New Delhi: The Supreme Court dismissed the plea filed by the BBC seeking a ban on the documentary on Prime Minister Modi.
The Center has banned a BBC documentary against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Subsequently, its leader Vishnu Gupta filed a case in the Supreme Court on behalf of the Hindu Sena organization.
In his petition, he said, “BBC is continuously working against India and against the Government of India. So, BBC should be banned. He also demanded that an inquiry should be ordered against the company and its employees for publishing news against India and the Government of India.
The petition came up for hearing before a bench comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and MM Sundaresh of the Supreme Court. At that time, senior lawyer Pinky Anand, who appeared on behalf of Vishnu Gupta, said, “The documentary ‘India: Questions for Modi’ produced by BBC has been banned for the purpose of propaganda against India.
Now the country is progressing. The country’s economy is growing. In the current climate, the BBC is working against the country. The function of the BBC is objective. Against India.
The international media, especially the BBC, which cannot accept India’s development, has been publishing news with a bias against India. Therefore, the BBC should be banned from operating in India,” he argued. After hearing his argument, the judges dismissed the case saying it was not fit for trial.
