‘Propaganda by one party against other’: BJP, Oppn spar over The Kashmir Files controversy

Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid’s remark against the controversial film The Kashmir Files has triggered a political storm. While leaders from the ruling BJP have lashed out at Lapid for calling the film “vulgar” and “propaganda”, many from the Opposition have praised him for daring to speak the truth.

Lapid, who was invited to chair the panel of judges at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) had also said that he was “shocked” and “disturbed” by the film’s inclusion in the competitive section.

Reacting to Lapid’s statement, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday said, “It’s true about Kashmir Files. There was propaganda by one party against another. A party & Govt was busy with publicity. But maximum number of killings in Kashmir occurred after this film. Kashmir Pandits, security personnel were killed”
