Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday (March 13, 2022) announced to make the recently-released film ‘The Kashmir Files’ tax-free in the state.
Bommai also praised Vivek Agnihotri’s film and called it a ‘blood-curdling, poignant and honest narrative’ of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from their homeland.
“To lend our support to the movie & encourage our people to watch it, we will make the movie tax-free in Karnataka,” he tweeted.
The BJP-led Haryana, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh governments have also made ‘The Kashmir Files’ tax-free.
‘The Kashmir Files’ is living depiction of human tragedy: Haryana CM
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday watched ‘The Kashmir Files’ movie and said that it is a living and touching depiction of the human tragedy that took place in the Kashmir Valley in 1990.
A former RSS pracharak, Khattar said he was ‘fortunate’ to have worked for the organisation for a long time in Jammu and Kashmir earlier.
“I have seen and understood closely the sufferings and conditions of the people there,” he added.
He said that the Haryana government has made the film tax-free, “so that our present generation also sees and understands this vibrant film”.
