#BanNetflixInIndia is trending on Twitter with over 32 thousand tweets on the hashtag. OTT giant Netflix is being accused of promoting anti-Hindu and anti-India content on its platform

The trend has garnered support from the users online. People supporting this trend suggest that Netflix, through its content has been trying to defame the name of the Hindu religion and also the country.


On 4th September, Ramesh Solanki, a member of Shiv Sena IT cell had filed a police complaint against Netflix for defaming Hindus and India globally. Solanki in his complaint had accused that shows like Sacred Games, Leila, Ghoul, and acts of Comedian Hasan Minhaj on Netflix have hurt sentiments of Hindus hence he seeks a complete ban on the OTT giant.

Earlier, Delhi BJP MLA from Rajouri Garden had slammed the makers of Sacred Games 2 for hurting his religious sentiment. Sirsa was referring to a scene from the web series on Netflix, where the character of Sartaj Singh played by Saif Ali Khan throws away his Kada. Sirsa had Tweeted 'I wonder why Bollywood continues to disrespect our religious symbols! Anurag Kashyap deliberatly puts this scene in #SacredGamesS2 where Saif Ali Khan throws his Kada in sea! A KADA is not an ordinary ornament. It’s the pride of Sikhs & a blessing of Guru Sahib @NetflixIndia @ANI'
