Writer-director Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files is being made a topic of discussion because this film has been made to build a wall between Hindu-Muslim and spread hatred. Kashmiri Pandits have raised their voice against this film and have slapped Vivek Agnihotri.
Vivek Agnihotri claimed that he interviewed 700 people ranging from police, army, bureaucrats to Kashmiri Pandits. Vivek also claimed that the film was made to bring justice to Kashmiri Pandits, but after the release of the film, the wind went out. Among those who saw this film, except the right-wing, many people including Kashmiri Pandits felt that it is a propaganda film and a bundle of lies.
The discussions on social media intensified after the release of the film. On one hand, Vivek Agnihotri and the right-wing took the front and started doing Hindu-Muslim, on the other hand, Kashmiri Pandits themselves started exposing Vivek’s lies.
Many viewers are saying that whatever happened to Kashmiri Pandits is wrong but Vivek Agnihotri has shown a one-sided story. A video is going viral on social media, which we do not confirm, but in this purported video, it can be heard and seen that the wife of Air Force Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna is saying that her husband’s scene has been shown wrong. How are the children going to school if there is a curfew? There is such a huge narcissism being shown, there is blood on the street and you are showing that the children are going to school? Ravi Khanna’s scene has been crammed in the middle.
Actually, in the film, Vivek has shown that Mithun is walking and 3-4 Air Force officers are standing. Mithun says hi Ravi. Children give flowers and terrorist fire with bullets. These scenes have been objected to by the wife of Air Force Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna as she claims that the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ is not based on true facts. In the purported video, she is also asking the question, ‘Who has Vivek taken permission, from me, the army or the government?
Vivek Agnihotri has shown in this film ‘The Kashmir Files’ that Kashmiri Pandits were subjected to atrocities which is a reality. Had to live as a refugee in his own country, but behind this, Vivek has patted the BJP government along with sowing the seeds of Hindu-Muslim hatred and said that today’s government is with Kashmiri Pandits. Whereas the reality is completely different from that. People on social media have trolled this lie of Vivek fiercely and it has been written that in 1990 when Kashmiri Pandits were massacred, the Prime Minister of the country was VP Singh and this government had the support of BJP.
Not only this, the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir at that time was Jagmohan who was the leader of BJP. That is, under the rule of the BJP, Kashmiri Pandits were uprooted from Kashmir. Even now, there is a BJP government in the country for 8 years, but Kashmiri Pandits were not resettled in Kashmir, due to which Kashmiri Pandits had hoped.
Another video related to this is going viral on Twitter, in which Dr Agnishekhar has exposed the lies of BJP and Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files and praised former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and said that he has helped Kashmiri Pandits. This is the answer to Amit Shah’s statement when Amit Shah was lying about Kashmiri Pandits.
Dr Agnisekhar is the leader of Panun Kashmir organization of Kashmir Pandits. This video is being told of 2020-21. We do not confirm this video, but in the alleged video, Dr Agnishekhar is seen saying that “Amit Shah has made a wrong and regrettable statement regarding Kashmiri Pandits. He kept the wrong figures. He said that 44 thousand Kashmiri displaced families get relief amount of Rs 13000 per month which is totally wrong. I just confirmed this by talking to the relief commissioner in Jammu, about 22000 people get relief money and not 44 thousand. There are 44 thousand registered families”
Dr Agnishekhar further addresses Amit Shah is heard saying that “Amit Shah ji, while you attacking Congress, you keep attacking Congress but don’t lie. You said that there was districthood or left Kashmir under Congress rule. This happened in VP Singh’s government, which was supported by the BJP. The BJP did not withdraw its support from the government for our displacement.”
Listen, Amit Shah, saying by Dr. Agnishekhar that ‘You said that the land has been acquired so that due to employment package of 6000 students there will be the construction of flats for around 3000 children who went there and those who are going to go there. With this, you said that the resolve of the BJP will be fulfilled. What could be a greater shame than this? Was this your resolution? And even this employment package has not been given by BJP. This package was announced by the government of Dr. Manmohan Singh. I raised this issue in the Round Table Conference after which Manmohan Singh’s government announced it. If you want to take credit for it, take it. Is the number of Kashmiri Pandits only 6000? This is the question of lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits. Amit Shah Ji, you are a failed Home Minister who has failed everywhere.”
Speaking on Article 370, Dr Agnishekhar said that “What did you give? You removed Article 370 which we welcomed but still, we lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits are living on 4th August”
Thu thud is happening on social media and the public is telling this film full of lies, hate and one-sided story. The right-wing is busy with its work and trending The Kashmir File, but they are also getting a befitting reply.
BJP MP and Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal tweeted and wrote that “If you are Indian then you must watch this film.” Replying to Paresh Rawal, a user wrote that “I am Indian and Kashmiri Pandit too but I will not watch this film The Kashmir Files”. Enough is enough to play hate politics on the history of Kashmiri Pandits.
However, all the claims of Vivek Agnihotri were exposed by Kashmiri Pandits themselves and it became clear that The Kashmir File is a propaganda film made to spread hatred between Hindu-Muslim. Neither BJP did anything for Kashmiri Pandits nor this film The Kashmir Files is made to get them justice.
