Good films banned why??

I quote wikipedia here on freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech is the concept of the inherent
human right to voice one's opinion publicly without fear of censorship or punishment. The right is enshrined in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and is granted formal recognition by the laws of most nations.
Indian constitution has enshrined in its fundamental rights the right of freedom of speech.
Every now or when the authorities in power decide what is good or bad for the societies.This is a pretty gray area which is subject to ones education status, social upbringing, religion and region.
Whats fairly common for a region is unthinkable for another,but as the torch bearers of democracy its the duty of the government to encourage the freedom of expression and not act as a despot trying to hide truth from public eye.
We the people are liable to get curbs on every sphere of our life if we do not voice our outright rejection of so called banning of Good films like Parzania and Black Friday.
These bold and brilliant film makers are the brave face of indian cinema unlike the general melodramatic and glossy dance and romance making mainstream.They take huge personal and proffesional risk by venturing out of the streaked pathway of raunchy Bombayiya cinema, but when its time to show there labour of love, the authorities decide its not fit to be shown as, we the indian audiance is not mature enough!!

They are right in saying so as we only selected them and if we were mature enough they would not be ruling us in the first place!!
Jokes apart i ask the fellow bloggers to voice there opinion on this high handedness of respective state governments.

Your copncern is understandable, but remember that "Truth is always bitter" and is not easily palatable. Therefore in the wider interest it is logical to see that such things are not shown as pure "naked truth" which otherwise may cause more unrest and a further rift amongst the aggrieved parties
