BBC documentary on modi: ‘For some, white people are still masters’, says law minister Kiren Rijiju | India News

NEW DELHI: Amid an ongoing controversy over BBC‘s docuseries on Prime Minster Narendra Modi, Union law minister Kiren Rijiju has hit out at those supporting the film which has been banned by the Centre.
“For some people, white people are still the masters,” he said in a tweet posted in Hindi on his official Twitter account on Tuesday.

He added that some people have gone ahead and defied the order of the Supreme Court of India.
In another tweet, on January 21, Rijiju had taken a dig at people living with a colonial mindset in the country.

“They consider BBC above the Supreme Court of India and lower the country’s dignity and image to any extent to please their moral masters,” his tweet read.
Earlier last week, the Centre had issued directions for blocking multiple YouTube videos and Twitter posts sharing links to the controversial documentary.
The two-part BBC documentary, which claims it investigated certain aspects relating to the 2002 Gujarat riots when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the chief minister of the state, has been trashed by the ministry of external affairs as a “propaganda piece” that lacked objectivity and reflected a “colonial mindset”.
