The Kashmir Files’ makers have ignored Muslims’ blood: IIOJK cleric


As the row over the controversial movie ‘The Kashmir Files’ continues, now a cleric in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir has called for a ban on the film, slamming it for ignoring the blood and pain of Muslims.

Addressing a gathering inside Jamia Masjid in IIOJK’s Rajouri district the cleric, Moulvi Farooq, said that thousands of Kashmiri Muslims have been killed but their pain was ignored. He said, “After 32 years, they saw the blood of Kashmiri Pandits, but in 32 years, how many Muslims were killed, women were widowed, houses were destroyed. They did not see the blood of Muslims.”

He further said the movie was divisive aimed at demonizing Muslims. “We condemn the makers of the movie. Can’t they see the pain of Muslims? Why are they just focusing on Pandits?” Moulvi Farooq said. He added that the Muslims have ruled for 800 years in India, adding the country’s rulers can’t eliminate their identity.

He maintained that the movie was a conspiracy against Muslims. “There is a conspiracy against Muslims in this film, we condemn it. An attempt has been made to build a wall through this film, but we will not tolerate it at all. Those who want to do politics by inciting fighting between Hindus and Muslims should be ashamed,” Moulvi Farooq said.—KMS
