Hours after the BBC telecast “India’s Daughter”, a documentary featuring one of the December 16, 2012 gang rape convicts, in Britain, the hash tag #IndiasDaughter became the top global trend on social networking site Twitter on March 5, 2015.
Two other hash tags – #NirbhayaInsulted and #DontRapeAgain were also trending on second and fourth positions respectively.
Earlier, the documentary was uploaded on the video hosting site YouTube, which saw a flurry of shares on the social media, including Facebook and Twitter.
The BBC website said: “BBC iPlayer TV programmes are available to play in Britain only.”
The documentary “India’s daughter” by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin has kicked up a storm over the interview of one of the six men who raped the 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist on December 16, 2012 on board a moving bus in Delhi.
YouTube began blocking access to the controversial BBC documentary on the December 16, 2012 gang rape, citing court orders, while the government served legal notice to the top news channel after it ignored a court’s restraining order and aired the documentary carrying an interview with one of the rape convicts.
