BBC Row: 302 eminent citizens write open letter | Details

Anger against the BBC mounts over its controversial documentary of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Retired judges, bureaucrats and retired armed forces veterans have signed a statement rebutting the BBC documentary. A total of 302 eminent citizens have written a letter saying that the BBC documentary is based on delusional and evident lopsided reporting. The BBC however has defended its documentary saying that it was rigorously researched according to the highest editorial standards. BBC added that it has featured a range of opinions, including responses from people in the BJP. Government has condemned the documentary as a 'propaganda piece' lacking objectivity. The two-part documentary looks into the 2002 Gujarat riots and then Chief Minister Narendra Modi's relationship with minorities.
