Netflix’s first original Indian web-series ‘Sacred Games’ has been making headlines ever since the beginning. And now a tweet by INC president Rahul Gandhi about the series has turned into a political debate.

But before we proceed, let’s see what the whole issue is all about. The series has earned critical appraise from all sources, domestic and international. But unfortunately, it has landed up in some trouble with the Indian legal system.




It is interesting to note that the Indian censor board does not censor the content on the internet. Hence some of the content that went uncensored landed the series in legal trouble.

To begin with, the story revolves around a gangster Ganesh Gaitonde who returns after many years of being underground. Subsequently, the show also traces how a police officer Satraj is chasing Gaitonde to save his city.

One of the scenes in the series, shows Gaitonde abusing former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi calling him ‘coward’. Nawaz’s character also implicates that Rajiv Gandhi appeased the Muslim community for his own political benefits.

In a reaction to these scenes, a Congress member filed an FIR against makers and actor of ‘Sacred Games’. But recently, politician Rahul Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi’s son, tweeted something that left most people stunned. Gandhi took to his twitter account and posted the following tweet:



Soon after, actress Swara Bhaskar also took to her twitter account and applauded Rahul Gandhi in the following tweet:



Sacred Games co-director Anurag Kashyap also could not stop himself from rejoicing at Rahul’s tweet. Take a look at what he posted:



Tweeple also took the opportunity and reacted to the exchange of tweets in their own funny way. Here are some of the most interesting responses by Twitterati:


A suppressive party like Congress does not look good talking about freedom of expression (FOE).



Sacred Games is based on hardcore facts, Rahul Gandhi could not have taken any other stand on the matter.



After this tweet, Rahul Gandhi will quit Congress.



If Rahul really believes in FOE, Congress should let ‘Sacred Games’ show whatever they want.



Before rejoicing, Anurag should first ask Rahul to take the FIR back.




Guess we’ll just have to wait and watch if anyone is going to take the FIR against ‘Sacred Games’ back, in light of Rahul Gandhi’s tweet. What do you think?
