PPST Writing: Censorship of songs lyrics, television shows and offensive speech

[color=green]“Censorship of song lyrics, television shows and offensive speech is necessary in order to protect the rights of all members of society.”

Censorship is defined as ’ Policy of restricting the public expression of ideas, opinions, conceptions and impulses which are believed to have the capacity to undermine the governing authority or the social and moral order which authority considers itself bound to protect.’ Controvorsial as it has remain, my thoughts are in favour of the given statement that censorship is necessary. I explicate my ideas in the following paragraphs.

A number of incidents, one after another, containing violence of children under age of fifteen were recorded. All these children were influenced by a particular scene in the movie or cartoon and thereby hurt themselves or their parents or classmates in trying to imitate those actions, which so deeply influenced their minds. This is a very serious issue to be considered. Secondly, increase of violence and sexual harrasment has been noticed among the children who watch such television programs regularly.

There is no point of negation when the future of society is at risk. Parents are not the only responsible party in this situation. Government and media, themselves have to take the responsibility. In today’s economy, it is not easy for parents to provide all fascilities for their children, and therefore they both have to work for the upbringing of their children. Although, neglecting children for a long time can also be dangerous from all aspects. But, even if parents supervised children, they cannot strictly restricate their children from watching such cartoons or films that contain violence. As children hear stories from their classmates and friends, their interest develops and they also want to watch those movies or cartoons. Hence, to avoid such a social impact, it is necessary for the respective controlling associations to censor such scenes and make rules to avoid any kind of social or moral violence.

Besides, it is important to understand that adult information, for young minds is hazardous. It causes severe mental and physical health problems too. Nature has made a process of development, interrupting this process in any manner, can result in dilemma.

Also, even for adults, the program structure, language and content needs serious modifications. Today, in the 21st century, the circumstances are different and the stakes are higher. Due to incredibly high amount of competition among journalists today, the information is usually exaggerated in order to capture a viewing audience. The consequence is a bad impact on the minds of viewers that causes increase social violence in the overall society.

Another aspect of this scenario is that, such scenes when seen regularly by the people, they become thick-skinned. This is not a good sign for human beings as they are meant to be sensative.

Analyzing all these effects of the media, which in the name of ‘Freedom of speech’, shows anything, regradless of its effects on the society, seems serious injustice with the citizens. There should be a proper censorship law and it should be implemented so as to secure mental and physical health, growth and safety of the society.
