Woman Floats Petition Against ToI To Stop Publishing Graphic Novel With Sexual Content

The graphic novel is a serialised graphic novel presented by The Times of India - Sakshi Post

A woman from Noida has started an online petition against The Times of India asking them not to publish the graphic novel Agent Rana which consists of "explicit content". The petition has been started by Antara Sen Dave on Change.org which is signed by over 19,000 people so far.

Antara, a mother of two young boys, says in her petition, "This is some of sexual content that my son has been exposed to after the Times of India published a graphic novel in its newspaper. Being young they are attracted to pictures and anything that has graphics in them."

The petition further reads, "I am not against creativity or freedom of expression. I truly believe that artistic freedom is important. The creator has all the right to come up with a character who uses her sexuality or uses blunt language. But should adult content like this be published in a newspaper which is easily accessible to children?"

The petition is addressed to ToI Chairman and MD Vineet Jain, Vice-Chairman Samir Jain and Editorial Director Jaideep Bose.
