The Jammu and Kashmir Police has posted a 57-second video, which aims to show how all Kashmiris, irrespective of religion, were victims of militancy.
Called The Untold Kashmir Files, a reference to the recently released The Kashmir Files, the video was posted on J&K Police’s official Twitter account on March 31.
The Valley witnessed a fresh surge in attacks on migrants and Kashmiri Pandits on April 4.
The J&K Police clip starts with a shot of women mourning, with a text referring to the killing by suspected militants on March 27 of a Special Police Officer (SPO) and his twin brother in the Valley.
“Militants barged in the house of SPO Ishfaq Ahmed and killed him along with his brother Umer Jan,” said the text, along with photos of the two victims.

“Kashmir has lost 20,000 lives to these targeted killings. It’s time we speak up,” the text reads, as Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s Hum Dekhenge plays on in the background.
Released on March 11, The Kashmir Files, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, was endorsed by a number of Union Ministers and granted tax-free status in most all BJP-ruled states. The movie depicts the exodus of Pandits from Kashmir due to the rise in militancy and violence against the community.
