Tripura government detaxes Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files


After Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, the government of Tripura has announced its decision to zero-rate The Kashmir Files. The film is based on the ordeal of the Kashmiri pandits during the start of the uprising in the valley.

The Kashmir Files stars Anupam Kher in the lead role.

The government of Tripura decided to make The Kashmir Files tax exempt to encourage people to watch the film. Director Vivek Agnihotri is based on the ordeal of the Kashmiri Pandits during the start of the uprising in the valley. It stars Anupam Kher and Mitun Chakraborty in the lead roles.

On Monday March 14, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb called on people on Twitter to watch the film. “The film Kashmir Files directed by Vivek Agnihotri depicts the heartbreaking struggle and trauma faced by Hindus in Kashmir. To support her movie and encourage people in the state to watch it, the government of Tripura has decided to make it tax free in the state (sic),” Deb tweeted.

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) welcomed the government’s decision. “The Kashmir Files is a well-researched film based on the brutality faced by Kashmiri Hindus in the valley. We call on all people of Tripura to watch the film to know the reality of how pundits were tortured and driven out of their homeland,” VHP West Tripura District Chairman Bijoy Saha said.

The Kashmir Files tells the true story of the brutal suffering endured by Kashmiri pundits in 1990 during the Kashmir uprising. It is a true story, based on video interviews of the first generation of Kashmir genocide victims from the Kashmiri Pandit community. It is a harrowing account of the pain, suffering, struggle and trauma of Kashmiri pundits and challenges telling facts about democracy, religion, politics and humanity.
