"The Kashmir Files": Mehbooba Mufti said the Centre is weaponizing pain of Kashmiri Pandits

Srinagar: The aggressive manner in which the Centre is promoting "The Kashmir Files" film and "weaponizing" the pain of Kashmiri Pandits makes its "ill intention" obvious, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said on Wednesday.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief said instead of healing old wounds and creating a conducive atmosphere between the two communities, the Centre is "deliberately tearing them apart".

"The manner in which GOI (Government of India) is aggressively promoting Kashmir Files & is weaponizing pain of Kashmiri Pandits makes their ill intention obvious," Mehbooba Mufti wrote on Twitter.

Written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Zee Studios, the film depicts the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in the 1990s.

It stars Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Joshi among others.
