The second part of a new BBC documentary titled 'India: The Modi Question', aired in the United Kingdom last evening.
The first part of this very documentary had been blocked by India earlier last week using "emergency powers".
A huge controversy had erupted in India over the first episode of this two-part series which tracked PM Narendra Modi's rise through the ranks of the BJP and his appointment as chief minister of Gujarat.
It had also revisited his role in the 2002 Gujarat riot which had broken out after 59 Hindu pilgrims died on a train that was set on fire.
In this video, we explain what were those emergency provisions India had resorted to in order to to block the airing of this documentary and whether this was just a one-off instance or whether there have been precedents to such actions by the government.
But before that, don’t forget to like, share and subscribe to Oneindia.

The first of the three Russian hypersonic missile scientists to be arrested on suspicion of treason will go on trial next week in a case which apparently involves accusations of betraying secrets to foreign adversaries. The criminal case against Anatoly Maslov, 76, will open in Saint Petersburg’s city court on June 1. The St. Petersburg City Court also ruled on May 24 that Maslov's detention would be extended until at least November 10. Soon after his arrest, authorities had flown him to Moscow and put him in pre-trial detention in Lefortovo prison…a former KGB interrogation site where Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich is also being held. The details of the case are classified, but some local media reports cited sources close to scientific circles as saying that the three scholars are suspected of handing information related to their research to China.
