Recently, it was reported all over the media that one of the members of Shivsena had registered a complaint against Netflix. It is due to the anti-Hindu content that some of its shows like Leila and Sacred Games contain.
Within days, the official communiqué of Shiv Sena has issued a clarification. It has officially put a statement that no one from its party had failed a complaint. It is false information, and people should not be misled, it read.
While it can now be agreed that Shiv Sena has put themselves aside, the real issue is that a section has actually taken offence to the content in those shows from Netflix. It might not be Shivasena, but a complaint has been filed. The Ministry of Information and Broadcast is going to conduct a meeting.
The decision, to Censor the content on OTT platforms, is taken due to multiple issues raised during various occasions. However, it is the anti-Hindu aspect that has caught the most attention. We still have to wait for the meeting to happen between the Ministry and various stakeholders, to come to a conclusion.
