The BBC documentary controversy continues to heat up, now there has been stone throwing at the JNU campus located in Delhi regarding the documentary. Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students had announced the screening of a BBC documentary about Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, 24 January, but before the screening, the electricity was cut at the student union office, and there were reports of stone-throwing too. There has been a hurling of stones between the ABVP and Leftwing students.
The BBC documentary series ‘India: The Modi Question’ is based on the Gujarat riots when Narendra Modi was the chief minister of the state.
JNU administration does not allow playback
The screening of the documentary was scheduled to begin at 9 pm and the students planned to continue despite the administration’s disapproval, with the JNU administration not allowing the screening.
Thi also said that disciplinary action would be taken after the screening of the documentary. The students insisted that the screening would not violate university norms and would not disturb communal harmony.
The ABVP could have written a letter of condemnation
The president of the student union said that the ABVP could write letters of condemnation, but not work under orders from the campus union. We don’t care about BJP, ABVP has tweeted why they are not arrested, they have no shame, their (BJP) chief minister is accused of sexual harassment, international wrestlers are sitting on dharna.
