Whatever we see should have some knowledge, but today human is not a concern on people or children. They just do for sake of money, publicity.

Porn movies, crimes, non-sense videos that directly affect the worm-blood youngsters.

With the rapid development of science and technology, the television has become the indispensable part of our daily lives, no matter adults or children, who prefer to watch TV programs as recreation and a best way to alleviate stress. However, recently, an increasing number of people commit crimes due to watching too much violent plots on the TV programs. Therefore, whether the government should restrict the contents about violence and pornography in the television is a matter of some dispute. From my point of view, these contents should be forbidden immediately.

As we all know, youngsters are the principal group affected by these violent plots. Children\'s psychologies are still immature and unformed, they are unable to distinguish between right and wrong, eventually, excessive violence in the media does have a simple, direct stimulus-response effect on the young people. As a result, youngsters will imitate the scenes and actions of violence and crimes in TV programs, thus becoming criminals. Similarly, such kinds of programs have negative influence on adults as well. Although adults possess higher ability to judge right from wrong and have stronger self-control, once they are exposed to such violent plots too much, they will just become numb and take it for granted. In deed, many cases of adult crimes were the result of films or television.

Apart from the detrimental effect on people, there is a noticeable negative influence on society. Harmonious society as a whole needs all the people\'s efforts. In fact, many real-life cases of crimes remind us that only by hiring more policemen to maintain order would not have the desired results and even aggravate the financial burden on the country. Therefore, governments should take action to control these violent contents on the media.

To draw a conclusion, scenes of violence in TV programs are indeed harmful to both individuals and societies that government should strictly control the quality of programs.

I partially agree. It's because in this world it had bad and good. So we need the act of the violence because it to show to world what is happening around us. The bad effect is to the children because they very easily addicted to what's is happening around them, and that's why certain production give a warning that certain age only can see it. And that depends on parents to guide our child.

According to me, its all about human mindset, after all, we are grown-ups and we know what to accept and what to reject. Maybe, on television, they will have to make crimes a part of, to explain the situation. We come to know of all these violence happening in this world only via television.

So my point is, it is accepted only if is that much needed.

Hi friends,

Showing violence and crimes is the basic themes of the film and television industry for entertainment but I think it has good as well as bad or adverse affect similar like two phases of a coin. It is good because it teach and give solution to get out of such trouble like crime, rapes and violence to viewer in one other way.

But sometime the people take the negative character of film as their personality and start acting like of him and start fighting with other, making gangs, violence, rapes and crime but he didn't know that there is vast difference in reality and fake film stories.

Violence is not always a bad option to deal with some situations. Sometimes violence is a better way out than over tolerance. Because people who are busy in increasing your troubles in daily life, exalt you in the degree of cowardness. If MOVIES are showing violence to reveal the good, moral and ethical aspects of violence, coherent like whistle blowing etc then I don't think there is any problem to show such things in movies.

Talking about crime, if they are showing crime to aware people with a threatening moral to the public that after watching what happened to criminal at the end, people will not even dare to dream to try those crimes in real life.

Instead of raising our loud voice to band the "violent and crime" scenes, we should have be more concern about to stop showing "THE ADULT CONTENT AND NAKEDNESS OF WOMEN & NUDITY" which is ridiculously popular and important content of movies, which are proving a big hand to ruin ethical balance of our society & locality.

I think that there is no harm in showing violence in films and TV. Now a days kids and teenagers are linked with social media where they get aware of what's happening around them which is the reality, so they are so much socially active that they will not be offended if they are shown the reality of violence in TV and films.

However films can come up with a decent moral interrelated with the crime shown. This can help children to cope up with the situations if they face any and ultimately help them to grow a tough person.

Showing violence and crimes in television and in cinema is not bad. By viewing all these peoples are aware from the consequences of these crimes and violence. Peoples are also aware from the crimes which are going on in society.

But the bad thing that by nature human beings are easily adopt the bad things. Once they see, they try it in life, which is not good for that person and for his society.

Yes violence and crime should not be shown in television. This creates an adverse effect on children as well as on youth. By watching films children get new ideas on how to do robbery and theft.

Some of them understand that crime should not be done but most of them get inspired and they continue to do it in reality without even knowing that this may lead to jail. So, parents should take great care of their children for such case. And stop their children for doing such wrong things.

In my views showing violence and crime should not be allowed in films and on television. There is a long lasting effect of media on the people especially children and youth. "what we see is what we learn. " so violent activities and horrendous acts and crime should not be shown on tv.

It is a habit of human beings to easily adopt the wrong things and keep themselves away from good deeds. They will try to imitate those acts which is what actually happening todays newspapers are full of the news of chain snatching, riots, murder, etc etc.

New ways of thefts are being taught through the movies. Instead of learning the outcomes of "truth always win. And good wins over evils". Youth learns how evil acts can be done and what should the evil doers have done to keep themselves out from being caught and thus make a full proof plan for any robbery and stay safe.

Besides, everyone watch movies and daily soaps for entertainment and not for watching violence or crimes. It not only upsets the person but have a far reaching effect on the psychology of the person. It spreads fear in the mind of children.

Hi,

According to me, violence and crime do form an essential part of some daily soaps and movies but nonetheless also have a trailblazing impact on the psychology of people especially adolescents and small children viewing it. I would suggest that parents keep a watch on their kids and do keep a tab about their whereabouts. Also movies with more violence content must be censored before being aired on TV.

The crime shows should not only show the negative impacts of a particular incident but also make the viewers understand the psychological state and the very reason that made the accuse take such a drastic step. Children who have a very disturbed childhood or who do not have a pleasant environment at home are more likely to commit crimes. So, instead of blaming or accusing social media parents must take care of their children.

Most of the people believe that showing violence and crimes on television have a big impact on children and adults behavior, I agree to it, but other than the children adults must visualize that robbery, murder, fighting or violence are the components of movie or drama to make it attractive and interesting. We must perceive what is the message conveyed in it, what is the end result, who is the winner, hero or villain.

What I am against for is showing deliberated violence like bomb blasts, victims, injured crying for help, public shooters with no motive except spreading fear and trepidation. It is my request to Electronic media to please avoid showing such scenes on television, it may save lot of people with sensitive behavior from getting psychologic disorder or other ailment.

In my opinion showing violence is not a crime because films are only for enjoyment and our generation is so educated that it can easily accept the right one and doesn't effected by wrong scene. In other point I would like to say that if a film want to show the society problem then it is impossible for the filmmaker to make such movie without showing violence.

I think that showing violence and non-violence on television and in films is not a crime.

Because if a scene about a crime is shown in a movie then it is just shown for the enjoyment of the viewer but it is not a really crime scene. It also never inspires anyone.

Even if anyone is inspired he/she will be inspired only by the understandable or any moment where someone helps any person. If any person is inspired by the crime scenes then he must be a psycho or he must be a person who wants to get rid of his enemy or people who wants to kill people who do bad things to the society. Remember always movies never inspire to do crimes.

Depending upon the script need may arise to show a violence scene or a criminal scene in the movie. A movie has the ability to influence the views and opinions of its audience.These violence and criminal scenes should be projected in such a way that they give a clear message to its audience about the life long ill consequences of violence and crime. People who get immediately influenced by the movies will be discouraged from imitating such violent scenes. Also while watching the movie the viewer must use his/ her conscience to judge (rather than blindly imitating the scenes) whether the story of the movie or a scene in the movie or the message given by the movie is humane or inhumane, whether it is inclined towards promoting divisions in the society based on region, religion or any such social issue or whether it is inclined towards uniting the society irrespective of any of the social barriers .This is true not only in case of social issues but also in case of movies depicting family relations like parent- children relationship; bro- sis, grandparents and so on..supposing if there is a scene showing ill treatment given to the elderly parents by their children, it is upto the viewer to decide whether he/she should imitate it or no. Is it in accordance with the viewer's principles and moral values to follow such scenes? No wise person with good conscience will get carried away with the scenes shown in the movies. One watches a movie for entertainment purpose. One should act like a sponge when one comes across good messages to absorb them and be resistant towards evil messages and violence. As far as children are concerned there are lot of movies specially meant for them. Many interesting Educational programmes are broadcasted on T.V. which grab child's interest and attention and enable the child to enjoy learning. It is their parents duty to keep them from watching violent and criminal movies.

Who watch movie just for entertainment;my sincere request is to watch movies related to slap-stick or any other romantic movies. The movies are censored before they are released & the censor board gives an 'A' rating to a movie which has crime & violence as their main theme. It is the responsibility of parents & theatre people not to allow children watch these movies. Movies are made not only for the sake of entertainment but also for showing the world the different angles of the world. Do you think that there is no violence in the world. Violent movies are not made to inspire people to harm others;it in fact gives us a message to stand up against evil in the world.

Hi everyone.

Friends I think call violence and crime basic theme will be wrong, because today movie doesn't get hit by crime or violence scene, but by the story line and lot of other factors. We can take example of LAGAAN, TAARE ZAMIN PAR AND RECENTLY THE KINGS SPEECH WHICH WON OSCAR. But their are lots of movies where violence and crime scene are required, as we cannot reflect society problems by not showing violence. As it is the requirement of these movies.

So rather than banning these scene from movies, we can give moral in evry movie so that children can learn from it, not just imitate.

I won't support the crime or violence shows in films and on tv's. In the crime shows they narrate the entire story i.e., what the criminal had done for 20 minutes and finally they said that don't indulge in such cases for 2 min. Then what happens is the message which was conveyed in 20 min will be lasting than the one showed for 2 min.

These type of shows show an immense effect on every one. So the government has to take right steps towards this. The film makers also has to think about the children and society besides their interest in earning money.

Blindly they just follow them from their childhood stage itself. It grows with them proportionately tend to indulge in antisocial events.

We go to films or go through t. We. Channels for entertainment and refreshment.

Even we heard in news children bought the parents gun and killing the other children because of some reasons. All these was happened because of movies otherwise how can they learn such things.

Children will not be with their parents whole day. They will do such things beyond their parents. Taking care of children's is not possible because they will be out of the house most of the day.

Even if we say not to do such things they will not listen because they inspired a lot by seeing those things.

But, children get knowledge from it about what is a crime and if they do what they have to suffer. But some children take all these points as positive and they try to do that and thats wrong but parents should take care of it.

One thing everyone has to remember. In the past, only well-educated people were aware of the different forms of crimes and the punishments they receive from courts. But today, a school child can understand all these. Is this possible without movies ? So it's good to have crimes and the way they are fought against. Because of this, even children will know what are the offences in the name of law.

But the film-makers have to be very careful so that these issues don't cross limits and face severe criticism .In these days , it has become a new trend in TV channels , to show the incidents of murders and other abusing occurrences in an intrinsic & detailed manner . They ought to seek discrimination and elimination.Parents should also warn children not to watch such programs and imitate the action scenes.

One of the disadvantages is that, if children imitate these, they will become cruel, which is not good for the society , when they grew young. So it's parents' responsibility to stop them at their kid stage only .
