New Delhi: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday, March 20, said that “It is not right to do politics on a sensitive issue like Kashmir… ‘The Kashmir Files’ is just a film, I don’t think it will provide any political advantage to anyone in the coming elections. By the time elections come, the film will be gone.”

The film revolves around the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990 and has been directed by Vivek Agnihotri, known for films like ‘Tashkent Files’, ‘Hate Story’ and ‘Buddha in a Traffic Jam’. Additionally, the film has been declared tax-free in several states including Uttar Pradesh, Tripura, Goa, Haryana, Gujarat, and Uttarakhand.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Ranaghat in West Bengal Jagannath Sarkar on Saturday alleged that a bomb was hurled at his car when he was returning after watching the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ in Nadia district.

“I was returning after watching ‘The Kashmir Files’. A bomb was hurled at my car on my way back, we escaped it (bomb) narrowly,” said Jagannath Sarkar. Sarkar claimed that he escaped the untoward incident as the car was in speed and the bomb landed behind his car.

The BJP MP claimed that Law and Order situation has deteriorated in Mamata Banerjee led West Bengal government and President rules should be imposed in the State to save the Democracy.

“No one is secure in Bengal as Law and Order situation has worsened in the state. Democracy has been toppled by the state government,” he said. “Article 356 (President’s rule) should be imposed to prevent the prevailing situation (deteriorating law and order) in the state. Otherwise, it won’t stop,” he added.
