National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has asked Netfilx to stop streaming its newly launched series Bombay Begums within 24 Hours.
An immediate notice was sent to the OTT Platform after some tweets regarding the inappropriate contents shown in the series came in notice of NCPCR’s chairperson Priyank Kanoongo. The Commission has given Netflix a period of 24 hours to stop streaming of the series.
The notice mentions that the type of content shown in the series will not only pollute the young minds of the children but may also result into abuse and exploitation of children at the hands of the offenders. Further, the Commission does not allow representing, portraying and glorifying children in India in such a manner on any media platform/internet/OTTs, etc.
The notice further states that Netflix should take extra precaution while streaming any content in respect of the children or for the children and shall also refrain themselves from getting into such things.
The series shows minors taking drugs and talking about having casual sex.
A legal action will be initiated against Netflix if the platform fails to stop streaming of its series within the given time period.
