more-inThe government on Monday strictly asked TV channels not to air advertisements selling and promoting condoms because these are “indecent especially for children” and can create “unhealthy practices” among them. Indecent, vulgar, suggestive, repulsive or offensive themes or treatment shall be avoided in all advertisements. It said such advertisements may be telecast between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. to avoid exposure of such material to children. In September, a condom advertisement featuring Sunny Leone drew protests from a Surat-based group. City-based group Hindu Yuva Vahini staged a protest at one of the locations where the hoarding was displayed.
