Ban on Bus Advertisements

The Madras (Chennai) High Court recently directed the Tamilnadu Transport department to remove all advertisements from the exteriors of all public and private transport buses in the state within a timeframe. This was in response to a PIL filed which contended that these advts distract vehicle users/drivers and affect the normal transmission of light.

Though the PIL and ruling is in the interest of general public, i have a different take on this. As per the recent study, men spend 1 year of their lifetime ogling at women. It is now evident that we men (ie vehicle users & drivers) tend to look more at beautiful women on the pavements and nearby than the advts on the bus :)

Apropos, will the court now direct all the beautiful women to stay away from road pavements, so that more accidents can be avoided! Another option is, they can be directed to wear burkha when they come out. Also, what about the advertisements which are displayed outside the shops. Vehicle users look at those advts too.

Advts on bus is a revenue generating activity for the cash-starved transport corporations. Rather than banning them outrightly, the court can restrict their over exploitation.

Hello dear friend…
I send you a message, to think about this for a minute…
Thank you !!!!
Liberal democracy is the utmost of aim of species that the U.S claims to have and claims that it has a wholly liberal democratic government. Does the end of the world and history conclude in the U.S? Is everything entirely for the U.S and what kind of Liberal democracy is this that doesn’t even allow anyone to reopen and research about the Holocaust case?! And according to this case and religious lie, every year hundreds of Muslims are sentenced to death. But this so-called liberal government allows any kind of insult to the holy book of Quran. And under the names of liberalism and freedom of speech, and with the aid of its police, offends more than one billion Muslims around the world.
The insult to the holy book of Quran and violating the law of respecting other’s beliefs and rights which was carried out by the same people who claim to have created this law, brought a great grief and sorrow to the liberals of the world. Isn’t this the same government that argues for omanism and all its moral and cultural theories are base on the human being?! So with this claim what happens to the freedom of right of more than one billion Muslims around the world and respecting their beliefs and religion?! Don’t these Muslims have the right to live?!
This is the Book(the Quran), about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah -
