There have been an exponential rise in the number of people using social medias such as Facebook, twitter, Whatsapp and Youtube. Due to the recent price drop in internet utility by various network providers the number of internet users has enormously increased. This has led to a liberation in publishing contents in social medias too. We can realize the day to day increase in number of youtube channels and publishers. In spite of many videos being released with social concern and making awareness there have been certain trend to create public nuisance in the name of entertainment. One such thing is creating public pranks by a number of television channels and youtube video makers.

Today internet usage and social medias have reached up to children. In that case, it is extremely harmful to admit prank videos that create public disturbance and become a cultural threat. As there is no extreme regulation in publishing of these videos, they have become a source of public nuisance, law and order problem, humiliation of a person or group, threat for child and women safety. They do not seek permission from any authority to shoot a video in public place. They do not seek the permission of the public, participant or personality in the video before recording in their camera, which is ultimately misusing the technology and unacceptable. The cameras are mostly hidden from the preview of the character and this can be misused. We cannot admit people earning out of humiliating somebody in the name of entertainment. They have become a huge threat for privacy and social integrity.

Sometimes they have also become dangerous to disturb law and order as some pranksters hinder people's emotions. In some cases they become a source to involve in dangerous filming, unsafe tasks which can lead to severe injury and damage to life.

Hence we plead before you to take immediate and necessary steps to ban making, broadcasting, circulating and uploading any kinds of prank shows in televisions and social media. Kindly create a regulation to ensure it does not happen anymore. We also request to take severe action by booking such persons in the law of public nuisance, harassment and humiliation. Thank You!
