America’s statement has once again come to the fore regarding the BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Actually, the BBC documentary made on PM Modi has been banned in India. US Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Ned Price has said that we fully support media freedom.

He said that it is high time to highlight the importance of democratic principles like freedom of expression and establish it across the world as well as in India. He further said that Washington supports a free press around the world and that it is extremely important to uphold democratic principles such as freedom of expression.

When asked about the ban on the BBC documentary, Ned Price said, “We support the importance of a free press around the world. We support democratic principles such as freedom of expression, freedom of religion or belief.” We highlight the importance of fundamental rights as fundamental rights that help strengthen our democracy. Through this, we have built relationships with the whole world. Somehow because of this, we have been able to build relationships with India as well,” Price said. , “I don’t know the documentary you’re talking about. I am aware of the shared values ​​that underpin the United States and India, two thriving democracies.”

Let us tell you that last week, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, while defending Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said on the controversy over the BBC documentary series that he does not agree with the characterization done about PM Modi in the documentary. . The BBC’s two-part series on PM Narendra Modi’s tenure as Chief Minister of Gujarat (during the 2002 riots) has been embroiled in controversy.

This series has been removed from the social media platform by the Government of India. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs responded to the BBC story, claiming that it was completely biased. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi had said that we think this is propaganda material. There is no objectivity in this. It’s biased. It cannot be screened in India.
