The Kashmir Files: A Poignant Tale Of An Exodus Susceptible To Weaponization 5 (2)

Some have called it devastating; some distressing; some genocidal; some a rightwing propaganda; and those who endured the agony in reality, the Kashmiri Pandits, found an emotional deliverance in it, a catharsis, a depiction of the pain that was under censorship hitherto.
