Director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s Instagram Post
Giving his opinion on the matter, the director said, “A lot of people are wondering if my Twitter account has been suspended. No, this has not been done. I have deactivated it. Here’s why since I started the #TheKashmirFiles campaign, Twitter shadows have banned me. My followers dropped drastically and most of my followers could not see any of my tweets. Other than that, my DM was full of obscene and threatening messages (you know who). It’s not that I can’t handle such elements, but it looked like there were many Pakistani and Chinese bots. No matter how tough you are, being surrounded by such intense hatred and threats to your family is mentally testing. Why? Because of making an honest film on the pain and suffering of our Kashmiri brothers and sisters? Is it because they are upset that the truth might come out? The ugly world of social media has given power to many evil elements. And our silence gives them hope to succeed. TheKashmirFiles breaks that silence.
Director is being targeted for his film ‘The Kashmir Files’
Extending his point further, he said that I have always spoken against the enemies of India. #The KashmirFiles is an attempt to expose the inhuman terrorism that has destroyed the most sacred land of India Shiva and Saraswati. And now religious terrorism is making inroads in mainland India. That’s why they want people like me to be silenced.
I always speak for those whom no one listens to. I have been exposing many untrue and fake narratives by the anti-India Urban Naxalites. They want to silence me. But I know very well that silence helps in tragic incidents like the Kashmir genocide. They should know that I cannot be silenced. I thank all my followers and fans for their love and support.
This film is based on Kashmiri Pandits
