He said that the BBC documentary has been prepared with great care and research, and by banning it, the Modi government has made a fool of itself.

Links to the documentary were posted by prominent individuals such as Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien, Hollywood actor John Cusack and senior advocate Prashant Bhushan, among others. Several media organizations have also condemned the Indian government’s decision to ban a BBC documentary critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The documentary questions Modi’s leadership as chief minister during the 2002 riots in his home state of Gujarat that killed nearly 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, but human rights activists Accordingly, the number of dead people was around 2500.

Amy Brouillette, director of advocacy at the International Press Institute, said the Modi government was clearly abusing emergency powers under IT laws to punish or limit criticism of its policies.
