Hindu organisation demands to ban MTV Splits-villa reality show

Mumbai: Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) demands to ban MTV Splits-villa reality show  as it erodes culture and morality in Indian Youths and also demands censorship for TV Shows as everything goes on air without proper checks and cuts. MTV Splits-villa, is an Indian television reality show that airs on MTV India. The reality show series is based on the American dating reality show Flavor of Love. The reality show revolves around young boys and girls who try to secure a place in Splits-villa which is a "Villa". It's a 'hunt for love' show where boys and girls compete in tasks to stay in the competition and mingle with the contestants to find love. In the end, one boy and one girl are crowned the winners of Splits-villa (they are a couple.) There are a lot of fights, jealousy, hatred, friendship, backstabbing and love when all these 16 wild contestants get together. There is also a King and Queen that have dumping powers. There are 3 million youth following the show. As per reports this show ran into many controversies like sexual exploitation & racial slur. The impact of such a reality show is so much that it erodes culture and morality in the youth which are the future responsible citizens of this country. One can realise the mindset of the participants from the views expressed by Scarlet Rose, Goa's upcoming model and current heartthrob on the popular MTV India on Facebook and as a opinion on ‘Goa Chronicle’ website.. Her concept of freedom is freedom to wear short skirts, strapy dress and bikinis. This mindset is western and has no place in out Indian Culture and society. One can also judge from the fact that pornography star Sunny Leone has launched MTV Splits-villa Season 7 this year. This is a social and a national problem which needs to be taken seriously and tackled. Our country is plagued with the problem of rape and sexual harassment of women and such programmes add fuel to fire.
