Revoke ban on BBC documentary: Editors Guild of India

New Delhi, March 6 ┬áThe Editors Guild of India on Friday appealed to the government to revoke the ban on airing of the BBC documentary on the December 16, 2012 gang-rape, terming the move “wholly unwarranted”.

In a statement, the Guild said the documentary, ‘Storyville: India’s daughter’, portrayed the courage, sensibility and liberal outlook of a family traumatised by the brutality inflicted on their daughter, the continuing “shameful attitudes” towards women among the interviewed rapist as well as the educated, including the defence lawyers.

It said their rationale that the ban was in the interest of justice and public order as the film “created a situation of tension and fear amongst women”.
