Bollywood director Vivek Agnihotri, who is miffed over the criticism of his movie 'The Kashmir Files' by Nadav Lapid, continued to attack the Israeli filmmaker, calling him a "terror supporter".

Lapid, who served as the chairperson of IFFI's international jury, had called the film a "vulgar and propaganda" movie in his speech at the award ceremony during the closing night of the nine-day film festival.

On Monday, Agnihotri linked the criticism of Lapid with the threat letter issued by a terrorist group in Jammu and Kashmir. Recently, a blog linked to The Resistance Front (TRF), an offshoot of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, published a list of 56 Kashmiri Pandit employees under PMRP, and warned of mounting attacks on them.

Agnihotri draw a correlation between Lapid's criticism of the movie and the threat letter by the militant group, saying: Pic 1/2: Cause

In less than a week, after Islamist terrorists were given ideological support openly from GOI’s platform #IFFI2022, The Resistance Front (a front of LeT) has issued a list of Kashmiri Hindus to be targeted by its terrorists.
Pl save this tweet.”

"If any Hindu is targeted in Kashmir after this, you know who has the blood on his/her hand.
Pl save this tweet," he wrote.

In another tweet, while also targeting journalist Karan Thapar, he said, "Karan Thapar had once asked me to throw out Pallavi Joshi from a serial because she was dark. I cancelled the contract. Few days later Home TV, which he headed, shut down. That’s why I am not surprised that he helped the WOKE terror supporter Lapid in Genocide denial of Hindus."
