The Indian Stammering Association is protesting a new Bombay-produced movie, called "Golmaal 3". The movie features a person who stammers/stutters as an object of ridicule. According to Dr Satyendra Srivastava, the Coordinator of the ISA,
The movie repeatedly makes fun of people who stammer, and by doing so, humiliates them, and portrays a disability in a negative light, in the name of cheap humor. It promotes the stereotype that persons who stammer are mentally deficient and are incompetent.
Please read the full statement and sign the petition to help the Indian Stammering Association have the certification for this movie rescinded.
