Jammu, Nov 29 (PTI) Jammu and Kashmir BJP chief Ravinder Raina on Tuesday said Israeli director Nadav Lapid's remarks on 'The Kashmir Files' reflected his lack of knowledge about the ground situation in the Union Territory while filmmaker Ashok Pandit demanded a probe into his appointment.
Lapid, viewed as an anti-establishment filmmaker, had described 'The Kashmir Files' as a "propaganda movie" and "vulgar" at the closing ceremony of the 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) on Monday. He was chairperson of the international competition jury.
"He (Lapid) should first visit the camps of displaced Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and Kashmir. Such remarks are only expected from a person who does not know the ground situation and how people, irrespective of their religion, have suffered because of terrorism," Raina told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.
