    This was the original article---

    Srinagar, Oct 8: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah slammed Bollywood director Vishal Bharadwaj for his recent movie -- Haider.

    Despite being a movie freak, Abdullah claimed that he was upset as the director presented the half truth about Kashmir. "After watching your new movie Haider I felt unhappy, not with the actors' acting, but with the way you have adopted the 17th century play Hamlet with the Kashmir theme," wrote Abdullah. Abdullah was unhappy as Bharadwaj's movie showed the dark side of Indian Army.

    He chided, "I would like to pray to God that your movie should have an iota affect on the viewer's mindset about the Indian Army; or else your movie will certainly tarnish their image." Speaking about terrorism and militancy, Abdullah wrote, "Mr Vishal Bharadwaj, there has never ever been any militancy in Kashmir but terrorism."

    Continuing his statement, Abdullah wrote, "According to the Oxford dictionary Militancy means : Favoring confrontational or violent methods in support of a political or social cause. Terrorism means: The unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims."

    Abdullah's statement against Bharadwaj ignited the controversy which has been emerged over Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor starer movie Haider. Recently, it was claimed that people were upset with the movie as it has depicted Indian Army's image in a negative way.

    Leaving a message for Bharadwaj, Abdullah also urged the Bollywood director to "direct a movie which will show the Kashmiri Pandits' plight and then leave it to the viewers to decide which story is correct."

    Hindu temple is depicted as devil's den and hindus can do nothing !! vegetarians...

    Kashmiri pandit groups on Tuesday sought a ban on the recently-released Bollywood film Haider as they felt a song Bismil had portrayed the ancient Sun Temple (Martand Temple) of Kashmir as a devil's den and hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus all over the world.

    The film is directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and co-written by a Kashmiri author Basharat Peer.

    The All Parties Migrants Co-ordination Committee (APMCC), an amalgam of different Kashmiri Pandit gropus, staged a protest in Jammu against the screening of the film.

    The committee also accused Bhardwaj of conspiring to 'denigrate the 1,700-yearold Hindu temple and sought a ban of the film. They also demanded an unconditional apology from the producer and director of the film and questioned how the Censor Board of India and the Archaeological Survey of India had cleared the film.

    "By allowing shooting of a film inside the temple and then depicting as the devil's den is intolerable. We demand immediate deletion of the song or the re-shoot of the entire sequence," members of the APMCC said and threatened to launch a nationwide agitation against the film maker if their demands were not met. "We will not tolerate religious incursion under the garb of artistic freedom," they said.

    The committee plans to issue a legal notice to the producer, CBFC and ASI for 'defaming an ancient Hindu temple and hurting religious sentiments of Hindus.'

    If the CM didn't really make these statements, why are they here? No source or URL....where is the responsibility in reporting?

    Haider is a disgusting proof of the existing anti-India lobby using soft media to influence people and weaken India through entertainment.

    Romanticization of terrorists and Muslims who slaughtered the pandits and our community has reached a new low.

    So much for the 'secular and neo-liberal' outlook.
