Shatrughan Sinha Speaks To Subhash  K Jha On The Kashmir Files

What  do you have to say about the impact created  by Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir  Files?

I am sure  it is a  sincere  depiction of what happened  to Kashmiri Pandits.I am am completely  with the film and I don’t care if Anupam   Kher is  a part of the  film and  which party he is  speaking for. The plight  of  the   Kashmiri Pandits  should be  above politics. Having said  this  I have a question for  the BJP government.

What is  that?

Where  were you when this  monstrous  injustice against  the  Kashmiri Pandits was  being done?

Today you see political mileage  in weeping  for Kashmiri Pandits. So you  jump in. How long will communities be used as vote banks in  our country?

You have spoken about Kashmiri Pandits in  the past?
