Centre Blocks BBC Documentary Critical Of PM Modi

The Modi government has ordered Twitter and YouTube to take down links to a BBC documentary on the 2002 Gujarat riots and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Tweets and YouTube videos of the documentary titled "India: The Modi Question" no longer appear on microblogging and video-sharing websites.

The Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry told the two social media giants to block the first episode of the BBC documentary, people familiar with the matter said, a day after British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak distanced himself from the documentary series, saying he "doesn't agree with the characterisation" of his Indian counterpart in the UK's parliament by Pakistan-origin MP Imran Hussain.

Many intellectuals have condemned the attempt to malign an elected leader of the world's largest democracy.
