Minister Renuka Chowdhury compliments Aamir Khan
January 29, 2008 12:00:00 AM IST By Glamsham Editorial
Women and Child Development Minister Renuka Chowdhury has complimented film star turned director Aamir Khan for his attempt to show that dyslexia should not be treated as a handicap and children with this problem should be brought up like others.
She said the film TAARE ZAMEEN PAR had therefore done yeoman service as far as school children were concerned.
The Minister was speaking informally after a meeting with school principals, teachers and educationists in the wake of recent incidents of child violence in schools.
Earlier, she said her Ministry would hold discussions with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Information and Broadcasting Ministry about the depiction of excessive scenes of violence and sex depicted in films and on television.
Both the Minister and Dr Loveleen Kacker, Joint Secretary (Child Welfare), agreed that the recent cases of child violence including that of a Gurgaon school student shooting dead another child with his father's gun could have been the result of excessive scenes of violence in Indian films and TV.
