Roadies: "Fun" while boys' get 'ball busted?'

Hi All,

"The fun really begins at the Immunity Task when the boys put their future generations at stake during the Ball Bursting quiz ;). Here, the girls get tested on their Hindi vocabulary - one mistake and the guys get it between their legs. " ........................

Thus goes the description for the latest Roadies episode in which young boys get whacked on their scrotum with a pole!, as girls answer a quiz which supposedly tests Hindi - our National language... television has touched a new low, an abysmal low just in the pursuit of TRPs, advocating mis-andry in the process.'

See the ball breaker episode, all the 5 videos of this Roadies episode are in the below playlist:



And react at their community in orkut and blog: http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Community?cmm=17954878 & http://www.in.com/roadies-blogs-showblogs-detail-255.html and their email roadies@mtvindia.com & editor@mtvindia.com ( roadies (at) mtvindia (dot) com & editor (at) mtvindia (dot) com)

We should complain to ministry of Broadcasting and other watchdog bodies about this inhuman
and negatively influencing trend........ in general roadies inculcates hatred as a desired attitude and makes the format of their show a very 'dog eat dog' one... which is not at all a responsible thing to do.

Roadies is just riding by pandering to young peoples baser instincts of hatred, bitchiness, scheming and rudeness and such undesirable traits, we need to stop this immediately.

We may see people emulating these things on campus/ragging soon and god forbid we lose lives, even otherwise spreading a message that humiliating and paining others are "fun-stuff" is worse enough.

My comment to the "Roadies" production unit:

Hi raghu and other makers of roadies,

How did u all think that the "ball busting" task was an amusing thingto
do to enrich roadies?. It was the most barbaric thing i had seen on tv.
Had you guys assessed the physical risks and the negative effects the
"ball busting" task would have over the impresisonable target audience
Roadies commands?.

We at protect indian family demand a explanation and a public apology
from the production team of roadies, and would urge you to cease and
desist from incorporating such negative footage in future roadies
editions.

Is this Scrotum-Pole experience the meaning of "Roadies - hell down under? ", it better not be!, since we will react against such anti-social 'feeds' in the name of FUN.

regards
Gokul

Hi Raghu and others,It is very unfortunate that in the name of fun, all kinds of bodily harm is inflicted on the guys participating in it. Just because there is a lot of competition in the media, it doesn't mean that anything and everything can be performed or shown. Inflicting bodily harm or any kind of violence is a violation of Press Council of India norms and broadcasters norms. This is allowed to happen just because men are considered disposable creatures. I request you to immediately STOP the show failing which I will have to take the next step. No civilized society can allow such stupid shows in the name of fun.Awaiting an realy reply.Regards.Rohan

Ball Bursting and Bobbitising (cutting the penis by women) are comicstuff for society. These were social norms even before 498a or DV came.Men are considered disposable and are emotionally castrated at age of7. If they become criminals and rapists, then they raise a hue and cry.Who gave the society the right to make men disposable?We did.Unless, we change the attitudes ourselves, and kick the society, thejudges and politicians will not change.]We have not change attitude of a million men in next 6 months throughmedia and bombardment in Internet.

feedback@mtvindia. comSir, SUB : "Ball busting" in "Roadies"The makers of "Roadies" should apologise for the propagation of misandry as an acceptable culture. Misandry, is a abuse of males based on gender. We have too many 'socially accepted' forms of misandry, that males need to be AWARE of. Males, unfortunately, do not speak up for themselves when they are abused. Here are a few examples of 'socially accepted' misandry :1. Circumcision in males2. Conscription of males without compensation for the years lost ( unlike in 'maternal leave' for females )3. Much more funding for breast cancer, as opposed to prostate cancer4. Ragging, etc.etc.This is also due to TV advertisements . - from domestic cleaning agents, to car insurance, to food, which all portray the male as the stupid moron, and the female as the one who provides a solution to his stupidity by using the product being advertised. This creates gender roles where women are the smart, cool, sophisticated and innocent gender, and men are the complacent, retarded, pathetic gender.Insentising people to the pain felt by males is deplorable. The producers must make amends by apologising and making males aware of misandry and their rights.Parthasarathy

ViricideViricide is the systematic killing of men for various reasons, usually cultural. Viricide is seen as a gender crime. Viricide may happen during war to reduce an enemy's potential pool of soldiers.Perhaps one of the earliest examples of viricide in recorded history occurred some time during the 600s BCE when Ionian pirates massacred the men of Miletus, forced the Milesian women into marriage with them, and settled the city of Miletus in the Milesian men's stead.[4] It has been written that forever afterward the Milesian women would neither eat with their husbands nor address them by name.[5][6]The most famed example of viricide in Western literature is recounted in the Book of Matthew in the New Testament of the Bible. If modern scholars are correct in establishing the birth of Jesus as around the year 3 BCE, the slaughter would have taken shortly thereafter. Matthew 2:16 states that Herod ordered what is known as the Massacre of the Innocents, which modern scholars note may be apocryphal[7] rather than an actual historical event:" Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and all its vicinity, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the magi. " —Matthew 2:16, New American Standard BibleIn 627 CE, the men and boys of the Qurayza were beheaded by Muhammad[8] after the tribe surrendered. They condition of the surrender were they would be tried and passed judgement by Sa'd ibn Mu'adh, a chief of their allied tribe of Aws. After asking what the punishment for treason was in Jewish law, all the males were decapitated.Pakistan targeted male intellectuals for extermination in the erstwhile province of East Pakistan (present day Bangladesh) during the 1971 Bangladesh atrocities[9] Male Gendercide was also carried out by Pol pot in Cambodia, thanks to which a large percentage of Cambodia's present population are women.[10] During the 1984 Anti-Sikh riots men were targeted overwhelmingly on account of them being breadwinners of the family.[10] More recents examples include the 1988 Anfal campaign against Kurdish men and boys[11][12] [13] in Iraq and the Srebrenica massacre of Bosniak men and boys on July 12, 1995http://en.wikipedia .org/wiki/ Gendercide

Such inhuman and negatively influencing trend has to be nipped in the bud........ in general "Roadies" inculcates hatred as a desired attitude and makes their format akin to 'dog eat dog'... which is not at all a responsible thing to do. This disturbing trend has been continuing right from the audition(initial selection of the participants) where the aspirants are humiliated, violated, abused and some time inflicted pain, etc.Roadies is just riding by pandering to the young audience's baser instincts of hatred, bitchiness, scheming and rudeness and such undesirable traits, we need to stop this immediately.
We at Protect Indian Family, NGO, Mumbai and Save Indian Family Foundation a worldwide network of NGOs demand suitable actions against the erring parties, especially the makers of Roadies and a public apology so that we can try and contain the damage which has already been caused.
Requesting your office to keep us intimated of the actions taken up at each stage of the process.
Warm Regards

The episode can be seen at,http://mtvindia. com/roadies/ videos_episodes. php?showname= Episode%202We all know the TV shows are blind followers of sensationalism and they areso blind that they have forgotten and deeply buried their sense of socialresponsibility. Performing such a dastardly act on TV is spreading poison inthe society. The notoriously famous MTV music channel is not coming underscanner for the first time. Your good office has issued warnings to thischannel earlier as well for other objectionable content and the channel hasbeen instructed by your good office to display the warning on their telecastsome one year back.MTV being a habitual offender of violation of basics of Content Code andSelf Regulation Guidelines of Broadcasters, needs to be banned from airingits shows since its very concept of program is detrimental to the existenceof a well behaved society.It injects, violence (especially violence against males), insensitivity,bitchiness, hatred and dispassion amongst its participants and viewersequally. If the channel had shown violence against females, the act wouldhave made great news and probably by now the channel would have been offair. But since it is against men, it is being allowed to continue?Violence, irrespective of the gender of its victim, is condemnable in allforms and needs strict action against its perpetrators.We, Save Indian Family Foundation <http://www.saveindi anfamily. org> stronglyurge removal of the program from air and a strict penalty be imposed on thechannel and its designers and content publishers as your good office maydeem as fit and just.Thanks & RegardsViragPublic Relations OfficerSave Indian Family Foundation, BangaloreReality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.http://www.saveindi anfamily. orghttp://www.antidowr y.orghttp://legalfighter .wordpress. comhttp://www.wemen. us/http://www.crisp- india.orghttp://www.merinews .com/allArticles .do;jsessionid= BD553EEC98EAF167 806C6437009FFBE6 ?choice=ByUser& pageNo=1& userId=crusaderhttp://legalfighter .instablogs. com/http://crusader- indianjustice. blogspot. com/

I agree with Gokul. I personally do not have any regard for the creators of this game show, who display utter lack of decency in their show and misbehave with the candidates. Though I also do not understand why people act as such wannabes and take part in such game shows to get humiliated at the hands of intellectually-starved hosts, but then the lure of money has made people do stranger things. The show provides a means for deranged individuals to get kicks out of a public "ragging and humiliation session", but something like a ball-busting session really takes it to the extreme. Since our sensor boards seem to be busy cashing in on such opportunities, I wonder if something can be done to prevent these hoodlums from violating the norms of social decency and causing grave injuries to the poor candidates who fall for the lure of fame and money, and end up making fools of themselves.
