Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference(G) said that Bollywood movies made on Kashmir always neglect real pain and suffering of the people, that these films act as a tool for India’s occupation in the valley.
“Kashmiris are known across the globe for their hospitality, but India is doing everything to justify its occupation on Kashmir and Bollywood actors are playing a part in this propaganda,” hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar said in a statement.
Ayaz, who was reacting to shooting of film ‘Haider’ going on in the valley, said that the films made on Kashmir by Bollywood are far from reality. He said that Bollywood has been showing the freedom struggle of Kashmiris sponsored by Pakistan’s ISI.
Ayaz said that Kashmiri women are known for their character across the globe, but Bollywood continues to promote love affairs between Indian forces and Kashmiri women, which is nothing but propaganda to defame them.
The spokesman alleged that thousands of people have been killed in fake encounters like Machil and Pathribal, and thousands of Kashmiris have disappeared. He said that no film has been made on Kunanposhpora massrape or Asia and Neelofar rape and murder cases. “Bollywood does nothing except protect its national interest when it comes to shooting films here, like Indian print and broadcast media which never shows the real picture of Kashmir,” he alleged.
