Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju on Tuesday made a scathing attack on a BBC documentary about Prime Minister Narendra Modi that has sparked controversy since its release, saying that some people have still not recovered from their “colonial intoxication” and that for them “whites” are still their “rulers”.

“For some people, the white rulers are still the masters whose decision on India is final and not the decision of the Supreme Court of India or the will of the people of India,” Rijiju tweeted in Hindi, tagging his earlier tweet about the minority in the country, which he claimed was moving forward with positivity.

Two days ago, Rijiju also said, “Some people in India are still not over the colonial intoxication. They consider BBC over the Supreme Court of India and lower the dignity and image of the country to some degree to please their moral masters. ”

Rijiju commented in response to an op-ed by a national daily newspaper saying, “Minorities, or for that matter, every community in India is moving forward positively. India’s image cannot be disgraced by malicious campaigns launched inside or outside India. launched. PM @narendramodi Ji’s voice is the voice of 1.4 billion Indians.”

Last week, India denounced the controversial BBC documentary series on Prime Minister Modi, describing it as a “propaganda piece” designed to promote a discredited narrative. “We think this is a propaganda piece designed to push a certain discredited narrative. The bias, lack of objectivity and frankly persistent colonial mindset are blatantly evident,” said Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi of Foreign Affairs, during a weekly media briefing on January 19.

The MEA spokesperson added that the documentary is a reflection of individuals re-enacting this story.
