Indian filmmaker and author, Vivek Agnihotri is scheduled to visit Rutgers University, one of most premier universities of the United States of America to deliver a lecture on the subject of the genocide of Kashmir Pandits in the valley. The Islamists and Left-wing activists have ganged up to threaten and disrupt Agnihotri’s event.

Filmmaker Agnihotri, who is known for his bestseller book ‘Urban Naxals’ is expected to speak on a topic – ‘The Untold Story of India’ at Rutgers University on Thursday, in which he will be presenting facts regarding the Hindu’s Genocide unleashed by Islamic terrorists in Kashmir during the 1990s.

However, it seems that the pro-Pakistan propaganda machinery is troubled and upset after Rutgers University invited filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri to deliver a talk to dispel pro-Pakistan propaganda on Kashmir issue. The pro-Pakistan Islamists and Leftists seem to have joined hands together to showcase their intolerance against filmmaker Agnihotri, who are now demanding the cancellation of the event.

Sylvia Chan-Malik‏, who claims to be an Associate Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies Rutgers University was the first to express her intolerance against the event. Claiming that she was a strong proponent of free speech, Malik said that she was also a strong proponent of bringing speakers to university who models intellectual rigour and integrity.

She went on to play jury against Agnihotri stating that the speaker had neither rigour nor integrity. I wish someone had advised against it, she tweeted.

Another troll account – StandwithKashmir, which resorts in anti-Indian propaganda, alleged to be part of Pakistan propaganda machinery went on to make false claims against Vivek Agnihotri stating that he was an Islamophobe and a sexual predator.

The pro-Pakistani handle went on question Rutgers University for inviting Vivek Agnihotri to deliver a speech. It also urged Rutgers University and all other campuses to rescind their invitation given to Agnihotri for delivering a speech.

“Agnihotri, a filmmaker, is in the US for his #Kashmirunreportedtour, which is meant to provide propaganda for the Indian state, currently being run by a Hindu Supremacist regime which has placed 8mil Kashmiris under siege and overseen a surge in violence against minorities,” the Islamic troll claimed.

Another troll account demanded the arrest of Vivek Agnihotri and also dreamt about the filmmaker being prosecuted in US federal court for ‘promoting violence against minorities’ in India. The pro-Pakistan account said Agnihotri was a member of India’s Nazi paramilitary group of RSS.

Despite all the hatred and intolerance against filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who intends to present the facts on Kashmir, there exists a silver lining. The Hindu students from Rutgers University have stood firm regarding their invite to Agnihotri and have not bowed down to the left-wing and Islamists nexus that is trying hard to disrupt the event.

According to a Facebook Post by columnist Shefali Vaidya, the Hindu Students Council have been facing a lot of hatred from other students, professors as well as Kashmiri Muslim organisations for organising the event. The students expressed fear as they have been at the receiving end of hatred.

The Rutgers students, however, seems to have not yielded to the Islamists and the left-wing propaganda, but instead have decided to fight this nexus. In doing so, they have urged the Indian community members to stand in solidarity with them and invited them to participate in the event.
