Indian High Commission complains over Jeremy Clarkson


The Indian High Commission has complained to the BBC about Jeremy Clarkson, where he mocked India’s culture and people.

The Christmas edition of ‘Top Gear’ showed Clarkson making a string of jokes about the Indian food, clothes, toilets, trains and even the country’s history.

“We were disappointed in the programme and have lodged a protest with the BBC,” said an Indian diplomat working for the IHC.

“We are not amused. There was a strong sense of disappointment, not just here in the UK but back in India and also among our non-Indian friends as well.”

“We helped them with the programme in many ways, we facilitated them in a positive and good natured way. And now they have run down our history and culture.

“The BBC enjoys huge support and is greatly admired in India. I don’t think the BBC is endorsing that with this show and it is fair that it should be brought to their attention.”

A spokeswoman for ‘Top Gear’ said, “We have received a letter from the Indian High Commission. We will be responding directly to them in due course.”
