Complaint filed against Netflix for alleged anti-Hindu and anti-India content on its platform

Solanki requested the authorities to look into the matter and take appropriate action against Netflix

Ramesh Solanki, a member of Shiv Sena’s IT Cell, has filed a complaint against Netflix with Mumbai police for allegedly defaming Hindus and India. The complaint accuses the global streaming site of painting an “inaccurate picture of Hindus and India globally”.

The complaint further says that almost “every series on Netflix India is with the intention of defaming the country on a global level. It is with deep rooted Hinduphobia that the platform is portraying the nation in a bad light.”

The complaint cites Sacred Games and Leila as two series on the platform which paints an inaccurate portrait of Hindus and India. Apart from them, the complaint also mentions comedian Hasan Minaj and the series Ghoul.

The complaint objects to the Sacred Games’ portrayal of the sacred chant ‘Aham Brahmasmi’ in a negative light which suggests that it “radicalizes people to indulge in war against humanity.” Leila depicts a dystopian future where fascist Hindus have taken over the country. In this dystopian future, where the country is called Aryavart, people from lower castes and Muslims are oppressed and persecuted by a Saffron regime.

The complaint accuses Minaj of peddling false propaganda against the abrogation of Article 370. It says, “The artist and all his content, including anti-India material is still hosted on the platform.” Ghoul is a horror series that depicts a dystopian future where Muslims are persecuted by a fascist Hindu state where the Indian Army is shown carrying out the evil designs of the regime.

Solanki requested the authorities to look into the matter and take appropriate action against Netflix. The US digital streaming platform has been on troubled waters ever since the release of the second season of Sacred Games. BJP Delhi spokesperson, Tajinder Bagga, too, had filed a complaint against Anurag Kashyap, the director of Sacred Games, for allegedly hurting religious sentiments.
