31 arguments for and against airing December 16 gangrape documentary

India’s Daughter, a documentary on the December 16 Delhi gangrape, has triggered debates everywhere — from dinner tables to televisions screens.

The documentary by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin shows an interview with one of the six men who fatally raped a 23-year-old woman in a moving bus in 2012. The government has served a legal notice to the BBC in connection with the documentary, which has been uploaded on video sharing website YouTube by several individuals.

Despite a ban by the government, the BBC aired the documentary in the UK on March 5. The documentary was also to be telecast on Sunday in seven countries, including on NDTV in India.

While the government and the BBC are trying to remove the documentary videos from YouTube, its clips have reached corners of the internet the government would find tough to control.

In an effort to capture some of the conversations regarding the documentary, Hindustan Times asked its readers to share their opinions.
