Russia accuses BBC over PM Modi's documentary |  Sangbad Pratidin

Daily digital news desk: Russia supported India with the BBC documentary on Modi. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman accused the BBC of engaging in an information war to serve its own interests. He alleged: “He is trying to create an information war between different forces. This is proof of that.”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said: “The BBC is trying to create an information war between different powers. This (documentary made about Modi) is proof of that. I will try to attract everyone’s attention.” Not only that, the Russian spokesman also complained, “BBC is doing the same not only against Russia, but against many powers in the world.” The ANI news agency quoted Maria Zakharova as saying: “After several years, it can be seen that the BBC will work for a special organization with special interests inside Britain. So the corresponding measures are taken from now on.”

By the way, opposition to the BBC documentary India: The Modi Question has started in Britain. Supposedly, its two episodes showed multiple facts against the Indian prime minister. There have also been demands for an independent inquiry against the BBC. The online petition read: “Strongly condemning the BBC. They have not been able to maintain neutrality while making the documentary series. Let the BBC board investigate why the BBC did not play its impartial role.” They have also demanded to release the full report of the investigation.

The central government has banned the showing of BBC documentaries in the country. In this context, the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Arindam Bagchi, said that the series was “biased” and showed a lack of objectivity and a colonial mentality. Along with that, he informed that this series will not be shown in India.
