London: In the UK Parliament this week, British MP Bob Blackman expressed dissatisfaction with the BBC's coverage of the Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya on January 22, alleging a significant bias in their reporting. Blackman, a Conservative MP for Harrow East, emphasized the importance of discussing this issue within the parliamentary setting. Notably, the BBC is a publicly funded media organization in Britain.

 

During the parliamentary session, MP Bob Blackman highlighted the consecration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, stating that it brought immense joy to Hindus worldwide as it is considered the birthplace of Lord Ram. Blackman criticized the BBC for reportedly suggesting in its coverage that the temple was replaced by a mosque, neglecting its 2,000-year history as a temple. He also mentioned that five acres of land had been allocated for the construction of a mosque near the city.

 

MP Blackman argued that the BBC's lack of impartiality and failure to accurately portray global events should be subject to debate during government time. Taking his grievances to social media, Blackman noted that various groups had raised concerns about the BBC's biased reporting on the Ram temple and stressed the importance of the media providing an accurate account of events worldwide.

 

The grand inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya occurred on January 22, witnessing the presence of thousands of attendees, including foreign representatives. The Deputy Prime Minister of Fiji, Biman Prasad, is scheduled to visit the Ram temple in Ayodhya the following week. Additionally, many states observed school holidays on the day of Ram Mandir's Pran Pratishta, and both central and state government offices, along with other establishments and public sector banks, remained closed for half the day.
