In the ongoing International Film Festival of India ( IFFI) in Goa, jury head Nadav Lapid termed the film ‘ The Kashmir Files ‘ as vulgar propaganda.

After that Indian filmmaker, Ashoke Pandit, tweeted, “I take strong objection to the language used by Mr. Nadav Lapid for #kashmirFiles. Depicting the genocide of 3 lakh #KashmiriHindus cannot be called vulgar. I as a filmmaker & a #KashmiriPandit condemn this shameless act of abuse towards victims of terrorism.”
