Andhra Pradesh Mahila Commission Chairperson Nannapeni Rajakumari's strange statement that TV serials could be influencing many women to resort to violence, crimes against men has raised the debate of impact of TV on women and crimes against men.
The heinous incidents of a wife brutally murdering her husband and another woman where an attempt was made to kill the husband in Srikakulam came to light, the debate is on whether TV is the really culprit in such hate crimes and the cases of jilted lovers or cheating cases.
No doubt, a few TV serials have crossed the line to an extent and making provoking content to cash in on the emotions of people and allegedly 'abetting' crime, but the moot question is that the censoring the TV serials is possible? And will the censoring TV content would reduce the crimes against women or men?
That apart, Nannapaneni's demand for establishing Purusha Commission (Men Commission) ala Mahila Commission (Women Commission) is getting applause from several corners. Let's wait and see how Chandrababu or other TDP leaders would respond. If AP forms Purusha Commission, it will be the first state in entire India to have such commission to curb crimes against men by women and deals with such cases.
