In a scathing letter, the NCPCR accused the Mumbai Police of delaying registration of FIR against the makers of “Bombay Begums” and even not giving any attention to the Commission’s written request.

On Wednesday, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights wrote a letter to Maharashtra Home Secretary and Mumbai commissioner accusing them of deliberately delaying action against the makers of the controversial Netflix series “Bombay Begums” and asked them to register an FIR within the case immediately.

In separate letters to Maharashtra Home Secretary and Mumbai Police, the NCPCR mentioned that that they had received a complaint against the controversial Netflix series “Bombay Begums” in March this year, accusing the makers of showing objectionable contents. The NCPCR said that the complainants have accused the makers of showing children to be indulging in snorting drugs and taking indecent pictures and selfies within the classroom because portraying and beautifying these behaviors of children and publishing them in the country is against the spirit of the law . 

In order to protect the welfare of children and children, NCPCR considers the content of the program to be offensive when taking any of the above-mentioned actions, and requests the broadcasting service to to prevent such publication. In March this year, the Commission had also asked Netflix to submit an action taken report within 24 hours, failing which it said it might be constrained to initiate appropriate action . However, as per NCPCR, Netflix didn’t act on the Commission’s complaint but merely gave a justification for all objectionable scenes from the series highlighted by the commission.

Mumbai Police fails to initiate action against makers of “Bombay Begums”

The committee stated in a letter to the government of Maharashtra that the makers violated Article 77 of the 2015 Juvenile Justice Act. Subsequently, the committee has asked the Mumbai Police Commissioner to investigate the matter and ensure that there are no other relevant child labor laws or “Guidelines for Regulating Children’s Participation in TV Series, Reality Shows, and Advertising” are violated. 

The committee stated that they had applied to the Mumbai DCP law enforcement agency on April 12, requesting it to submit an FIR for the Netflix series “Mumbai Begums” on the grounds that it violated the 2015 Juvenile Justice Act and various POCSO regulations. However, despite the committee’s instructions, the Mumbai police did not file any complaints against the makers of the controversial series, stating that they need“permission from higher authorities” as this matter falls in the grey area and without the approval of higher officers, they can’t lodge an FIR in the matter.

“The Commission fails to understand that how a cognizable offense U/sec. 77 of Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 falls in the grey area and why Mumbai Police is not willing to register an FIR, despite this being cognizable offence,” NCPCR said in its letter to Manu Kumar Shrivastva, Additional Chief Secretary.

In In a severe letter, NCPCR accused the Mumbai police of delaying the FIR registration of the “Mumbai Begums” makers, even ignoring the committee’s written request. “Since, this is a serious issue where police is not following the laid procedure of the land, hence, you are requested to look into this matter and ensure that no further child rights and law of land is violated in this matter,” the NCPCR chief wrote to Maharashtra government.

After some Twitter users called the OTT platform’s latest web series “Mumbai Begums” a misrepresentation of children, the NCPCR learned of the anger online. The apex child rights body has asked Netflix to stop broadcasting the recently launched web series “Mumbai Begums” on the grounds that the image of children in the web series is inappropriate.

“बाजीराव मस्तानी मधील चिमाजी आप्पांची नकारात्मक व्यक्तिरेखा चुकीची” – चित्रपट निर्माते महेश नेने

पेशव्यांच्या लढ्यात महत्वाची भूमिका निभावणारे चिमाजी आप्पा हे बाजीराव मस्तानी या सिनेमात नकारात्मक भूमिकेत दाखवल्याने, त्यांच्यावर सिनेमा करणारे  महेश नेने यांनी त्यांचे योग्य स्वरूप आणि त्यांच्या बलिदानाचा इतिहास प्रेक्षकांपुढे मांडणे कसे गरजेचे असल्याचे सांगितले. 

“बाजीराव मस्तानी हा सिनेमा दणक्यात सुरु झाला होता. त्यात संजय लीला भन्साली आणि त्यातील कलाकार व अप्रतिम संगीत म्हटल्यावर त्या सिनेमाला नक्कीच चारचांद लागले असतील अशी माझी खात्री होती. सिनेमातील मस्तानीची दणदणीत एन्ट्री, एका हिंदु राजाने दुसऱ्या हिंदु राजाला केलेली मदत आणि इतर अनेक दृष्य मनाला खरच भावून गेले.”

“चित्रपट पुढे सरकत होता आणि बाजीरावांचे धाकटे बंधु चिमाजी आप्पांची काही दृष्ये डोळ्यासमोर आली आणि तिथेच कुठेतरी सिनेमा वेगळ्या दिशेला भरकटतोय असे मनाला वाटू लागले.”

“चिमाजी आप्पांचे भारदस्त व्यक्तिमत्व त्यांचे पेशवाई मधील मोलाचे योगदान, प्रत्येक लढाईतील त्यांचे महत्व कुठेतरी बाजूला राहुन संपूर्ण नकारात्मक व्यक्तिरेखा समोर दिसू लागली. ज्यांनी १७३७ ते १७३९ या काळात पोर्तुगिजांना कडवी झुंज देऊन वसईचा किल्ला जिंकून पोर्तुगीजांना हद्दपार केले अशा व्यक्तिचे असे संपूर्ण नकारात्मक चित्र पाहून मन विषण्ण झाले. आज चिमाजी आप्पांचे व्यक्तिमत्व जर अशा चुकिच्या स्वरूपात आपण तरुण पिढीपुढे मांडले तर त्यांनी, जे जिवाची पर्वा न करता देशासाठी निस्वार्थी योगदान दिले त्याला काहीच अर्थ राहणार नाही आणि त्याच दिवशी मी ठरविले कि चिमाजी आप्पांचा इतिहास आणि त्यांच्या शौर्याची गाथा लोकांसमोर आणायची आणि त्यांचे पेशवाईतील महत्व लोकांच्या निदर्शनास आणून द्यायचे. हीच खरी त्यांना आणि त्यांनी गाजवलेल्या पराक्रमांना भावपूर्ण श्रध्दांजली ठरेल.”

याच करीता महेश नेने प्रोडक्शन “चिमाजी आप्पा- एक अविस्मरणीय योध्दा” हा चित्रपट लवकरच तुमच्या भेटीला घेउन येत आहे.
