Feminist Fightback Filmclub presents: The Modi Question- Joint film screening with Peace in India
March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join Peace in India and Feminist Fightback for a screening of the recent BBC documentary, “The Modi Question”, which examines the Indian Prime Minister’s role in deadly sectarian riots in 2002 and the impact of his government’s Hindu supremacist policies on India’s Muslim communities.
Please register via EventBrite for this screening + discussion with activists from India, via Zoom.
The documentary and the Indian Government’s moves to ban it are illustrative examples of the hard right’s transnational reach, and its authoritarianism. The documentary caused uproar in the corporate media in India, was banned on Twitter, and has led the Indian government to raid the BBC India offices. All this, for bringing to international audiences what Indian journalists have known for quite some time, but which a servile corporate media – and ‘friendly’ Western governments – have been all too eager to ignore.
