A Delhi court on Tuesday instructed police to prevent the broadcast and publication of India's Daughter in India, BBC reported. The filmmakers responded that halting the broadcast of their documentary amounts to a violation of freedom of expression.
In 2012, four men were sentenced to death for the horrific gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old medical intern in Delhi.
The woman boarded a bus with a friend. The four men beat the woman's friend and then each of them raped the woman before they beat her with an iron rod. The driver of the bus was a 20-year-old named Mukesh Singh.
Singh is currently appealing his death sentence. Documentary filmmaker Leslee Udwin conducted 16 hours of interviews with Singh for her film India's Daughter.
While Singh denies that he took part in the assault, he did not show any remorse for what happened. "A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy," Singh told Udwin.
"Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes. About 20% of girls are good," he continued. "When being raped, she shouldn't fight back. She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they'd have dropped her off after 'doing her', and only hit the boy."
