IAS Officer To Be Showcaused ‘The Kashmir Files’ Tweets; What Did He Write?
Bhopal: An IAS officer will be asked to show cause by the Madya Pradesh government for posting ‘controversial’ tweets on the film ‘The Kashmir Files’.
State Home minister Narottam Mishra said Niyaz Khan’s tweets violated limits set for government officials.
“I have seen Khan’s tweets. This is a serious issue…nhe is crossing and violating the lakshman rekha (limit) set for government officials… the state government will issue a showcause notice to him and seek his reply,” Mishra told mediapersons on Wednesday.
Niyaz Khan, a deputy secretary with the MP Public Works Department (PWD), urged the makers The Kashmir Films to make a movie on the ‘killings of large number of Muslims across states’ in a series of tweets.
“Kashmir File shows the pain of Brahmins. They should be allowed to live safely in Kashmir with all honour. The producer must also make a movie to show the killings of large number of Muslims across several states. Muslims are not insects but human beings and citizens of country,” Khan posted.

He wrote that he was planning to write a book highlighting the ‘massacre of Muslims.’
“Thinking to write a book to show the massacre of Muslims on different occasions so that a movie like Kashmir Files could be produced by some producer, so that, the pain and suffering of minorities could be brought before Indians,” read Khan’s tweet.
Khan even urged the film’s producer to transfer all of the movie’s earnings for Brahmin children’s education and construction of homes for them in Kashmir.
This prompted director Vivek Agnihotri to seek an appointment with Khan for ‘exchanging ideas’.
The film, based on exodus and carnage of Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s, has already raked in over Rs 150 crore at the box office.
