Actor Anupam Kher starrer ‘The Kashmir Files’ is in constant discussion these days. In support of the film, Kashmiri writer Javed Baig has not only apologized to the Kashmiri Pandit community by sharing a post on social media, but he has also accepted that that period was terrible and he is a witness that the crime has been committed.

The truth is always the truth, whether someone tells it or not
Javed Baig is also an activist, he shared the post and wrote that the mistakes made by his ancestors, today’s youth should accept that mistake. Javed Baig has also said that Kashmiri Muslims took up arms in the name of independence. This is not propaganda, but reality. He said that the truth is always the truth, whether someone tells it or not.

I still feel sad and ashamed
Javed Baig, referring to the Church Tikku in his post, wrote, “I am also a Kashmiri Muslim. Our sister Church Tikku was torn to pieces in her lifetime. It was done by those Muslim families of Kashmir, in whose hands Pakistan gained independence. Were handed over arms in the name. I apologize with folded hands to the Kashmiri Pandit fraternity. This is not propaganda, but truth. Whether one speaks the truth or not, the truth still remains the truth. I am a witness to the massacre of Kashmiri Pandits , which happened on Navroz day 21 March 1997 at Sangrampora Beerwah. That is my hometown. I feel sad and ashamed even today.”

The Kashmiri Pandits who were killed were our own people, our own people.
Not only this, along with these posts, Javed Baig has also shared a video clip of himself. In which he is seen speaking on a news channel. In the video, Javed says that the area where he comes from Beerwah, the first massacre took place on March 21. In which dozens of Kashmiri Pandits were killed. He has seen the barbaric massacre. Those who were killed, neither were they stopping anyone’s freedom, nor were they killing any Kashmiri Muslim. If what you are doing to unarmed people is not atrocity then what is. The Kashmiri Pandits who were killed were from our own basti, our own people.”

No film is needed to understand that crimes have happened.
At the end of this video, the writer is seen saying that Kashmiri Pandits were not non-existent. They are our blood. We are our race. The mistakes made by his father’s generation, those mistakes should be accepted today. It should be acknowledged that sins have been committed. You don’t need a movie to understand this. Just need conscience for this.” The graph of earnings of ‘The Kashmir Files’, which released in theaters on March 11, is increasing day by day. The film is continuously breaking records at the box office.

Meanwhile, there is news that the release of Gujarati film ‘Prem Prachar’ for ‘The Kashmir Files’ has been postponed. Now this film will be released later. The distributor of the Gujarati film, Vandan Shah, said in a statement that though the film was doing well at the box office, the makers wanted ‘The Kashmir Files’ to get more shows. “We will release ‘Prem Prachar’ in theaters a few days later,” he added.

‘The Kashmir Files’ is the first Bollywood film to see a steady boom in business without any big stars at a cost of around 12 crores. Not only this, on the first day the film got only 600 screens across the country. But, later the screen count was increased from 600 to 2000, seeing the audience’s passion for the film.
