Madras Univ disallows screening of BBC documentary, students watch on laptops

An argument ensued between the students and authorities of the University of Madras on Friday as the latter did not grant permission to the former to screen the banned BBC documentary ‘India: The Modi question’, on the campus premises.

The Student Federation of India (SFI) Madras university wing had planned to screen the documentary but was interrupted by university officials who told them to leave the campus.

“This is a democratic country. Why can’t we watch the documentary? It’s just a movie,” one of the students is heard arguing with a university official.

Vice e-chancellor S Gowri said that the university granted no permission. As a result, students started watching the documentary on their laptops.
