Channel suspended for vulgar program

The Indian government has suspended US entertainment channel Comedy Central for airing obscene and vulgar programs. The channel has been suspended for six days for showing woman as commodity of sex in two very popular shows. This is not the first time the channel faced such issue, in May 2013, then government banned Comedy Central for three days citing similar reasons.

This is also not the first time that Indian government took action against channel that show vulgar content. In 2010 Fashion TV (FTV) was blocked for 10 days for showing topless models during a show. In 2007, the same channel was suspended for two months for showing skimpily-clad models in a show called Midnight Hot.
