BBC Documentary on 2002 Gujarat Riots:-
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) released a two-part documentary depicting the 2002 Gujarat Riots based on an internal report of the United Kingdom. However, on 19th January 2023 (Thursday), the Ministry of External Affairs of India voiced its dissent against the BBC documentary on grounds of biased social and political depiction of the situation. BBC Documentary on 2002 Gujarat Riots BBC Documentary on 2002 Gujarat Riots-BBC Documentary on 2002 Gujarat Riots Critical Opinion of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi, the spokesperson on behalf of the Ministry, commented on the BBC Documentary by saying, “We think it is a propaganda piece designed to push a particular discredited narrative. The bias, lack of objectivity and continuing colonial mindset are blatantly visible.” The BBC Documentary included some remarks by Mr. Jack Straw, the former Secretary of the UK in which he said that Britain had conducted a detailed “investigation and inquiry” into the 2002 Gujarat Riots. Mr. Bagchi pointed out these remarks in the BBC Documentary by saying that the UK was not the ruling government of Gujarat in 2002 and it did not have the authority to conduct any such investigation. Hence, the fact being expressed in the BBC documentary that an investigation was conducted by the UK into the 2002 Gujarat riots is coloured with a colonial mindset according to Mr. Bagchi. It has also discredited the actions of the former Gujarat government led by Narendra Modi as the CM.

British PM Rishi Sunak has denied these allegations and said that no such portrayal of the 2002 Gujarat riots was intended by the BBC.
