Netizens demanded Netflix, a digital online streaming platform, be banned in India for airing shows promoting anti Hinduism and anti Indian content.

According to these netizens, the United States (U.S.,) based over the top (OTT) platform airs shows like Ghoul, Sacred Games and Leila, which mislead the audience about Hindus.  Twitteratis further claimed Netflix is ‘Hindu phobic.’

Twitter is flooded with posts making use of #BanNetflixIndia.

 On the 4th of September, Ramesh Solanki, a member of the Information Technology (IT) cell of the Shiv Sena party, filed a complaint against Netflix for airing shows which defame Hinduism in India.

He filed a complaint with the LT Marg Police Station in Mumbai and said, “Almost every series on Netflix India is with the intention to defame 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 specifically mentioned three shows aired on Netflix, Ghoul, Leila and Sacred Games.

Mr. Solanki said, “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 i.e., Hindu in countries other than India.”

He further demanded strict action against the United States (U.S.,) based Netflix for hurting the sentiments of the Hindus and spreading the wrong message.

Apart from the LT Marg Police Station, Devendra Fadnavis, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Sanjay Barve, the Commissioner of Mumbai Police, also have a copy of the registered complaint.

Twitteratis also supported Solanki and flooded Twitter with negative comments against Netflix.
