There is increased concern in the government as well as the human rights activist groups, those involved in child psychiatry and medicine pertaining to the field of violence and the effect that it has on the people.
The TV based media is most criticized for promoting violence in homes as it is easily accessible by families and the source of violence for majority of the children and adolescents. Gang based television programs, and action movies all are attributed to increasing violence in homes and increasing aggressive behaviour amongst the new generation. The changing in technology has enabled other forms of media to contribute to violent activity in children and adolescents as well. These medium include video TV, Video Games, Movies, Japanese/ Chinese animations as well as new gaming devices like Xbox 360 and PlayStation. Moreover the news channels on TV also explicitly depict violence therefore increasing the total exposure of media violence on the children and the adolescent population.
