Bombay HC grants interim relief to Care World TV from MIB order
MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court has granted interim stay until 24 November on the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting’s (MIB) seven-day ban on Care World TV for allegedly showing objectionable content.
While granting relief to the channel, Justice MS Karnik asked the government to file a reply by 23 November. The vacation bench of the high court also asked the petitioner to move a regular bench on 24 November for further hearing.
The MIB had on 2 November issued an order banning Care World TV for seven days for airing objectionable content.
The channel was pulled for airing indecent content in October 2015. According to the Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) of the MIB, the programme was based on sex-related problems ranging from intercourse paining, night fall, homosexuality, erectile dysfunction to male obsession for oral sex.
The IMC noted that “no yardsticks have been adhered to keep the presentation/discussion in the limit of decency. These dramatic presentations include extremely vulgar scenes which suggestively depict oral sex, masturbation, premature ejaculation”.
The content appeared highly obscene and found not suitable for unrestricted public exhibition irrespective of whether or not it was telecast at a time when a large number of children might be watching, the IMC added.
