The ‘Kashmir Files’ Censored: Another Attack on the Freedom of New Zealanders

The ‘Kashmir Files’ has been shown in America, Australia, India and many other locations around the world.  To date the film has been viewed by over 1.1 billion people.

The film is about true and real events surrounding the 1990 ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Kashmir and today over 400,000 Kashmir Pandits remain in exile after 32 years. 

To censor this film is tantamount to censoring information or images from the March 15th atrocities in New Zealand, or for that matter removing from public knowledge all images of the attack on 9/11.

Mainstream Muslims have both in this country and around the world readily and rightly denounced all forms of terrorism on the basis that committing violence in the name of Islam is not Muslim.  Neither should steps taken against Islamophobia mistakenly lead to the shielding of terrorists in the name of Islam.

Terrorism in all its forms, no matter what its source, should be exposed and opposed.  This attempt at selective censorship would amount to one further attack on the freedom of New Zealanders and people worldwide.
