"A country can't move forward by hiding the truth and the history," said BJP National Vice-President Baijayant 'Jay' Panda. Panda has stated that like the 'The Kashmir Files', 'The Delhi Files' can uncover the truth of our horrendous past which has been intentionally kept buried for decades.

After the massive success of The Kashmir Files, which brought to the fore the carnage against the indigenous Hindu minority living in Kashmir during 1990s, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has announced his next project The Delhi Files, the third and the last film of the trilogy after The Tashkent Files and The Kashmir Files.

The Delhi Files is likely to uncover several truths related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots when around 2,800 Sikhs were mercilessly massacred in Delhi alone following the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

Speaking to a news agency, the BJP VP said, "The Kashmir Files brought the horrific truth of Kashmiri Hindus being murdered and gangraped in the valley. The truth was then intentionally suppressed. Those claiming that this truth should better be left hidden are making such statements out of their sheer political motives."

Welcoming the initiative of Vivek Agnihotri to make The Delhi Files, Panda said thousands of Sikhs were murdered in 1984 and efforts were made to present a one-sided story. 

"In a democracy truth can never be suppressed, and it should never be. Hiding the truth can never bring brotherhood and peace. If we want to move forward... take the country forward, we will have to bring the truth out and face it," the former Parliamentarian said.

"Those who are objecting to this are driven by political motives and eyeing vote bank. They are being exposed on regular basis and it will continue to happen," Panda added.



Recently released The Kashmir Files, which depicted the story of the genocide and exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits, has already minted over Rs 300 crore at the box office. Notwithstanding the financial success of the movie, its altruistic mission to uncover the truth and let Indians know what their brethren suffered was highly appreciated.
