Indian Censors Redefine Violence Against Women

Scenes in Which Women are Hit are Regulated Now

As the Times of India reports, India now has new rules regarding violence against women in movies and when it can and can't be shown. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had to examine the film Bazar-E-Husn and gave it the "A" rating (which stands for "Adults only") only after 3 cuts. The producers will appeal that decision.

Basically, it all revolves around slaps to the face - anything beyond that was taboo anyway. And these slaps will now only pass the Indian censorship if the scene in which it happens shows that the husband hits his wife. If that happens between unmarried persons, it is prohibited.

After filmmakers attacked that decision because the films oftentimes tell historic stories and slaps may be an important plot point, the CBFC replied that there was no such guideline for the censors. However, the Times of India possesses such an internal document dating from January 2013.
