Three Indian MPs caught 'watching pornography on smartphone in Parliament'

The Telegraph
February 8, 2012.

Three Indian politicians have resigned after being caught watching pornography on a mobile phone during a session of state parliament.

All three were from a morally conservative party - and one was a women's affairs minister.

News channels broadcast footage showing Karnataka state Minister for Cooperation Laxman Savadi sharing a porn clip with his colleague CC Patil, the minister for women and child development, while sitting in the state assembly.

The owner of the phone, state Minister for Ports, Science and Technology Krishna Palemar, also quit.

"We are requesting the honourable Speaker of the House to conduct an inquiry and we'll come out with a clean chit," Mr Patil said, denying that they were deliberately looking at porn.

The three men said they did not want to cause any embarrassment for their party, the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which rules the state and is in opposition at a national level.

There has been outrage over the incident not just from rights activists and right-wing Hindu groups in conservative India, but also from the riling Congress party which called for the assembly to be dissolved.

"We live in a country where there already is this social mindset that women are disposable commodities and are seen as transferable properties," Renuka Chowdhary, a former federal minister for women's development and a member of the Congress Party.

"It really is troubling that the people who are in positions of power and have the responsibility to change things actually have the same mindset and are busy watching porn," she told the CNN-IBN news channel.

Girls and women in largely patriarchal India face a barrage of threats including rape, dowry-related murder, forced marriage, domestic violence, honour killings and human trafficking.

Comment: Why is it always folks from conservative political parties/religious movements who get caught like this?

Ummm cause other folks of the sane kind mostly don't give a damn what grown folks do with their smartphones.

By the way, did you see the the middle finger salute by artist MIA that found its way into the US Superbowl?

I read some parents were offended by the gesture and NBC offered an apology.  I also read Madonna was upset with MIA.


Why is Madonna still around?  That aside.

Who the f*ck cares about a split second middle finger salute when the president of said country is a f*cking child murderer?

Have any of the same complaining American parents written the Crack House to ask Obomber to stop killing Muslim children at funerals?

Did not think so.  It is all so hypocritical.

Back to the Indian parly dudes.  They should have known better than to watch the nasty in Parliament but who the hell are we kidding?

Show me a man (straight or not) who does not look at naked pictures and I'll sell you my 2012 Chevrolet Camaro for just $2.00 along with my stash of porno magazines from 1975 for an extra dollar.

It really means f*ck all to watch porn when the urge strikes.  The fact that they watched it in Parliament just makes them dumb f*cks.

At the very least they should have waited till they got back to their offices where they most likely have access to a bigger screen for a better view and the option of closing the damn door.  ;0)

I wonder what exactly they were watching?  

Hey Tony ... you know? 

Damn I needs to get my ass a smartphone so I can pass the hours in-between wasting time here.
