Madhya Pradesh Nursing Association did not observe the International Nursing Day in protest against their “objectionable and obscene” depiction in recently released Bollywood film ‘Mastram’ and demanded its ban in the state.
The nurses staged a silent protest and demanded ban on the film in the state.
“The depiction of the story of a woman nurse’s ‘suhag raat’ (first night after marriage) at hospital is presented in very obscene and objectionable manner in the film. This depiction is damaging to the reputation of this profession,” said Madhya Pradesh Nursing Association’s (MPNA) Indore unit president, Ramesh Jaat.
He said that nearly 700 members of MPNA decided against observing the International Nursing Day in protest.
