Israeli ambassador to India apologizes on remarks of Nadav Lapid on Kashmir Files
Israel ambassador to India, Sri Lanka and Bhutan Naor Gilson has apologized for the comment made by an Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid on the film Kashmir files.
Israel film maker Nadav Lapid who headed the jury in the 53rd International Film Festival of India held at Goa criticized the Kashmir Files film as ‘propaganda and vulgar’ that had no place at a film festival at the closing ceremony on 28 November 2022.
Nadav Lapid was heavily criticized for his comment in India.
The Kashmir Files film is based on events in 1990 when more than 2 lakh Kashmiri Pandits (Hindus) fled from Jammu and Kashmir. It was the start of the Pakistan sponsored militancy in Jammu and Kashmir which took an Islamist colour and Kashmiri pandits were threatened to either leave Kashmir or convert to Islam. Kashmiri pandits were selectively killed by the Islamic militants to scare the community.
The film has been directed by Vivek Agnihotri and Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Pallavi Joshi, Mithun Chakraborthy have acted in the movies.
The film has become controversial as the film portrays the killing of Kashmiri pandits as a genocide and the critic accuses the film of increasing Islamophobia.
