BBC Film Row: The Central Government has banned the BBC documentary India – The Modi Question. This documentary has been banned on YouTube. But the Communist Party and the youth wing of the Congress have opposed it. The youth wing of Congress and CPI held special screenings of the documentary at several places in Kerala. Its special screening was held at Poojappura in Thiruvananthapuram. But BJP workers opposed it and ransacked the venue where the screening of this documentary was held. BJP workers also clashed with the police. Many BJP workers have also been hurt.

The CPI’s student wing SFI screened the documentary on campuses, universities in Palakkad, Kozhikode, Kalpetta, while the BJP Yuva Morcha protested the screening. The way the youth wing announced a special screening of the documentary, state BJP president K Surendra appealed to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to intervene and stop the screening. But the state Congress and the CPIM have supported the screening.

CPIM state secretary MV Govindan said that the ban on the documentary is undemocratic. Ideas should not be stopped in a democratic society. If there is a ban on ideas, then there will be only one type of people’s thinking. There should be a massive protest against the banning of the documentary. Senior Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala said that by banning the documentary, freedom of expression has been attacked.

Union Minister and BJP leader V Muraleedharan said that the screening of the documentary should not be allowed in Kerala. This is an anti-national move and the Chief Minister should intervene to stop this screening. Earlier on Tuesday, Anil, son of former Union Minister AK Antony, had said that the BBC documentary should not be shown, it is a challenge to the sovereignty of the country. Anil Antony said that despite having differences with the BJP, I feel that the BBC has the support of the British government, which is prejudiced against India.
