In a country where people get arrested for expressing their political views online, no one was surprised to see people get offended by the series Sacred Games for defaming Rajiv Gandhi. But politician Rahul Gandhi surprised everyone by tweeting in favour of the series, “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”. The statement has been hailed as a mature response from the seasoned politician. But in the end, it is just a show, and the defamation only comes from the point of view of a Mumbai gangster within this act of fiction.
