Srinagar: The Global Kashmiri Pandit Diaspora (GKPD), an organisation working for Kashmiri Pandits who have suffered from Islamic atrocities in Jammu and Kashmir, has praised the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) by terming the incidents shown in the film as true. Utpal Kaul, the organisation's international coordinator, said 'The Kashmir Files' has briefly depicted the genocide and exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in the 1990s. That's only 10 percent of those incidents.
Utpal Kaul said, "What is shown in the film The Kashmir Files is true. That's only 10 percent of what happened in the Valley. There's a lot more than that. Praising the RSS, Kaul said, "Many Kashmiri Hindus are alive today because of the Sangh. He said that in the 1990s, the Sangh had helped The Kashmir Pandits to leave the Valley. Along with this, the Dogra Samaj, Arya Samaj and The Sikhs also helped the Hindus a lot. Kaul said in strong words that when the massacre and exodus of Hindus from Kashmir started in December 1990, the then government was nowhere to be seen during that time. On January 19, derogatory slogans were raised across Kashmir and a large-scale massacre of Hindus was carried out. It was all happening for the first time in history.
Kaul said, "We had to flee to save our lives and honours. We were displaced and came to the streets of Jammu. We knew what to do next. Later, the RSS gave shelter to thousands of Hindus at Geeta Bhawan.'' The RSS, which is working in more than 700 locations, also sent us the assistance of Rs 1.5 crore. Vivek Agnihotri's 'The Kashmir Files' was released in theatres on March 11. It shows on screen the truth of the massacre and exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s.
