AK Antony Son On BBC Documentary: There is a lot of ruckus about Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BBC documentary made on Gujarat riots. On this matter, BJP has got the support of Anil K Antony, son of Congress leader AK Antony. Anil Antony has said that the sovereignty of the country will be affected by giving importance to the idea of ​​a British broadcaster over Indian institutions.

Anil Antony, son of former Union minister AK Antony, was in charge of the digital communication of the Kerala unit of the Congress till recently. His comments come at a time when different branches of the state Congress have announced that they will screen the controversial documentary on the 2002 Gujarat riots. Narendra Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

What did Anil Antony say?

Anil Antony said on Twitter, "Despite all the differences with the BJP, giving more importance to the views of BBC and former UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw than the views of Indian institutions is a dangerous practice and will affect the sovereignty of the country." Anil Antony also said in the tweet, "BBC is a government sponsored channel and has a history of perceived bias towards India. He also said that Jack Straw was the one who ‘planned the Iraq war’ was made In 2003, the US-led coalition invaded Iraq."

Despite large differences with BJP, I think those in 🇮🇳 placing views of BBC, a 🇬🇧 state sponsored channel with a long history of 🇮🇳 prejudices, and of Jack Straw, the brain behind the Iraq war, over 🇮🇳 institutions is setting a dangerous precedence will undermine our sovereignty.
