Khan told reporters here that he was surprised that people were giving more importance to the opinion of a foreign documentary maker, “that too our colonial ruler”, than the decision of the country’s top court.

Thiruvananthapuram. Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan on Wednesday questioned the release of the controversial British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) documentary ‘Idea: The Modi Question’ at a time when India has assumed the presidency of the G20. Khan told reporters here that he was surprised that people were giving more importance to the opinion of a foreign documentary maker, “that too our colonial ruler”, than the decision of the country’s top court.

“So many judicial decisions, including the decision of the top court of this land, at the time (of the documentary), all these things have to be kept in mind. This is a time when India has assumed the presidency of the G20.” The governor said, “Why was this particular time chosen to bring out this false material? You can’t ignore these things, especially when it comes from a source that has ruled us for over 200 years.
