Rashneek thanked you for your earlier mail and called it a positive step. The transcript you provided indeed had some interesting views being expressed.
But, you are intent on provoking further exchanges, arn't you Shaina? Your earlier stated desire to "calm anxieties" was just a lie.
My interest is right now centered over your statement:
"..... all the viewers in the room (that watched the films) turned out to be sympathetic and supportive of azadi and self-determination for Kashmir...."
Shaina I presume you have no objection on being quoted that:
"According to Shaina Anand, she alongwith Ashok Sukumaran, Saeed Mirza, Abhay Sardesai, Nancy Adajania, Shilpa Phadke, Nikhil Chopra and all the others present at the 15th Aug, 2007 screening of Sanjay Kak's film Jashn-e-Azadi are 'supportive of azadi and self-determination for Kashmir"

If it is a positive step, then why are you so triumphant and committed to
getting screenings of JeA stopped. For the past 3 days you've been going on
about a tit for tat rhetoric that has moved from screening vs screening to
making us (the few who are really bothering to digest all this bile) imagine
vile and twisted role playing games.
Just to get some facts straight, all the viewers in the room (that watched
the films) turned out to be sympathetic and supportive of azadi and
self-determination for Kashmir, the apathetic plight of Kashmiri Pandits
portrayed in the first film, (and known to us) notwithstanding.
'Critical discussion' does not mean they hate the film and the filmmaker.
They are individuals with a free will just like yours, and they are engaging
in a conversation with the filmmaker. Try that you wont.
Please do screen the film you chose to promote again and let others do the
same. What is it you fear?
