Netflix’s Sacred Games has been in news for quite a while for quite a number of reasons for some of the dialogues spoken by Nawazuddin Sidddiqui playing the character of Ganesh Gaitonde in the series.
This invited a Bengal Congress worker filing a case against the streaming channel and also the producers because Ganesh has spoken ill of Rajiv Gandhi. And now his son, Rahul Gandhi has finally spoken about all the controversies.
He took to twitter to speak about all that he feels about this event – he lived and died in the service of the country. This is what he tweeted exactly:
BJP/RSS believe the freedom of expression must be policed & controlled. I believe this freedom is a fundamental democratic right.
My father lived and died in the service of India. The views of a character on a fictional web series can never change that.#SacredGames

Congress has been vocal about blaming ruling party BJP and RSS for propagating lies for political gains. But this is the first time that Rahul has come forward and made his views public about this event. The show has spoken about Bofors scam, Shah Bano case, Babri Masjid and communal riots. And while speaking of them, it was clearly mentioned that the former PM was involved in the Bofors scam.
The eight episodes of the series recently released, and the second season of the show is now being awaited by the digital audiences.
