Tweets over controversial film: Notice to be issued to Muslim Indian officer



Angered by the comments of Indian Administrative Service officer Niyaz Khan wherein he has suggested that a film should also be made on the sufferings of Muslims, authorities in the BJP-ruled Indian state of Madhya Pradesh have decided to serve a show cause notice to him.

The IAS officer, Niyaz Khan, while giving his response to the controversial film ‘The Kashmir Files’, had tweeted: “Kashmir File shows the pain of Brahmins….. The producer must also make a movie to show the killings of large number of Muslims across several [Indian] states. Muslims are not in-sects but human beings and citizens of country.”

Khan, who is working as Deputy Secretary in the Public Works Department, also said that he was planning to write a book highlighting the massacre of Muslims so that a movie like ‘The Kashmir Files’ could be produced by someone to bring the pain and suffering of minorities before Indians.

Talking to reporters in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said, this is a seri-ous issue as Khan is crossing and violating the limit set for government officials, adding the state gov-ernment will issue a show-cause notice to him and seek his reply.

Separately, state Medical Education Minister Sarang, calling for Khan’s removal, had said he was going to write a letter against Khan to the personnel department. He alleged that the IAS officer was talking about sectarianism.—INP
