisements of condoms repeatedly which are alleged to be indecent especially for children…. In view of the above, all TV channels are hereby advised not to telecast the advertisements of condoms which are for a particular age group and could be indecent/ inappropriate for viewing by children.”

Unsurprisingly, the news of ban on condom commercials didn’t go down too well on social media.

A lot of people are bringing up the unnecessary vulgarity in other TV commercials.
