Sanjay Raut Sena’s Veiled Attack

Sanjay Raut: ‘The Kashmir Files’ revolves around the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits.

Mumbai:

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday said that ‘The Kashmir Files’ is just a film and will not provide any political advantage to anyone in the coming elections.

“It is not right to do politics on a sensitive issue like Kashmir… ‘The Kashmir Files’ is just a film, I don’t think it will provide any political advantage to anyone in the coming elections,” said Mr Raut addressing media persons here.

He further said that by the time the controversy surrounding the film will be gone by the time elections come.

“Whether the events shown in the film are true or not can be discussed later. Many things shown in the film are being questioned that are not true. Many people are also saying that there are many facts that were supposed to be shown, but are not shown. Muslims were also among those who died at that time. There were many officers whose lives were saved by Muslims, these are all such things that could be in the film but are not there,” he said.

The Shiv Sena MP said that in the coming days, the film will get a national award and the makers of the film will get something like Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan etc. “All these things keep happening, Y category security has also been received, we have seen,” he added.
