Kulgam: Former Jammu Kashmir chief minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah Friday called ‘The Kashmir Files’ a concocted story by saying that “many lies have been projected in the movie.”
While talking to the media on the sidelines of a rally in the Kulgam district of South Kashmir, Omar said that it wasn’t clear whether the movie is a documentary or a film.
“The makers have claimed that the movie is based on reality. But the fact is that many lies have been projected in the film. The biggest lie is that there was an NC government. It was the Governor’s rule in 1990 in J&K when the Kashmiri Pandits left. At the Centre, it was the BJP-backed government headed by VP Singh,” Omar said.
He also said that “Kashmiri Pandits are not the only ones who had to migrate or were killed. “Muslims and Sikhs were also killed, they too had to migrate from Kashmir and haven’t returned yet,” Omar said.
He added that the NC tried and continues to play its part in bringing back the Kashmiri Pandits safely.
