Mizoram children getting addicted to Porn

Zeenews reported that Porns are available to Mizo children in Cyber Cafes and Dish Television Services from Myanmar that can become a social menace later..The followings are from Zee news

Aizawl, June 25: Easy access to pornographic sites in cyber cafes and the availability of dish television services from Myanmar offering adult content have led to an addiction to pornography among children in Mizoram. But the state government is yet to wake up to the grave issue.

While cyber cafes in this northeastern state do not have a mechanism to check the surfing of adult websites by minors, the direct to home (DTH) services coming from Myanmar offer at least two to three pornographic channels. Chinese adult DVDs can also be easily acquired from the market for about Rs. 100.

But the Mizoram government doesn’t have a cell to prevent underage groups from frequenting these sites and channels. The home department has sent some officials for training in cyber patrolling.

‘We don’t have any law prohibiting underage children from using cyber cafes or a law that makes cyber cafe owners check underage groups from surfing these elements, nothing mandatory made for the owners,’ said Lalthlamuana, deputy secretary of the information and communication technology (ICT) wing of the Mizoram Planning Department.

‘The home department has to look after these problems; we have already given a proposal in this regard,’ he told reporters.

Internet cafes in Aizawl are usually thronged by minors on the pretext of playing computer games. The owners also don’t care much about the websites these children visit as monitoring of the sites could affect their business.

‘If they pay the bills, it’s fine with me. They do their own business with the computers and it is not always good for my business to intrude or monitor what sites they click on to,’ said Sangtea, a cyber cafe owner in Aizawl.

But he agreed that underage visitors do surf objectionable content in the Internet parlours. An owner of a broadband cyber cafe and gaming parlour here, Chhanhima, said above 40 percent of his costumers were underage children.

‘I can’t ask my customers each and every time not to visit porn sites, it’s like risking my business, so I just keep quiet. I don’t want to know what they’re doing once they sit,’ he said.

The ICT Wing circulated some dos and don’ts of cyber technology in a bid to educate the older population. Awareness pamphlets and articles were also published in several newspapers.

‘At least the government should make it mandatory to put up parental filter at each cyber cafe,’ Lalthlamuana said.

Apart from the cyber world, DTH services coming from Myanmar are further adding to the problem.

‘Most of the satellite dish services from Myanmar have at least two or three hardcore porn channels,’ said a dealer on condition of anonymity. Surprisingly, non-governmental organisations and religious bodies have not raised their voice on this issue.

    This is a very serious problem for the overall northeast people.
    We are basically a tribal states but the way the younger generations are presenting themselves is quite disheartening.
    Northeastern peoples are treated as sexually active, girls as cheap and easily available for sex. Used to dress very sleazy and slutty.

    All this things is showing a very negative image to the outside world.

    Younger generations take undue advantage of their freedom and take their life for granted. most of sexual abuse and drugs peddling or consumption cases has been the northeastern people only.

    Please we should be doing something to change all this things or else we won’t have no self respect left.

    Dress Code and Modesty

    Often in headlines of national dailies we see news of rape, exploitation and intimidation of north-eastern girls in the national capital Delhi. There has always been strong condemnation of such crimes but at the same time many a times fingers has been raised on the morality of north eastern girls.

    There has been a general misconception in the minds of local population and northern plain people that people from Northeastern part of the country generally girls are of immoral characters. They dress scantily, are used to drinking and involve in other immoral activities. Such general thinking has corrupted the minds of the local population and these in turn has resulted in the alienation of north eastern people right in the Capital of the country.
    These have been visible many a times when Northeastern people try finding rooms and proper accommodation and have been refused by landlords to housed CHINKIES (ref by local people) saying they are uncivilized and immoral.

    So how come such perception about northeastern people came to being? Who is at fault for all such things? No doubt such misconceptions haven’t developed overnight and there must be reasons behind it.

    Northeastern cultures are predominantly tribal in nature but with the advent of Christianity many changes have occurred. People’s mindset has changed and has become suddenly westernized in outlook and dressing styles.
    Such things have come in conflict with the reserved and orthodox local populations.
    Which is reason enough for the change in attitude towards northeastern people?

    Delhi is the capital of the country and many people from all parts of the country migrate here in search of better opportunities and jobs. Include migrant workers and laborers in large groups from male dominated societies like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh etc.

    Northeastern people though westernized in their outlook but not educated enough to get high paying jobs end up in cheap dwellings areas like Munirka, Kotla, Santiniketan etc where all the migrant workers also stay.

    The migrant workers mostly males staying in groups are sex starved as they are staying far from their wives or don’t have the luxury to afford girls friends. At the same time high fashioned easily available northeastern girls become easy prey for them. It has been noticed that most of the rape cases involving northeastern girls has been committed by un-educated migrant class like Autowallas, Taxi drivers, Bus conductors and drivers etc.

    There has been many debates regarding dress codes of northeastern girls which been refused by many. Though it’s quite true being a democratic country we have the liberty to live our own life according to our wishes. But we should learn to give respect to others feelings also. Delhi predominantly a Hindu society has always been reserved as far as women are concern with a very less liberty given to them regarding lifestyle and dress codes. This has come in to conflict with our same ideas. But nevertheless we are at the receiving end and we should learn to adjust to the same. we should always remember the saying that when in Rome do as Romans do.

    Northeastern girls should learn to draw a limit between Fashionable dressing and indecency. Any thought provoking dresses should not be worn as we are responsible for our own safety.

    We are in ourselves an ambassador for our community and should learn to safeguard the same with our sense of dressing and living standards rather than dragging the name of our parents and society into wrong things. It has generally been seen that northeastern girls take undue advantage of the absence of their parents and involve into indecent activities giving a serious questioning to their upbringing process.

    There are also local girls who dress the same with mini micro skirts and scantily dresses but the difference has always been the economic class differences.
    Such girls especially from higher middle classes live in posh areas and have their own conveyances so they are seldom harm but just imagine a northeast girl wearing thought provoking dress coming out from the narrow lanes of shantiniketan or Munirka and walking up the main road to catch an auto late in the death night.

    Is she doing a right thing?

    If such a girl is not rape who else will be……………………………..

    DRESS FASHIONABLY BUT WITH MODESTY.
