Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his 99-year-old mother Hiraben were abused during a radio programme conducted by BBC Asian Network.
BBC conducted a 3-hour long show on whether the Sikh community in the United Kingdom felt proud of such a reference. The host took several phone calls from the viewers, who expressed the struggle of the Sikhs in the country.
A caller named Simon, joined the programme and abused PM Modi and his aged mother. On being asked a question by the BBC host, the man abused, “Modi di maa di p*udi vich latt.” To which the host disconnected the call and said, “Okay hang on, take a second here. Simon, thank you very much for calling…”

Prime Minister Modi Ji and his Mother were abused live on air on BBC. BBC Radio aired it shamelessly.
This is a very derogatory and shameful thing on BBC’s part.
BBC should come forward and apologise for it.#BoycottBBC pic.twitter.com/zJNW4AL8uj

Freedom of expression is –
Speaking for the betterment of the country and your legit rights.
Not just targeting the Prime Minister and his family and using abusing language.
