Film on militant commander Burhan Wani triggers protests in Jammu. Watch the ‘Shocking’ Trailer here

Jammu: A Jammu based director by the name of Shahid Kazmi is coming up with a movie on militant commander Burhan Wani who died last year.

Documentary on ‘Burhan Wani’ Not Allowed to Screen

Centre’s Information and Broadcasting ministry has objected the releasing of four documentary films – two on Kashmir, one on the suicide of Hyderabad scholar Rohith Vemula and another on the trouble in Delhi’s prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University for failing the “sensitivity” test. Ministry officials say they scrutinize documentary films on four particular parameters. They concluded that films in question were “sensitive in nature” and threatened the “integrity of the country”, the officials said. The film-makers are up in arms, saying three of the documentaries were to be screened shortly at an international festival in Thiruvananthapuram.

An official said one of the films is about Burhan Wani, the Hizbul Mujahideen militant whose killing last year triggered unrest in Kashmir for nearly six months.
