New Delhi, March 5: A day after the Nirbhaya documentary 'India's Daughter' caused a ruckus in the Parliament, urging the government to ban the telecast in India, Nirbhaya's father said that the 'documentary holds a mirror to the society.'
Speaking to NDTV, Nirbhaya's father said that 'banning the documentary will only encourage people more to see it.'
"Everyone should watch the film. If a rapist speaks like that in jail, what will he do if he is freed," he said questioning the ban.
"The documentary exposes what is happening. I don't understand why it was banned, but if the country has taken a decision, we have to support it," he said. He said it shows what is our mindset and how we look at our children.
Despite the opposition from the Indian government BBC Four aired the documentary early on Thursday morning.
The documentary is based on the 2012 Delhi gangrape which shook the nation. It includes interviews of Nirbhaya's parents, doctors, lawyers and one of the accused Mukesh Singh. The filmmaker Leslee Udwin too appealed to the Indian government that banning the documentary was not right.
