Sanjay Raut said that it’s true about The Kashmir Files movie, and there was propaganda by one party against another

Mumbai: Shiv Sena Leader Sanjay Raut affirmed jury head at the 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) Nadav Lapid’s remarks on The Kashmir Files Movie. He said that there was ‘propaganda’ surrounding the movie. Lipid’s remarks are largely criticized.

During the closing ceremony of the IFFI on On November 28, Lapid termed ‘The Kashmir Files’ a “propaganda, vulgar film”, adding that he was “shocked” to see the film in the competition section of such a prestigious film festival.

“It’s true about Kashmir Files. There was propaganda by one party against another,” Raut said. He alleged that the maximum number of killings took place after the movie was released. He further desired to learn about why Kashmir Files 2.0 is not yet made.

Referring to murders in the Kashmir Valley – largely targeting civilians and migrants, Raut said, “A party and government was busy with publicity… but the maximum number of killings in Kashmir occurred after this film. Kashmir Pandits, security personnel were killed,”

Raut, in his comments, added: “Where were these Kashmir Files people then? The children of Kashmiri Pandits were also agitating, where were they then? Nobody came forward then, nor were there plans for a Kashmir Files 2.0 – make that too.”

Veteran actor Anupam Kher of the ‘The Kashmir Files’ fame on Tuesday said it is “shameful” on the part of IFFI (International Film Festival of India) jury head Nadav Lapid to term the film “propaganda, vulgar” at the festival’s closing ceremony.

“If the holocaust was right then the exodus of Kashmiri pandits is also right. This seems pre-planned because immediately after it the tool-kit gang became active. It’s shameful for him to make a statement like this even though he comes from a community of Jews who suffered from the holocaust,” Kher told ANI on Tuesday.

“So by making a statement like this, he has also pained those people who suffered this tragedy. I would just say may god give him wisdom so that he doesn’t use the tragedy of thousands of people to fulfill his aim on stage,” he added.
