- Times of India
On 15th August 2007' Times of India Headline on front page - "60 & Getting Sexier"- Gandhiji, Subhash Chandra bose, Chandrashekhar Azad, Tatya tope, Lal Bahadur, Zhansi ki rani,Bhagat singh and many more gave their life for the mother country India, a country supposedly known as sexy India today according to TIMES Newspaper.
Most Indians know India as Bharat mata. Now, if a woman is passed on a comment it's known as abuse and the culprit is punishable according to Indian penal code.
In this case I believe the Times of India is punishable and also for hurting the feelings of Indians who respect mother India and don't feel anything is "sexy" or "sexier" about it.
We, the undersigned, Call on the Ministry of Information and broadcasting to take serious action on the language used by Times of India regarding the name of the country and on Independence day!
It is an embarrassment for us to have a national daily writing something like "SEXY" or "SEXIER" for mother India.
The Please don't call our mother country "sexier" petition to Times of India was written by Santosh and is in the category Media Issues at GoPetition.
