The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri responded to a tweet by an IAS officer in Madhya Pradesh over the latter’s request to donate all the earnings of his film to charity.

Niyaz Khan, on Sunday tweeted that the director should donate all the film’s earnings towards the education of the children of the Kashmiri Pandits as well as construction of homes for them in Kashmir.

"Income of Kashmir Files reached 150 crore. Great.People have given a lot of respect for Kashmiri Brahmins' feelings. I would respect the film producer to transfer all earnings to the Brahmin children's education and construction of homes for them in Kashmir. It will be a great charity," the IAS officer had said.

Niyaz Khan holds the post of deputy secretary in the Madhya Pradesh Public Works Department. He has also authored seven books, including Talaq Talaq Talaq (about instant Talaq) and Be Ready to Die, on the 2014 genocide of Yazidis by the Islamic State.

Vivek Agnihotri replied to the IAS officer by saying that he would be visiting Bhopal on March 25.

"Please give us an appointment so we can meet and exchange ideas on how we can help and how you can help with the royalty of your books and your power as an IAS officer," the director said in a tweet.

In an earlier tweet, the IAS officer remarked that since The Kashmir Files is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, the movie’s directors and producers should also make a movie to show the ‘atrocities’ that Muslims have been subjected to in parts of the country.
