Bhopal: A BJP MP in Madhya Pradesh has said that easy access to obscene content by young people through the internet and smartphones is the main reason behind rising crimes against women.
“Now the youngsters can easily browse obscene contents from internets through their smartphones. It results in a negative impact on their minds and leads to perversity,” Khandwa MP Nandkumar Singh Chauhan said.
The former state BJP chief made this comment while answering a reporter’s question about the increase in crime against women in Madhya Pradesh.
Newspapers have reported cases where watching obscene content on mobile phones led to the commission of the crime, the lawmaker said.
When asked why the Cyber Cell of police is not acting against circulation of obscene videos or pictures, Chauhan said police cannot check each and every phone.
Chauhan had stirred up a controversy earlier this year when he claimed Pakistan’s hand in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl at Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir.
