Finally watched Kashmir files with my mom yesterday, couldn’t write immediately,since the reality of the suffering and pain of KP which I was aware of but not in this depth hit me hard. All my mom said to me in the theatre was how on earth a human can do this to another human.
Forget all other reasons and just watch to know the suffering of humans and long injustice to them. How politics didn’t allow even to speak their stories, how our so called fighters of justice failed them because that injustice didn’t fit into their narrative.
Pain and suffering shook me to the core but for me, the masterpiece was how the movie depicted the modus operandi of the Leftist ecosystem and their desire to be seen as the messiah of the voiceless. The reality though is completely the opposite.
This movie tell stories of Kashmiri Pandits without any apologia or bringing any balance to it, it might feel like accusing all Kashmiri Muslims but when Kashmiri Muslims failed to speak for their minorities, fight for them, they as a society do become responsible. I have seen very few Kashmiri Muslims, likes of Sualeh Keen, Arshia Malik , Khalid Baig and a few others who for last 1 decade have on hundreds of occassions written about the sufferings of their once existent Hindu Minority. Sadly I have not seen even thousands of Kashmiri Muslims speak about Pandits. Many even openly mock their plight, their tragedy. Also I know the societal pressures likes of Sualeh Keen, Arshia and Khalid feel time to time for speaking about Kashmiri Pandit Victims. Hence I am skeptical of the number of Kashmiri Muslims who genuinely feel some sense of shame and sadness regarding what happened to their Hindu minority.
This movie should be watched by every Indian and those who are passionate about humanity, social justice and fairness. Not just by ‘Hindu’.
I am sorry as a fellow Indian for failing Kashmiri Pandits.
Kashmiri Muslims, rest of India and the world owes them an apology, at the least.
I share your pain. 
The film depicts the agony, the torture, and several years of waiting for justice of five lakh Kashmiri Hindus. The Kashmiri Hindus had to leave everything behind in 1990 when Kashmir echoed under the announcements of “Raliv, Galiv, Chaliv” (Convert to Islam, leave the place, or die) after which the most horrendous genocide of the Kashmiri Hindus followed.
The movie brings out the brutal truth of the Kashmiri Hindu genocide which was not told ever. It was kept hidden for decades. The Kashmiri Hindus still await justice. Years after their exodus they are still staying in their own country as refugees.
Will ever justice be brought to them?
