'3 Idiots' glorifies ragging: NGO


“We have written to the R K Raghavan committee about the ragging scene in the film. Raghavan has assured us to take appropriate action,” Harsh Agarwal, head of the Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (CURE), said.

“The recently-released movie ‘3 Idiots’ has a scene on ragging, shown in a lighter sense. This is director Raj Kumar Hirani’s second film, first being ‘Munnabhai MBBS’, where ragging has been used as a theme to make the audience laugh,” Agarwal has written in his complaint.

Agarwal said instead of creating awareness against ragging, “the movie is glorifying it. Treating it as a subject of fun.”

According to a study by CURE, the number of ragging cases reported (from July 2008-June 2009) are 88, number of ragging deaths are 12 and number of attempted suicides (due to ragging) are five.
