Recently , there have been many talks about the BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The JNU students were planning to screen a documentary on the PM ” India: The Modi Question “.
The BBC programme on PM Modi has been a topic of conversation in various places. Now the topic has reached to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). The students allegedly planned to screen the film on PM when the university asked them to cancel the screening. The documentary on the PM is in controversies. And the university also stated no prior permission was taken by the students in this regard for the screening. It said,” No prior permission for this event has been taken from the JNU department.”
There was a poster on the university campus. It stated about the screening of the controversial documentary by its students union on Tuesday . This led to the university to issue a warning to cancel that event.
The government has blocked the access to the two part documentary on the Prime Minister Modi. It shows about the certain parts of the Gujarat riots when he was the chief minister of Gujarat . The JNU stated in a statement,” This is to emphasize that such unauthorized activity may disturb the peace and harmony of the university campus . The concerned students are firmly advised to cancel the screening program.”
The University released an advisory ,” It has come to the notice of the administration that a group of students have in the name of the JNUSU released a pamphlet for the screening of the documentary on the Prime Minister.”
The government has directed the social media platforms Twitter and Youtube to block the links for the documentary ” India: The Modi Question” . The ministry has expressed that the documentary is just a ” Propaganda Piece” that lacks objectivity and reflects a colonial mindset.
The opposition party, taking their chance have started to slam the government’s move to block the access to the documentary.
