The Chinese government has a tradition of keeping its watchful eye on all media. Since the rapid growth of the World Wide Web in the 1990s they have constantly invented new ways of censorship to control the world’s most democratic medium, the Internet, as well. Not everything on the Internet, readily available elsewhere, can be accessed from within China.
It is estimated that some 30,000 Chinese civil servants are monitoring Internet traffic and blocking content that is deemed undesirable. Typing in sensitive keywords such as ‘democracy’, ‘Falun Gong’ or ‘porno’ in a search engine results in an error message. Websites of a sensitive nature are being blocked. Internet service providers also (self)censor, as do individuals: many people do not express their real thoughts because they know these will be censored anyway.
Dear Prime Minister/ I&B minister /Minority Minister Dasmunsi ji
I appreciate your decision of banning / holding / censoring the movie / book / drama / article ” DA VINCI CODE ” which was reportedly hurting the linguistic / religious / regional sentiments of Hindu / Muslim / Christian /
Buddhist / Sikh. I also appreciate your tough decision will bring a set back to the evil intentions of terrorists / naxals / communal forces / foreign hands. Having successfully banned the movie in the country / state of GOA, we have shown to the world about our stands on communal harmony / freedom of speech / human rights / patriotism. However the
state mentioned above have recorded record sale of 60,000 copies of the book overnight. We need to run
a CID / CBI / IB / RAW probe into this issue, since there is strong indication of foreign hands in it.
As a responsible citizen of the great secular nation/state I strongly condemn the intention of Mr. Dan Brown and Tom Hanks for having challenged the communal harmony. I personally feel India should be barring the entry of above mentioned people, publisher of the book, and all the movie crew to India. I also request you to ban all the literature work of the author and all the movies of the actor in India.
As far as your decision, to watch the movie / read the book with the representatives of the corresponding communities who feel / have / assume / anticipate hurt, can be described as sacrificing. Since you are taking time to review the movie / book / drama, amidst your all busy work (I strongly think you have inherited this nature of sacrificing form party precedent). I also request you to read the whole novel in front of the same panel consisting of priests / censor committee, so that there is no need of one more formality / review. I request you to rate it as minus five stars.
I will be sending you lists of dramas (“Me nathuram ghodse bolthoi ” etc ) , movies ( ” water ” , ” sins ” etc ) , books ( you have banned all of them , we will request you if there is any new book released) , paintings , songs , newspapers. I kindly requests you to watch/ read / listen the same with the corresponding communities and rate them with minus five stars (- *****) and ban them. Before any eruption of riots.
Please note: there are several geeks in this country going to download the theater print of the movie the day it is released in US. I request you to shut down Internet for a month so that the pirated copy of the movie does not reach the general public
