Union Minister Arjun Munda attacked AIMIM chairman Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday over the British Broadcasting Corporation’s (BBC) documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he should respect the Supreme Court, which cleared the then Gujarat Chief Minister.

Owaisi questioned PM Modi’s decision to stop the BBC documentary about the 2002 Gujarat riots, and whether he would also block the impending film about Godse, who killed MK Gandhi.

“Modi government has banned BBC interviews on Twitter and YouTube in India. We ask PM Modi whether someone from outside the earth or from the sky killed the people in the Gujarat riots?” he said.

Slamming Owaisi’s statement on PM Modi regarding the documentary, Munda said, “The country is growing under the leadership of PM Modi. But it is sad to see that people pelt more stones at the tree which bears more fruits. The country is in a stable condition and is moving forward just because of our Prime Minister.”

Citing the Supreme Court judgement on the Gujarat riots, the Minister said that the decision of the top court should be accepted by all.

“In many cases, the Supreme Court has made it clear, taking into account all the factors in its decision, it has explained what kind of people were responsible for the Gujarat riots. The Supreme Court has also clearly stated those who are innocent. What the Supreme Court has said should be respected because all things that happen in this country, the courts interpret them and give justice,” Munda said.
