After the broadcast of that documentary, the Center moved with it. On behalf of the government, the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi, said that this documentary was made for propaganda. Transparency, colonialism and one-sidedness are evident in this. The purpose behind it is not understood. There is nothing much to say about this documentary.

After the documentary aired, the Center ordered the removal of the documentary from YouTube and Twitter. Kanchan Gupta, advisor to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, said that the documentary or its clip has been banned on YouTube and Twitter. It has also been said on Twitter that the tweets related to the documentary should be deleted. Those two social media platforms have accepted it.

Trinamool MP Mahua Maitra, journalist N Ram and eminent lawyer Prashant Bhushan filed a case against the Centre’s decision after the documentary was banned on social media. On the other hand, another case was filed by lawyer ML Sharma. In the hearing of that case, the bench of Justice Sanjeev Khanna and Justice MM Sundaresh of the Supreme Court ordered that the original copy of the ban on the documentary should be submitted to the court.

Meanwhile, Hindu Sena president Vishnu Gupta filed a complaint against the BBC documentary. He demanded an investigation against the BBC and its staff. The BBC documentary is biased and is a conspiracy against Narendra Modi and the Government of India. That case was also heard today in the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, pressure was mounting on the BBC over the 2002 Gujarat violence and the documentary on Narendra Modi. A group of Indians living in Britain were protesting against the BBC. In the meantime, British Parliament Foreign Secretary said in a statement that Britain will continue its efforts to improve relations with India.
