Vivek Agnihotri Threatens to Sue Oxford Union
NEW DELHI, (ANI) – Filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, who is currently in Europe on a humanity tour, on May 31 accused the Oxford Union of “Hinduphobia” and threatened to file a lawsuit against them for cancelling his event.
The ‘Kashmir Files’ director shared an incident that took place, in which he mentioned that the ‘Hindu voice’ is being curbed. “Yet another Hindu voice is curbed at Hinduphobic Oxford Union. They have cancelled me. They cancelled Hindu Genocide and Hindu students who are a minority at Oxford Univ. The president-elect is a Pakistani. Please share and support me in this most difficult fight,” he tweeted along with the video.
“As you are aware that I am here in Europe on a humanity tour. This tour was decided because lot of prestigious places invited me like Cambridge University, Oxford University, the British Parliament, and a lot of places in Germany and the Netherlands. But yesterday, a very strange thing happened. When I reached Cambridge University, at the last minute, I was told that we cannot video record the event. Now, this is a 100 per cent curbing of freedom of expression. This happened because a few Pakistani and Kashmiri Muslim students protested it. These are genocide denials, they are fascists. This is perhaps because I support a democratically elected Government of India,” he said in a video message.
“They want to label us as fascists and Islamophobic. As if killing thousands of Kashmiri Hindus was not Hinduphobic, but the film on the truth is Islamophobic. They are not canceling me; they are canceling the genocide and Hindus. You must understand, Hindus are a minority in Oxford University, and this is the oppression of the minority,” he said.
He also slammed Oxford University for “hosting dictators and fascists including Bhutto’s son and many African radical extremists.”
Agnihotri further sought the support of the people as he is going to file a lawsuit against the Oxford Union.
“So please help me in this cause. I am filing a lawsuit against them. I am going to claim all the damages. Please support me and join me,” he added.
