INDIA's DAUGHTER is the story of the short life, and brutal gang rape and murder in Delhi in December 2012 of an exceptional and inspiring young woman. The rape of the 23 year old medical student by 6 men on a moving bus, and her death, sparked unprecedented protests and riots throughout India and led to the first glimmers of a change of mindset. Interwoven into the story line are the lives, values and mindsets of the rapists whom the film makers have had exclusive and unprecedented access to interview before they hang. The film examines the society and values which spawn such violent acts, and makes an optimistic and impassioned plea for change. Written by Anonymous

BBC did a good job of creating a new propaganda against Indian. Kudos to you!

Will it raise its ratings and status in the eyes of the public? Yes!

If all Leslee Udwin cared about was about the rapes against women, she would have made a documentary on the rapes in her own homeland... which statistically have a lot more rapes compared to India,but she won't, cause that would have many indirect effects such as loss in tourism and if she wanted to go international, she could have filmed it in the country which has the highest rapes reported to population ratio.

But no!

Why you ask? That's because people don't know about them. They haven't reached the top international headlines yet.

This documentary is so commercial, its disgusting.

BBC. Shame on you.
