The senior Congress leader’s statement came amid controversy over the film ‘The Kashmir Files’, which is based on the exodus of Pandits.
“Political parties are dividing people day and night in the name of religion and caste. I will not forgive any political party, including myself. Civil society must stand together. All must stand together regardless of caste or religion.” Ghulam Nabi Azad said.
“Mahatma Gandhi was the greatest secularist. Pakistan and the extremists are responsible for what happened in Jammu and Kashmir. It affected all religions in Kashmir like Hindus, Pandits, Muslims, Dogras and so on.” Ghulam Nabi Azad said in Jammu and Kashmir.
‘The Kashmir Files’ tells the story of the departure of Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s. The controversy surrounding the film has been strong since its release on March 11. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced his solidarity with the film at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting. Opposition parties have accused the film of being a propaganda ploy by Hindutva activists.
