The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) recently bleeped out the word "Bombay" from Mihir Joshi's new song "Sorry".

For everyone who was wondering about the censor certificate. Have a look. Just got it from Times Music. #Bombay

Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, along with filmmaker Karan Johar are under fire for "filthy and abusive language" used in the AIB Knockout.

And the reaction from a member of the censor board, Ashoke Pandit, to the content of the Knockout is ironic, to say the least.

Karan Johar could have easily shown his position while performing sex to his mom at home instead of making it public.#AIB Porn Show.

So while we're on the subject of censoring anything and everything that "misleads India's youth", here are a couple of things we'd like to add to the list.

1. Yo Yo Honey Singh as an entity for his misoginistic lyrics.

His songs cover a wide variety of topics from alcoholism to actual rapey behaviour.

2. Bollywood movies like Tum Mere Ho for promoting domestic violence and rape.

3. Bollywood movies like Haseena Maan Jayegi that teach our impressionable youth that no doesn't ever mean no.

In fact, an Indian gentleman in Australia was let off the hook after stalking 2 women because he explained that he learned from Bollywood movies that relentlessly pursuing women was the only way to woo them.

4. Bollywood movies like Dostana that promote gay stereotypes and homophobia.

It's a happy ending when it turns out that your son was only pretending to be gay.

5. Religious leaders like Baba Ramdev who claim, to millions, that homosexuality is a disease that cured by yoga.

We're raising a nation of youths in yoga pants which may be the next reason politicians will blame rape on.

6. Literally ANYTHING Kamaal R. Khan speaks or tweets.

7. Sakshi Maharaj for telling the women of this country what they should be doing with their uteruses.

8. The Times Of India for their crass coverage of women that influences at least 3.3 million Indian citizens.

Imagine 3.3 million Facebook posts pointing out their friends' cleavages.

9. Then Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan who wanted to jeopardise the future of our country's children by banning sex education in schools.

10. Samajwadi Party leader, Mulayam Singh Yadav for normalising rape by saying, "Boys will be boys, they commit mistakes."

Millions of boys will now be boys and commit such mistakes.

11. Another SP leader, Abu Azmi, who says ANYONE having sexual intercourse before marriage should be hanged to death. Even rape victims.

Are you teaching our nation to be unbelievably stupid and ignorant, sir?

12. Ranjit Sinha, head idiot of the Central Bureau of Investigation who told women that if they couldn't prevent rape, maybe they should just shut up and enjoy it.

Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.

13. Lastly, the Censor Board whose priorities are to mislead our country's youth more than anyone else.
