DU Colleges Have Banned Artists With Sexist Lyrics From Performing At Their Fests

Posted at January 9th, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

Several Delhi University’s women’s colleges have decided that artists that have an incorrigible need to flame disparaging comments towards women will not be banned from performing at their fests. In wake of the incident in Bangalore dubbed as the ‘Night Of Shame’ which ignited a national debate concerning women’s safety in India, the colleges have taken these steps to start heading in said direction.

“What is the point in protesting for women’s rights if we are entertained by songs which say ‘I swear chhoti dress mein bomb lagdi mennu’?” Samridhi Bajaj, general secretary of the students’ union, Miranda House told The Times of India.

We prefer a female artist who believes in ideas like ours and who can understand us better than someone who tears us apart in our own college on our fest. We are taught that women should be confident, competent and compassionate and the lyrics of these artists are completely opposite so they are a big ‘No’ for our fests.” Raavi Jotwaani, VP of Jesus & Mary College student’s union said.
