Films On Muslim Killings Should Be Made Too, Says MP IAS Officer

Bhopal: The Kashmir Files, a film about the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the Valley in the 1990s, has polarised Indian blogosphere opinion. In the middle of a blazing debate on the matter, a Madhya Pradesh IAS officer has urged that the film’s makers make a film about the plight of Muslims in the country.

IAS officer Niyaz Khan, who acknowledged that The Kashmir Files exposes the sorrow and suffering of Kashmiri Hindus who were forced out of their homes, added that the atrocities that Muslims face should also be shown on the big screen.

“Kashmir Files shows the pain of Brahmins. They should be allowed to live safely in Kashmir with all honour. The producer must also make a movie to show the killings of large number of Muslims across several states. Muslims are not insects but human beings and citizens of country,” Niyaz Khan said in a tweet.

Khan holds the post of deputy secretary in the Madhya Pradesh Public Works Department. He has also authored seven books, including Talaq Talaq Talaq (about instant Talaq) and Be Ready to Die, on the 2014 genocide of Yazidis by the Islamic State.

In another tweet, Khan said he is considering penning his eighth novel on the “massacre of Muslims”, which could serve as the source material for a movie on the subject.

“Thinking to write a book to show the massacre of Muslims on different occasions so that a movie like Kashmir Files could be produced by some producer, so that, the pain and suffering of minorities could be brought before Indians,” he said.

While critics and audiences have given The Kashmir Files mixed reviews, it has gotten backing from the central government, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and several other BJP politicians who have praised the film.

Made by director Vivek Agnihotri, The Kashmir Files has been declared tax-free in states like Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Karnataka, Tripura and Goa.
