Police Complaint Filed Against Netflix For 'Defaming' Hindus And India

A police complaint has been filed against Netflix alleging that the US-based online streaming service is "defaming Hindus and India" through shows hosted on its platform.

The complaint filed by Ramesh Solanki, a member of Shiv Sena IT Cell cites examples of series like 'Sacred Games', 'Laila' and 'Ghoul', along with shows of standup comedian Hasan Minhaj to accuse Netflix of trying to "paint an incorrect picture of Hindus and India globally."

"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," states the complaint filed at Mumbai's LT Marg police station.

Solanki has urged the authorities to look into the content of the mentioned series and to take necessary steps by summoning their team or 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," Solanki said further urging the police to "take necessary legal action" against Netflix for "hurting Hindu sentiments."

A copy of the complaint has also been sent to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Mumbai Commissioner of Police.
