Many people are criticising the movie and arguing that it is not authentic. Three Hindu girls are compelled to convert to Islam and join ISIS after falling victim to terrorism, as told in the movie. The portrayal has not been well received by the Muslim community, who are protesting it and labelling it a propaganda movie.
‘The Kerala Story’s’ creators, however, are adamant that it does not target any particular faith but rather just illustrates terrorism and that no community should be offended by it. ‘The Kashmir Files’ is now airing a topic that is dividing the internet.
