In the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) of the Indian capital, New Delhi, there was a commotion over the exhibition of a documentary on Narendra Modi by a British broadcaster and students who watched the documentary were also pelted with stones.

Despite being stopped by the Jawaharlal Nehru University administration, the students’ union decided to screen a documentary on Narendra Modi’s role in the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Right on time, the administration cut off the electricity and suspended the internet service, on which the students’ union shared the link of the documentary on social media and a large number of students watched it together on their phones.

Meanwhile, the student wing of the extremist Hindu party Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) also pelted stones on the students watching the documentary.

JNU Students Union President Ayesha Ghosh said that you can shut down one screen but you cannot stop thousands of people from rising.

It should be noted that the British Broadcasting Corporation’s documentary questioned Modi’s role in the 2002 Gujarat riots, in which more than a thousand people were killed, most of whom were Muslims.

The documentary has been banned by the Indian government as propaganda and has been blocked on the internet on the orders of the Ministry of Information.
