Mumbai| Jagran Entertainment Desk: Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri will soon be making a movie on Kashmiri Pandits.

Agnihotri said that the film would be an investigation, recording first-hand testimonials of the victims and also the perpetrators.

The movie will be based on Kashmiri Pandits, who were forced to move out of Kashmir Valley in 1990 due to militancy.

"Kashmiri Pandits are homeless in their own country. This is the seventh exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir - their home. Since WW II, there hasn't been such a violent and barbaric ethnic cleansing anywhere in the world," Agnihotri said in a statement.

Last week, Agnihotri had tweeted: "More I read on Kashmiri Pandit exodus, I feel ashamed of myself. What was I doing in 1991? What had happened to me that I kept watching the direct attack on Hindu civilisation, shrinking of Hindu territory, culture in its own land? What made me so indifferent to my own identity?"

"This is India's holocaust where at midnight the minorities of Kashmir valley were asked to leave the valley and they were specifically asked to leave behind all their property and women,” he added.

"Children were killed with AK-47, women were raped, men were cut with a wood cutting saw, houses were burnt. India's most secular region was converted into an Islamic region controlled with Sharia law. My film is about the sinister politics behind it. Everyone is responsible for such a tragedy. My film is about that," he added.

His team had been researching for this topic from the last year.

"Now we are planning to form a 'Project KP Commission' where we will record first-hand testimonials of the victims and also the perpetrators. This will be the first of its kind effort in this issue anywhere in the world. I want a fair and unbiased investigation so that we can correct the prejudiced narrative," he said.
