Srinagar- Filmmaker Nadav Lapid on Wednesday received support from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

Mehbooba endorsed Israeli filmmaker's criticism of the Bollywood movie 'The Kashmir Files'. Mehbooba Mufti said the movie was a“sheer propaganda promoted by the ruling party to demonize Muslims, especially Kashmiris”.

Lapid, who headed the jury at the 53rd International Film Festival of India in Goa, said during Monday's closing ceremony that 'The Kashmir Files' was a“propaganda movie” that had no place at a film festival, drawing a wave of criticism and outrage on social media.

“Finally someone called out a movie that was nothing but sheer propaganda promoted by the ruling party to demonize Muslims especially Kashmiris & widen the gulf between Pandits & Muslims. Sad that diplomatic channels are now being used to silence the truth,” Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.
