BBC's Modi documentary screened at Hyderabad university; 'no permission' says admin, as ABVP complains

The two-part BBC documentary claims investigation of certain aspects relating to the 2002 Gujarat riots when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the chief minister of the state.

Amid a raging controversy over UK broadcaster BBC's documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the show was screened at the University of Hyderabad by a group of students.

Varsity officials said on 24 January 2023 that the students did not take permission before screening the documentary, and the issue came to light after members of RSS' student wing ABVP complained, as per the news agency PTI. The documentary was screened on 22 January by a group of students under the banner 'Fraternity Movement- HCU unit'.

Hyderabad police said that no complaint has been filed so far.

On 23 January, the administration of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi told students to cancel plans of screening the documentary on campus.

The Centre had issued directions for blocking multiple YouTube videos and Twitter posts sharing links to the controversial BBC documentary "India: The Modi Question".

The two-part BBC documentary, which claims it investigated certain aspects relating to the 2002 Gujarat riots when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the chief minister of the state, has been trashed by the Ministry of External Affairs as a "propaganda piece" that lacked objectivity and reflected a "colonial mindset".
