Case against Kerala journal Grihalakshmi for featuring breastfeeding model on cover

Mumbai: A Kerala based advocate has filed a case against Malayalam magazine Grihalakshmi on Friday, a week after the publication featured actress and writer Gilu Joseph breastfeeding a child on the cover of its latest edition.

The criminal complaint has been filed in the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kollam, by Advocate Vinod Mathew Wilson.

The cover image with the caption- “Mothers tell Kerala: Don’t stare, we want to breastfeed” has caused an uproar on social media last week.

It is being alleged that the picture is of a lewd nature and degrades women. The complaint thus alleges commission of offences punishable under Sections 3 and 4 of the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986.

This is in sharp contrast to the praises that have been pouring in on social media with some even terming it to be a moment of historical nature.
