Modi’s Government efforts to ban ‘Lynch Nation’ documentary on Youtube
- Modi’s government has banned the documentary film Lynch Nation.
- BJP’s present Government’s ultra-religious fervor is evident by the number of incidents.
- The documentary is 42 minutes long highlighting the frequent lynching incidents.
Jai Shri Ram is formally the religious slogan of Hindus in the Hindu majority state but this has cost much to the people of other beliefs living in Modi’s India. BJP’s present Government’s ultra-religious fervor is evident by the number of incidents that involve downgraded treatment with minority communities.
Minorities and refugee issue are issues of global concern but when it comes to Modi’s India the former carries the huge weight. A viral video of a young boy who was lynched publicly that made rounds on social media was the worst example of the ultra-religious agenda of Modi.
The boy who was lynched was repeatedly being forced to chant the pro-Hindu slogans loudly while bleeding profusely due to injuries inflicted upon him by the belligerent mob.
According to the report by a local media outlet, the Modi’s Government has banned the documentary film ‘Lynch Nation.’ The documentary film is all about the public lynchings in India.
The documentary is 42 minutes long highlighting the frequent lynching incidents ever since Modi’s coming to power in 2014.
The Print reported that Modi’s Government is considering asking YouTube to take down the trailer of this documentary based on lynchings by cow vigilantes. The trailer of the documentary was released via YouTube by September 2018 and was also made available on a US-based video-sharing platform Vimeo.
Although ‘Lynch Nation,’ has been screened at several locations within India the film-makers claim that all these viewings were private. A film-maker can screen the film for a private audience without certification of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The film has not been released on the theatres but is available on the internet platforms.
