'Don't blame Bollywood for rapes'

Do explicit movie scenes and double-meaning songs and dialogues incite sexual violence? Many think so. But most directors in the Hindi film industry don't agree.

What a load of absolute codswhallop!!! By that token the rape figures in countrys where there are films aplenty must be through the roof! No. Those who have read Shakespeare will see that he presented such things too yet the women weren't treated any worse or better by it. How is it that there are those men who watch bollywood films and are able to separate fact from fiction. The factors of blame are there if you wish to see them.
1. Lack of respect for women.
2. Blinkered upbringing and for that we have the older men and women of society to blame for that.
3. Ineffective policing, law and order.
4. Lack of rape convictions leading to potential rapists and rapists believing that they are above the law.
Depravity as shown by those delinquents had nothing to do with Bollywood.

I do blame bollywood! The industry is bent on showing sex in ways that would excite their young audience in a unhealthy manner. If only they would be more sentimental about it. These item numbers should be eased out. Lets go back to the times when mega stars respected their bodies, not exploit them to make some money. On top of that, the messages of each movie is becoming unclear! The world needs to be cured. Its so deseased at the moment! Sorry if i sound absurd but I am sooo depressed about the latetest rape disaster. At the moment, I am blaming everything! So sad!

I don't think it is the item numbers or the skin show!!!!!

Rather it is the patriarchal society being portrayed in films and TV shows that is influening this!!!!

For example, in Punar Vivaah you had the aunt of first husband saying that the husband is allowed to go after another woman but the wife is supposed to wait for him!!!!!These kind of ideas which are pushed into a guy's mind makes them think they can get away with anything!!!!!
