Hyderabad University Students Screen PM Modi’s BBC Documentary

Guwahati: A group of students at Hyderabad Central University (HCU) organised a screening of a BBC documentary about Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the university’s campus on Monday.

In the Hyderabad Central University, the Student Islamic Organization (SIO) and Muslim Student Federation also known as the Fraternity group organised a BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The screening was seen by more than 50 students from these groups.

ABVP student leader Mahesh said, “We have escalated the matter to University Authorities and demanded action on the organisers. The group has organised screening without permission inside the campus premises.”

Police said, “We have received the information that some students organised screening inside the campus but haven’t received any written complaint. If we receive a complaint investigation will be taken up.”

India criticised the divisive BBC documentary series on Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier last week calling it a “propaganda work” meant to forward a discredited thesis.

“We think this is a propaganda piece designed to push a particular discredited narrative. The bias, lack of objectivity, and frankly continuing colonial mindset are blatantly visible,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said during a weekly media briefing.

The MEA spokeswoman continued by saying that those peddling this story once more are reflected in the documentary.

More than 300 distinguished Indians, including retired judges, government officials and veterans of the armed forces, signed a declaration criticising the British national broadcaster for its “unrelenting hostility” toward India and its leader in response to the BBC documentary.
