New Delhi – New Zealand’s Censor Board has banned the broadcast of The Kashmir Files, which was previously permitted. Some religious fanatical groups had opposed the film and demanded that the censor board not release it. The Censor Board then took this decision. Former New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, however, has opposed the Censor Board’s decision. He said, ‘Terrorism in all its forms, no matter what its source, should be exposed and opposed. This attempt at selective censorship would amount to one further attack on the freedom of New Zealanders and people worldwide’.

Peters added in a Facebook post, ‘To censor this film is tantamount to censoring information or images from the March 15th atrocities in New Zealand, or for that matter removing from public knowledge all images of the attack on 9/11’.
