Hence the decision to ban ‘The Kashmir Files’
Some media reports said that ‘The Kashmir Files’ is outside the purview of city-state guidelines. It shows the one sided side of Muslims which is provoking. This could create a ruckus there. According to reports, the Infocomm Media Development Authority, in a joint statement with the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, and the Ministry of Home Affairs, said that ‘The Kashmir Files’ is far beyond Singapore’s film classification guidelines.
Officials said – one-sided is the oppression of Hindus and the side of Muslims
The officials told a channel named ‘News Asia’ that ‘The Kashmir Files’ shows the persecution and atrocities of Hindus in the conflict in Kashmir. For this reason, it does not figure in the Singapore Film Classification Guidelines. He said the kind of things and other activities depicted in the film could lead to enmity between different communities. At the same time, it also has the potential to break the unity of the society.
