Amravati: Targeting the Modi-led government over The Kashmir Files, NCP chief Sharad Pawar has said it is unfortunate that people in power promoted the film.
Addressing NCP workers here on Sunday, the former Union minister claimed that efforts are being made to create a rift in society on religious lines.
The NCP chief also claimed that when fuel hike and inflation are assuming serious proportions, efforts are being made to divert the people's attention from ''just and legitimate issues''.
''The film showed how Hindus were tortured...whenever a small community faces a problem how a majority community attacks them. If the majority community is Muslim then a sense of insecurity is experienced in the Hindu community.
"A planned conspiracy is taking place today to create this insecurity. Unfortunately, those who are in power in the country appealed to the people to watch this movie,'' Pawar said.
He also expressed concerns over the communal situation in the country.
''The BJP can't run away from the responsibility for attacks on Kashmiri Pandits. A rift between Hindus and Muslims is being created which is a very worrying thing. Hence, those who believe in protecting the interests of all the sections of society should come together," Pawar said.
