While ‘The Kashmir Files’ was a blockbuster hit, Wikipedia claims, “The critical reception of the film has been negative with the acting thought to be compelling, but the storyline attracting criticism for attempting to recast established history and propagating Islamophobia.”

Reacting to this, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri wrote on Twitter, “Dear @Wikipedia, You forgot to add ‘Islamophobia… propaganda… sanghi… bigot… etc’. You are failing your Secular credentials. Hurry, edit more.”
