WB Govt Program has resulted in more than 10 lakh Cataract Operations: Mamata
The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) admin on Monday canceled the screening of the controversial BBC Documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The admin said it might "disturb peace" and harmony on the campus. The screening was said to be organized by Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU).
"It has come to the notice of the administration that a group of students has in the name of JNUSU released a pamphlet for screening a documentary "India: The Modi Question" scheduled for 24th January 2023 at 9:00 pm in Teflas. No prior permission for this event has been taken from the JNU Administration. This is to emphasize that such an unauthorized activity may disturb peace and harmony of the University Campus," read the advisory issued by the admin.
"The concerned students or individuals are firmly advised to cancel the proposed program immediately, failing which strict disciplinary action may be initiated as per the University rules," it read. The BBC documentary titled "India: The Modi Question", shows the aftermath of the 2002 Gujarat riots and questions Prime Minister Narendra Modi's handling of the riots as the chief minister of the state.
Meanwhile, the government called the documentary a “propaganda piece” and reportedly issued directions for blocking multiple YouTube videos and Twitter posts sharing links to the documentary.
