He took to Twitter to share a screenshot of the page and wrote, “Dear @Wikipedia, You forgot to add ‘Islamophobia… propaganda… sanghi… bigot… etc’. You are failing your Secular credentials. Hurry, edit more.”
The Wikipedia entry mentions that the film ‘presents a fictional storyline centered around an exodus of Kashmiri Hindus’ and that it ‘depicts the early 1990s exodus to be a genocide, a notion that is considered to be widely inaccurate’.
