#BanNetflixInIndia trending on Twitter – Know the reason here!

Team Udayavani, Sep 6, 2019, 12:53 PM IST

#BanNetflixInIndia is trending worldwide with over 34,000 tweets. Netflix in the past few years has released region-specific original content in its streaming platform. Series like Sacred Games, Laila, Ghoul which released specifically catering to the Indian audience have received criticism, both good and bad. But why are these shows embroiled in controversy?

Recently, Ramesh Solanki a member of the Shiv Sena’s IT cell accusing Netflix  of “deep-rooted Hinduphobia” had lodged a police complaint against the online streaming service for “defaming the country” and portraying “an incorrect picture” of India through the shows  like Sacred Games, Leila, Ghoul and the comedy talk show Patriot Act hosted by Hasan Minhaj streamed on its platform.

“I urge the authorities to look into all of the above-mentioned content and take the necessary steps from summoning their team to cancelling their licenses as deemed fit. One cannot allow an incorrect generalisation based on bogus rhetoric trying to defame a religious minority, that is, Hindu in countries other than India,” he said in his complaint.

However, even the Twitterati seemed to be irked with these shows and expressed their displeasure on the social media platform with hashtags like #BanNetflixIndia. Here’s what social media users are saying:
