Jaspal Bhatti's “Nonsense Club” on Tuesday urged the government and the entire nation to declare woman as a commodity.

Staging a protest at the Plaza in Sector 17 against the gruesome molestation of a five-year-old in New Delhi, the club members said this would just be a constitutional formality because Indian women were already being treated like market items.

Savita Bhatti, CEO, Mad Arts Jaspal Bhatti Film School, said, “ By labelling women as market items, it gives the clearance to do anything with her - buy or sell her, trade her, molest her, hurt her. Literally do anything.”

She said the Constitution could incorporate this change and so could the stock market, media and entertainment industry.

“No more campaigns for checking female foeticide, no more hue and cry over the women being treated like an 'item' in the media and entertainment industry, no more protests over vulgarity in films and music videos,” she added.

Club stalwarts Vinod Sharma, Lally Gill and Gurtej Tej were also present on the occasion.
