BBC Docu: We cannot allow such a screening, have written to Delhi Police regarding this; DU
The Delhi university administration has stated that they won’t allow the screening of BBC Documentary. The university’s proctor Rajni Abbi said the administration’s permission had not been sought. The statement came out on Friday.
“We have written to Delhi Police regarding this. They will take action. Proper police deployment would be done. We cannot allow such a screening,” PTI quoted Abbi as saying.
“We have received information that NSUI is planning to screen this documentary at the Arts faculty… No permission has been sought for it. We will not allow such behaviour,” she said, adding that the film had been banned by the government.
The central ministry has banned the documentary and assisted social media platforms to block all of the links to the documentary.
Also, the External affairs ministry thrashed the documentary saying, it is a “propaganda piece” that lacks objectivity and reflects a colonial mindset.
The BBC documentary on Narendra Modi talks about his role in Gujrat Riots in 2002.
