New Delhi. Nadav Lapid, head of the jury board of the 53rd International Film Festival of India in Goa, is now facing criticism from all over for his controversial remarks on ‘The Kashmir Files’. After Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid’s comment on Kashmir files, Israel’s Ambassador to India Naor Gillon condemned his statement and apologized for it. Nevertheless, this matter has now caught fire. Lapid has been criticized by many.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur criticized Nadav Lapid while retweeting the statement of Israel’s Ambassador to India, Naor Gillon. Naor Gillon wrote to Nadav Lapid that you have made the worst possible use of the Indian invitation to chair the panel of judges as well as their trust, respect and warm hospitality. It is insensitive and presumptuous to talk about historical events before studying them in depth. He said that the friendship between the people of India and Israel is very strong and will survive despite the damage done by you… I am ashamed and want to apologize to my hosts.
the jews themselves have been victims
While on IFFI Jury Head’s comment on KashmirFiles, Israel’s Consul General Kobbi Shoshani said, ‘When I saw the film, tears came to my eyes. It was not easy to watch this film. We are Jews, who have suffered from terrible things and I think we have to share the suffering of others. Daniel Carmon, Israel’s former ambassador to India and Sri Lanka, criticized Nadav Lapid, saying that he must apologize for his personal comments on historical facts without any sensitivity. Really don’t know what he is talking about. At the same time, Ashok Pandit said, ‘I strongly object to the language used by Nadav Lapid for the Kashmir files. Showing the massacre of 3 lakh Kashmiri Hindus cannot be called vulgar. I condemn this shameless act towards the victims of terrorism as a filmmaker and a Kashmiri Pandit.
Schindler’s List was also called propaganda
BJP social media team head Amit Malviya said the Israeli ambassador responded to compatriot filmmaker Nadav Lapid’s criticism of The Kashmir Files. For the longest time people also denied the Holocaust and called Schindler’s List a propaganda, just like some people are doing with the Kashmir files. Ultimately truth wins no matter what. Anupam Kher, who acted in ‘Kashmir Files’, said on the statement of IFFI Jury Head that… if the Holocaust is true, then the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits is also true. I think it was pre-planned because soon after this the Toolkit gang got active. May God give him wisdom so that he does not use the tragedy of thousands and millions of people from the stage to fulfill his agenda.
Commenting on ‘The Kashmir Files’, Nadav Lapid got trapped badly, IFFI’s jury board gave this reaction
Sanjay Raut has a different melody
While Sanjay Raut, Rajya Sabha MP from Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray faction, struck a different note, saying, ‘I would only say that the propaganda of one party was against one party and this film was made for that. An entire party and the entire government, wherever there is a BJP government, the government there was promoting it. After the arrival of this cinema, the maximum number of killings of Kashmiri Pandits have taken place in Kashmir. You must have seen that Pandits were killed, security personnel were killed, then where were these people with Kashmir files? Now make Kashmir Files-2. While BJP leader in Jammu, Kavinder Gupta said, ‘Such remarks are an attempt to defame India. Much more has happened than what has been shown in The Kashmir Files. Some agencies are carrying out such incidents to defame India.
