Attempt to show documentary by communist student organization when documentary is banned !
New Delhi : Controversy arose over the screening of a BBC News documentary on the 2002 Gujarat riots and the involvement of then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) here. The ‘JNU’ student’s union with communist mindset had planned to screen a documentary on January 24 at 9 pm; But they could not screen it due to opposition. Interestingly, when the central government has banned this documentary in India, still it was to be shown here.

JNU Students’ Union alleged that the JNU administration had cut off the power supply and internet in the university to prevent the screening of the documentary. Then there was an argument between the students who opposed the documentary and the students who supported it. They claimed that members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) threw stones at students who had come to watch the series.
The government should ban such anti-Hindu communist student’s union ! – Editor
