Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri to make the movie on Kashmiri Pandit. The movie will be based on Kashmiri Pandits, who were forced to move out of Kashmir Valley in 1990 due to militancy.
Talking about the same, he said: It will be an investigation, recording first-hand testimonials of the victims and also the perpetrators.
“Kashmiri Pandits are homeless in their own country. This is the seventh exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir, their home. Since WW II, there hasn’t been such a violent and barbaric ethnic cleansing anywhere in the world,” Agnihotri added.
“This is India’s holocaust where at midnight the minorities of Kashmir valley were asked to leave the valley and they were specifically asked to leave behind all their property and women. Children were killed with AK-47, women were raped, men were cut with a wood cutting saw, houses were burnt. India’s most secular region was converted into an Islamic region controlled with Sharia law. My film is about the sinister politics behind it. Everyone is responsible for such a tragedy. My film is about that.”
He also added, Our team had been researching in this for the last one year. And now we are planning to form a ‘Project KP Commission’ where we will record first-hand testimonials of the victims and also the perpetrators. This will be first of its kind effort in this issue anywhere in the world. I want a fair and unbiased investigation so that we can correct the prejudiced narrative.
