Censorship is a hindrance to education. Discuss.

Censorship is a broad term. It not only means the censoring of the movies but also that of all kinds of media which can communicate information to people. Such media would include the radio, television, books, magazines, newspapers, journals and so on. All these media can be censored if the government desires to do so. Censoring means hiding some information either by removing it, changing it with a falsified story, or by using some other way that puts people in the darkness about the event concerned.
