Dear You Tube
I am deeply saddened at your mindset and your regressive attitude as a You Tuber I follow You Tube guidelines.
I am a Muslim photographer an Indian by birth and my main concern has been promoting Hindu Muslim Amity through my documentation of diverse cultures that unify India a land of peace hope humanity.
I shoot Sufis Shias Naga Sadhus Aghoris Tantrics Hijras but no porn
You removed one one of my videos NagaSadhus Pulling a car with a penis an integral part of NagaSadhu rituals I do not mind the stance you take but to add that as a strike to my profile and character I think is biased and racist on your part..
Please remove my videos if you feel they are not proper as per your Victorian mindset but don't term as pornography it is an insult to my Hindu culture and all that it stands for.
I am deeply hurt and I think your You Tube curator has certainly lost it ask him to see Nat Geo and NagaSadhus and penile yoga and Ling Kriya.
You can age revise such videos but removing them makes me feel you don't really know the ethnicity of a religious Hindu Order who live naked the NagaSadhus of India.
I have shot 4 Kumbh Melas and here it I'd NagaSadhus of the JunaAkhara that attract thousands of photographers film makers from the West so I feel you demean my efforts as a photographer and a man of Peace.
in pain as a You Tube Creator

Hi Firoze Shakir,
As you may know, our Community Guidelines describe which content we allow – and don’t allow – on YouTube. Your video "Ling Kriya Naga Sadhu Pulling the Car With His Penis" was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines. We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.
Video content restrictions
If a video contains nudity, pornography, or other sexually provocative content, it's less likely to be allowed on YouTube. YouTube reviews content on a case by case basis and will make limited exceptions for appropriate educational, documentary, artistic, and scientific contexts. In such cases, we may apply an age restriction so that only viewers over a certain age can view the content. Learn more here.
The impact of strikes
This is the first strike applied to your account. We understand that users seldom intend to violate our policies. That’s why strikes don’t last forever – this strike will expire in three months. However, it’s important to remember that additional strikes could prevent you from posting content to YouTube or even lead to your account being terminated.
How you can respond
If you believe this was a mistake, we’d like to hear from you. Please follow both of these steps as simply deleting the video won’t resolve the strike on your account.
