Doremon, Why So Stupid?

When it comes to the right nurturing and character building of our children, debate of the entertainment content they are exposed to is extremely important. Recent ban on the very popular cartoon Doremon has raised several points of views regarding the cartoon content Pakistani children are watching at their homes these days. Under the chairmanship of PTI, a resolution was passed to convince PEMRA to either ban cartoon channels or limit their airtime to lesser hours a day. Among all the other cartoons, Doremon is at the top of the ban list!

According to the supporters, these cartoons on-aired on cartoon channels are addictive. When children have these cartoons available to them at every hour of the day, they go through their adverse effects. Content of these cartoons is highly inappropriate and so is their language. Due to its exposure, societal norms are being affected.

Doremon is a cartoon about the adventures of a robotic cat and a young boy named Nobita. Other than its English version, its Hindi version is also available for Pakistani audience, which is more disturbing for the children. Due to a bit familiarity with Hindi words, the Hindi version of Doremon is promoting violence and foul language amongst kids. In addition, an entirely different culture is also promoted through the Hindi-dubbed version of Doremon. At an age where children generally are quicker in picking up words as a language and actions as attributes, cartoons like Doremon are making them extremely problematic.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
