Gupta stated that the remarks made by CM Kejriwal wherein he called the movie ‘Kashmir Files’ on Kashmiri Hindu massacre a “lie” has hurt the sentiments of Kashmiri Hindus worldwide.
New Delhi: BJP legislator Vijender Gupta on Monday moved a condemnation motion in Delhi assembly over the insensitive remarks made by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Kashmiri pandits exodus and demanded an apology. Opposition members protested on turning down of the motion. Vijender Gupta was marshalled out while the rest of the opposition walked out in protest.
In the motion, Gupta stated that the remarks made by CM Kejriwal wherein he called the movie ‘Kashmir Files’ on Kashmiri Hindu massacre a “lie” has hurt the sentiments of Kashmiri Hindus worldwide.
He had requested the Speaker of the house to allow the motion to be passed in the Assembly. However, the request was turned down.
“Not only did CM Kejriwal refused to make the movie tax-free, he and his MLAs laughed and mocked the true plight of Kashmiri Hindus. With this, he exposed his mindset that makes him sympathise with urban naxals and separatists while disregarding their victims. After doing the damage, CM Kejriwal has gone on a spree to appear as a well-wisher of Kashmiri Hindus,” Gupta said.
Gupta said that he is touting regularising 200 Kashmiri Hindu teachers as a big achievement, while hiding the fact that he was directed to so by the Delhi High Court.
“Kejriwal is a master of creating smokescreen and hiding the truth. This time, he is trying to spread lies that Modi government has done nothing for Kashmiri Hindus. When the truth is that it is under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that Article 370 was revoked in the valley that removed barriers for Balmiki Samaj to be treated at par as rest of the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir. It is under PM Modi that terrorist run organisation such as Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) have been banned and delegitimised, which once were treated as mainstream organisation in the valley. Under Modi government terrorists like Yasin Malik who admitted having killed Kashmiri Pandits during 1990 genocide are facing trial.
Gupta said that CM Arvind Kejriwal has not only made a dozen of films such Nil Battey Sannata, 83 and so on, tax free, but also praised these movies openly. The only reason why he is not providing similar support to ‘Kashmir Files’ is that because the movie has helped create awareness on the Kashmiri Hindu genocide.
