Panaji: Hindu Jan­ja­gruti Samiti ( HJS), a rightwing Hindu group, on Mon­day de­manded a ban on the re­al­ity TV show MTV Splitsvill­a, claim­ing “it erodes cul­ture and moral­ity”. The or­gan­i­sa­tion also de­mands cen­sor­ship of TV shows on the whole. “The im­pact of such re­al­ity shows is so much that it erodes cul­ture and moral­ity in the youth which are the fu­ture re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zens of this coun­try,” HJS spokesman Ramesh Shinde said in a press re­lease.
