Delhi: Central Minister Anurag Thakur questions the independence of BBC Journalism
New Delhi: Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur on Saturday questioned the independence of journalism of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The BBC has suspended former football player and popular anchor Gary Lineker for criticizing the UK government’s immigration policies on social media and banned a documentary from airing over “fear of a right-wing backlash”. Responding to this development, Thakur said this. Let us tell you that even before this many reports of BBC have been disputed. Recently there was a controversy over the release of a documentary film in the case of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In which there is an allegation of giving wrong information about Prime Minister Modi.
