‘Tweeted Only Factual News, With No Comment On Content, ‘ Says Shashi Tharoor After Vivek Agnihotri Drags Late Wife Sunanda Pushkar’s Name

In his response to ‘The Kashmir Files’ Director Vivek Agnihotri’s tweet, senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday said that dragging his late wife Sunanda Pushkar into the matter was unjustified.
This controversy took shape after Mr Tharoor shared a media report over his Twitter handle showing that ‘The Kashmir Foles’ has been prohibited in Singapore.

“Film promoted by India’s ruling party, ‘Kashmir Files’, banned in Singapore,” Mr Tharoor tweeted.
In his response to MP’s tweet, ‘The Kashmir Files Director Vivek Agnihotri said that Singapore has the most robust censor across the world and asked him to stop making “fun” of the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits.

“Dear fopdoodle, gnashnab @ShashiTharoor, FYI, Singapore is most regressive censor in the world. It even banned ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ (ask your madam). Even a romantic film called #TheLeelaHotelFiles will be banned. Pl stop making fun of Kashmiri Hindu Genocide,” he said in a tweet.
In his next tweet, Agnihotri asked Mr Tharoor to delete his tweet if his late wife was a Kashmiri Hindu.

“Hey @ShashiTharoor, Is this true that Late Sunanda Pushkar was a Kashmiri Hindu? Is the enclosed SS true? If yes, then in Hindu tradition, to respect the dead, you must delete your tweet and apologise to her soul,” said the Director in his further tweet.

As the round of words grew between the director and the MP, actor Anupam Kher also joined and asked the Congress leader to show some sensitivity towards Kashmiri Pandits for atleast her late wife who was herself a Kashmiri.

“Dear @ShashiTharoor! Your callousness towards #KashmiriHindus genocide is tragic. If nothing else at least for #Sunanda’s sake, who was a Kashmiri herself, you should show some sensitivity towards #KashmiriPandits & not feel victorious about a country banning #TheKashmirFiles!” Kher who played a lead role in the film tweeted.

Meanwhile, after her wife Sunanda Pushkar was dragged into the matter, the senior Congress leader said that he has not even watched the movie, so he has not made any comment on movie content.

“I tweeted a factual news item this morning, with no comment on its content or on the film ‘The Kashmir Files’, which I have not seen. At no point did I mock or disparage the sufferings of Kashmiri Pandits, of whose plight I am intimately aware, and to which I have repeatedly drawn attention over the years,” Shashi Tharoor said in a statement on Twitter.

“Dragging my late wife Sunanda into this matter was unwarranted and contemptible. No one is more aware of her views than I am. I have accompanied her to the destroyed ruins of her ancestral home in Bomai, near Sopore, and joined her in conversations with her Kashmiri neighbours and friends, both Muslim and Hindu. One thing I know, unlike those attempting to exploit her when she is not around to speak for herself: She believed in reconciliation, not hate,” he further said.
