Indian government bans BBC documentary on Modi from using it

The  government of India has asked to Indian satellites and private channels against broadcasting and distributing a recent BBC documentary projecting Prime Minister Narerndra Modi as a party in the riots that saw killing of many Muslims in Gujarat during his first tenure as the Chief Minister.

The Information and Broadcasting secretary has issued the advisory under sovereign law and rule of India, Kanchan Gupta, a senior adviser to the Ministry of information and broadcasting, said in his tweet.

The 59-minute documentary has been removed from the YouTube, twitter and other social media after the government of India asked them to remove it.

The issue figured in British parliament but PM Rishi Sanuk said the government of Britain did not share the view of the foreign and common wealth ministry on Modi regarding his alleged role in the Gujarat riot.
