Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi waits for the arrival of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi at Hyderabad house, in New Delhi, India, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023. Days after India blocked a BBC documentary that examines Modis role during 2002 anti-Muslim riots and banned people from sharing it online, authorities are scrambling to halt screenings of the film in colleges and universities and restricting its clips on social media, a move that has been decried by critics as an assault on press freedom.
