No proposal to ban condom advertisements during day, says I&B Ministry
The clarification came days after the I&B Ministry had called a meeting to discuss proposals that said condom advertisements should be shown between 11 PM to 5 AM.

New Delhi: The Information and Broadcasting Ministry on Tuesday clarified that there is no proposal to ban condom advertisements during day.

The clarification came days after the I&B Ministry had called a meeting to discuss proposals that said condom advertisements should be shown between 11 PM to 5 AM.

In September, Left leader Atul Kumar Anjan made a shocking and irresponsible statement claiming that actor Sunny Leone's condom advertisements promote rapes in the country. He had demanded a ban on condom advertisements featruring the actress.

"There is a woman Sunny Leone. She has worked in many nude films. There is an ad - she's lying down and one man is coming to her. It's a condom ad. If they are shown everywhere on TV and newspapers, rape incidents will increase," Communist Party of India leader Atul Kumar Anjan had said.

He added that "these ads develop sexuality and destroys sensibility."
