Ever since confirmed reports have come around how money generated from the sales of pirated DVDs is used for funding terrorist and underworld activities, there has been an outrage amongst the Bollywood industry folks. The issue seems to be much bigger now. While earlier there were cries around saying NO to piracy in order to save the industry from sinking further, today the issue is about safeguarding your own life. With the money accumulated from piracy seemingly finding a way into the hands of trouble makers who are busy buying arms and ammunition, it has become a part of much major concern.

Should we, as 'aam junta', at the least do our bit by refusing to fall pray to piracy lest it comes back to kill us? Shouldn't we make sure that we spread awareness about this menace that is not just making quite a few jobless but also indirectly facilitating mass murder? Bollywood pleads yet again to support this case and this time around, it is looking at not just safeguarding the ones impacted within the industry but also the common man!

Farah Khan:
It is great to see Mumbai reacting to the blast with movements such as the ones seen at the Gateway of India. But this is not all. The information about how money from piracy funds terror should be made available to people so that they are educated around how they themselves are getting impacted. Around the issue of buying pirated movies, my point is that there has to be a curb on having these copies come out. At the end of the day, when you see a movie right in front of you, it is a huge temptation. You see it on the streets, on the web. Why is that allowed? You can tell people not to have drugs but if it is served on the platter, how would you resist not trying it out? Same holds good for movies too.

I agree, this is quite terrible and let's come together to endorse the view that contributing to piracy only helps the evil forces buy bombs and bullets.
