Letter: IAMC calls on Elon Musk to stop censorship of BBC documentary on PM Narendra Modi’s role in Gujarat pogrom

Washington D.C. (January 30, 2023) – The Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), a Washington DC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to social justice, peace, and pluralism, today sent a letter to Twitter CEO Elon Musk, demanding that he reverse Twitter’s censorship of the Modi-critical BBC Documentary, “India: The Modi Question” and refuse to comply with future censorship requests from the Indian Government.

“India: The Modi Question”, publicizes well-documented evidence of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s complicity in the massacre of over 2,000 Muslims in 2002 while serving as chief minister of Gujarat state. As Modi and the Indian government continue to pursue anti-Muslim policies, it is of grave concern that Twitter has furthered the Indian Government’s domestic censorship campaign — which this week included detaining students attempting to screen the film — and extended it to international audiences.
