Vivek Agnihotri on IFFI: Vivek Agnihotri, director of The Kashmir Files, talks exclusively to ABP on the controversy surrounding ‘The Kashmir Files’ at IFFI. Vivek said that the forces speaking against the film are those who want to separate Kashmir from India and those who support terrorist activities against Kashmir.
There is a section against India and Kashmir
Vivek said that this statement has been given in favor of such foreign powers which do not consider Kashmir as a part of India from the beginning and the same agenda has been pushed forward under this statement. Vivek said that there is such a large section in India, including the toolkit in the country, which has been working against Kashmir and India under an agenda since the beginning and whatever was said against the film in Goa is a part of the same narrative. .
The film has faced protests before
Vivek said that being a jury, a bond is signed in such film festivals that you can neither express your personal opinion against the festival nor against any film, and yet all this was said openly. This is vulgar and propaganda. Vivek said that since four years ago when he was researching about this film, there has been opposition to this ‘The Kashmir Files’ and in such a situation, he is not surprised that such a big thing has been said against his film. .
People did not know the history of Kashmir
Vivek said that those opposing his film and making statements against it do not know the history of Kashmir nor do they know anything about the atrocities committed against Kashmiri Pandits and these people themselves are victims of propaganda.
Questions have also started to arise regarding the ‘vaccine war’.
Vivek expressed his happiness on the support received from the Israeli Ambassador in India and the Israeli Council General in Mumbai. Vivek said that voices are already being raised protesting against his next ‘vaccine war’.
