NCPCR pulls up the Thackeray Govt for failing to file FIR against the maker of the Netflix series Bombay Begums for showing kids snorting drugs.



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.





The underground artist Inspectah Gracious has come up with a new out-of-the-box Hip Hop single. The song aptly named “Hush Haters” is aiming to live up to its name and create new waves in the music industry.

Inspectah Gracious (Inspectah G) is known for her previous songs such as “Hip Hop’s Soldier”, “Magic”, “Voices In My Head” which experiments with a couple of genres like R&B, Old School, Drill, and has been featured in esteemed publications such as Rolling Stone India, Daily Music, LiveLee, and Genesis India. She started her career with Rap music and has been earning acclaim and praise in the niche segment of the Indian underground rap movement. Inspectah G will be exploring even more genres of music in 2023.

With no industry godfathers or connections, Inspectah G is a self-made artist, hustling to rise up to the Industry bias. Being a female artist in the music industry comes with a daily dose of challenges even for Inspectah –

“You have to overcome a daily dose of sexism with people in the music industry. A female artist is criticised and scrutinised much more than a male artist. Female musicians are sometimes criticized for being too sexual, as well as for not being sexual enough. They are criticized either for being too feminine or for being too manly. They can’t be outspoken or too fat. They are being criticized if they take a political stance through their songs”, says Inspectah.

However, she has never let such forms of criticism affect her work. She hopes to inspire more women to make their careers in music.

Inspectah G has released her new single HUSH HATERS today which is a message to all the people who’ve tried to pull her down.

This is not just a song, it’s an emotion. It’s a message to all ‘em lying folks who tried to pull me down with their bullsh*t’, she says.

She is from the second generation of the Hip Hop scene in Mumbai and has been making a name for herself with her powerful beats and lyrics. Hush Haters is a message to everyone who has ever doubted or done her wrong. With this song, Inspectah G proves that she is a force to be reckoned with.

Inspectah takes her musical inspiration from the Western American and East Asian cultures. This influence is clearly evident to anyone who listens to her music.

Yeah! ‘The Squid Game’ ( 2021 ) was one of the greatest survival drama series & the most watched Netflix series that created havoc with its intense storyline & goosebumps scenes eventually pulling the audience worldwide adding to the popularising of the ‘Survival’ genre.

However, to the best of the information of the viewers, it is worth telling that unlike the original series, in the reality show the fatality risk will not be there. Also the Casting rounds for the Squid Games are open worldwide with the 3 subdivisions: Uk Casting, US casting and the Global Casting and the registrations can be done at by candidates above the age of 21 and a mandate of the speakers well versed and fluent in English which looks a bit controversial since the original series was in Korean.

Also what could be demanding is the uncertainty in focusing on the shortlisted survivors with sufficient and equal footage ( owing to no lead factor ) . Rumours are also sparked that the eliminated candidates from scratch to final will all set to go empty handed with just a lone survivor entitled to the whole cash money. But what can be the sureshot possibility is the release of the versions in the other languages in the coming time if the Squid Game: The Challenge Season 1 turns out to be a success.
