Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had spoken about the film. Hindustan Times quoted the PM saying, “Those people who claim to be flag bearers of freedom of speech, are furious for the past 5-6 days. Instead of praising the film based on facts, they are out to discredit Kashmir Files. My issue is not the film, but the need to bring out the truth in national interests. Those who disagree with this film can make their own on the basis of their perception.”
