“They’re after Modi since 2002; Modi Ji comes out stronger & more popular”: Amit Shah on BBC Docu
After the massive row around the recently released BBC documentary, there have been restrictions imposed on the documentary by the government. Students demanded to watch the documentary but instructions were given by the government to block all of the legal and illegal links to the documentary.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) documentary, chronicles events that occurred during the 2002 Gujarat riots. At that time Narendra Modi was the state chief minister. The Modi government cracked down on the documentary ‘India: The Modi Question’, ordering social media platforms Twitter and YouTube to delete tweets and videos sharing the film. The government describes the documentary as a ‘propaganda piece’.
“The truth emerges despite a thousand conspiracies around it. They are after Modi since 2002. But every time, Modi Ji comes out stronger & more popular”, Shah said in an interview with the news agency ANI.
The opposition had slammed the Centre’s move, calling it censorship. Congress MP Rahul Gandhi defended the documentary, saying, “Truth shines bright. It has a nasty habit of coming out. So no amount of banning, oppression, and frightening people are going to stop the truth from coming out.”
