Censor-cut on ‘Udta Punjab’ not proper

Dear Editor,
Everyone knows that unfortunately large section of youth and even school-going children has become drug-addicted, this being the reason that despite the big Modi-wave across the country in last 2014-elections to Lok Sabha, BJP-Akali Dal combine could not fare well with even BJP stalwart Arun Jaitley losing the elections. Films if produced with good intentions tend to induce reforms by highlighting the evils in society. Even TV serials have scenes of practical day-to-day life of society-members, and highlight prevailing evils with an aim to reform the society. Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should review its decision of censoring ‘Udta Punjab’ either in title or in contents. However certain scenes if really desired to be censored for other reasons may be cut but keeping in view that highlighting drug-menace in Punjab is no reason for censoring the scenes or title of the film.
