The improvement of knowledge and growth of modern tools and information has made things super easy to circulate and talk to the whole world. We today easily get information of earthquakes or landslide going on in any area of the world by making use of satellite. To make this world a concise place and connecting everyone with fast and easy medium the media has placed an extremely crucial role. There have been days when passing of news got day and days and now with only a click the complete news reaches the earth in seconds. While using multimedia becoming globalised this content of the news headlines which is been circulated has become much vulnerable. When the audience of whole world most importantly is contacted if becomes evident that at times western country approached could injure the sentiments of individuals of eastern country and vice versa. To avoid differences rules must be shaped to modify which content would be well suited for display for a particular group of audience. Obscenity is one such ingredient which prohibits content from being screened or exhibited.
Obscenity can be in common conditions be called head pollution, a interpersonal problem which is been influencing our society most importantly. Obscenity can be explained as any photograph, amount, picture, article, video tutorial or a general population work which corrupts the minds and attracts the prurient hobbies or which is not appropriate with cultural moral criteria would be called obscene and vulgar.
Off past due, the media has played a major role to advertise obscenity via semi-nude ads, video-graphy, news in the form of soft-porn plus much more. They may be certainly putting on the line the principles of a whole generation simply for a bit more circulation, readership, viewership and a little more money.
Obscenity has effects on us, our children, the various areas of a modern culture, here's how:
Women and children are the worst reach by the expansion and exposure to obscenity. There's a direct link between the violence being shown in advertising and the actual act of violence against women. The instances of molestation, sexual harassment and rape are on the rise contributing to this is actually the continuous bombardment of intimacy, nudity and violence in the advertising.
Obscenity is also resulting in the young generation's growing curiosity about indulging in sexual activities, further causing problems such as premarital love-making, teenage being pregnant, sexually sent diseases and much more. Future threats of an open show of obscenity could be as damaging as the loss of ethics in the approaching generations.
In a country where relationship is known as a pure bond and sex will serve a valuable purpose of posting love and purity, obscenity is getting this bond a fresh meaning of your animal act, for the intended purpose of fulfilling one's sexual needs - the female body becoming a mere thing.
OBSCENITY : A FORM OF MIND POLLUTION Globe pollution is bad. Drinking water and Sound pollution is worse. Air pollution continues to be worse. However the worst of most is Brain Pollution. It corrupts the most valuable trait of Individuals Types : It corrupts THINKING. Among the most common forms of Head Pollution detected today is OBSCENITY
In last few years, a sizable Portion of the Media and particularly the Leading ones have taken liberty to flout all Norms related to Obscenity. A systemic overdose of Nudity and Vulgarity has been forced into the brain of common Viewer through News Papers, Television, Films, Journals, Hoardings, and Posters.
Their purpose is by using a cheap short cut to catch attention and so beat competition. They want to make quick money by offering their real matter blended with so called HOT Products.
The long term effect of this bombardment of love-making and nudity is leading to corrupting the Thought Process because thoughts are bound to come regarding to what the truth is, read and listen to.
The psychologists across the world are cautioning that contact with Media violence and gender, have damaging effect on the kids and minors and children.
Common man and Parents of small children come to mind, they feel helpless and frustrated. Their Right of bringing up their children in a Head Pollution Free Atmosphere is snatched away.

Our answer- One of the signals of primitive man getting civilized was that he started wearing Leafs and Barks of Trees and shrubs. It has been a long gradual process of real human civilization. If today so called liberals are advocating nudity in the name of liberalization then they are taking us back again to the primitive man and primitive civilization.
