The Kashmir Files ,The Kashmir Files, has brought back to the fore the old issues that Lutyens’ Delhi (Delhi) had suppressed it according to his choice. Today when one goes to see this film and in the nineties Kashmiri Pandits (Kashmiri Pandits) When he sees the statistics of the massacre, he gets horrified just thinking about that cruelty and atrocities. The capture of their towns, the obsessive hatred against them, the targeting of Hindus, the ruthless killings and genocide of Kashmiri Pandits and, ousting them from their areas where they had been living for centuries, are events that are talked about by many. Indians will not know.

Through this film, these people got to know what really happened. For many years Lutyens’ Delhi and then governments tried to suppress the ground realities, believing that revealing them could lead to communal tension. However, the country needed to know about the suffering and cruelty that Kashmiri Pandits had to endure so that something could be done to heal their sufferings. Due to the governments that came after the incident, more than 7 lakh Kashmiri Pandits fell into the trap of the poor, these governments did nothing towards meeting their needs.

everyone is feeling sad today

This was the first time in independent India that Indians were expelled from their native land and had to become refugees in their own country. This incident becomes more sad because then it has been 40 years since India got independence. The Kashmir Files shows how the Government of India had failed to protect the life, liberty and property of its own citizens. It was such a weak government that succumbed to communal politics and tried to cover up these heinous crimes against humanity and Kashmiri Pandits.


As the story goes, everyone is feeling sad today, they are able to feel the pain of Kashmiri Pandits. We have seen the Prime Minister talking to his own party and telling that he is being criticized in the name of freedom of expression, people are saying that his freedom is being hampered, in the same country Bollywood, film fraternity and Lutyens’ Delhi. Many people tried to suppress the truth of Kashmiri Pandits. We need to know about the various incidents that happened in the country, suppressing the truth to solve any problem is not a solution. Revealing the truth will not incite any sentiment against any community as everyone understands that the era was different when such atrocities took place and now we have to take steps to improve.


The Holocaust (genocide against the Jews) happened because of what Hitler had done to the Jews. Later, Jews built Holocaust museums in Berlin and other places so that the memories of the Holocaust could never be forgotten. The places where the Jewish massacre took place, their camps are still preserved for visitors to visit, so that people can understand the horrors of this incident and ensure that such incidents do not happen again in the future. Keeping the memory of such incidents alive is not to incite public anger towards any community, but these memories show the extent to which human beings can fall for cruelty.

Stupid people have found their voice

Now Bollywood has also been completely exposed. We have seen in many films suppressing the atrocities committed against Kashmiri Pandits by local Muslims, fundamentalists and jihadis. We have also seen that Lutyens’ Delhi has even tried to justify this violence by saying that Kashmiri Pandits were the elite of Kashmiri society and they oppressed others and in response the victims tortured them .


It is also unfortunate that many journalists supported attempts to justify these crimes. No crime can ever be justified. Violence cannot be called right in any civilized society. We should all stand up against crime, criminals, and violence, no matter who is against it. We all must ensure that the government fulfills its responsibility of protecting the lives of the people, their liberties and their property.


Thus The Kashmir Files is a turning point after independence. Today the voiceless people have got their voice. Independent filmmakers are making films that show the truth, so that we can know where the mistake went. Truth and fair reporting is widely supported. Some critics say that The Kashmir Files only shows the brutality inflicted on Hindus and not other people. This is another clever argument. Incidents of brutality, ruthless killings, destruction of people and their homes cannot be compared with other incidents in Kashmir. Do people who make such unwarranted criticism ever tell us about the plight of Kashmiri Pandits and do they give an alternative view of it?
