Jamia PM Modi

Jamia is in limelight due to BBC documentary on PM Modi. After the incident of stone pelting while watching the controversial documentary in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), discussions are now taking place in Jamia Millia Islamia University regarding this documentary. According to reports, the students of Jamia have decided to screen the controversial film.

In fact, a day after the uproar in JNU, Jamia students will be screening the BBC series on PM Modi today. According to a report, students of Jamia Millia Islamia University are planning to screen the controversial BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at 6 pm today.

Significantly, the BBC’s plan to screen the documentary ‘India: The Modi Question’ on the Gujarat riots when Narendra Modi was the chief minister is likely to stir controversy. Although the university administration issued a notice asking students to refrain from screening the BBC documentary, there have been reports of preparations for the screening of the film.

On Tuesday, students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students’ union were holding a screening of the controversial BBC documentary on PM Modi. The administration reportedly cut off electricity and internet to stop the screening of the film. Later, the students protested and claimed that they were attacked when they were watching the documentary on their mobile phones as the screening could not take place.

Some students alleged that the attackers were members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). The ABVP, a student organization affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, has rejected the allegations. According to reports late on Tuesday night, students raised slogans of “Inquilab Zindabad” against the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration. The protesting students marched to the Vasant Kunj police station to lodge a complaint against the “stone-pelters”.

On the power cut on the campus, an official of the JNU administration, requesting anonymity, told news agency PTI, “There is a major (power) line fault in the university. We are looking into it. The engineering department is saying that the problem Will be resolved as soon as possible.”

Let us tell you that earlier on January 21, a group of students at the University of Hyderabad organized a screening of the BBC documentary at their North Campus without any prior notice. On receiving the information, the security team and the dean reached the venue of the student welfare program and requested the organizers to stop the screening of the documentary. However, the organizers did not accede to the request and continued with the screening of the documentary in the presence of some students.

According to reports, the BBC’s two-part documentary “India: The Modi Question” claimed to have explored some aspects of the 2002 Gujarat riots. Modi was the Chief Minister of the state at the time of the riots. The documentary has not been screened in India due to the ban. The government on Friday directed social media platforms Twitter and YouTube to block links to the documentary titled ‘India: The Modi Question’. The Ministry of External Affairs has dismissed the documentary as a “propaganda piece”. The government says that it lacks objectivity. This reflects the colonial mindset.
