A new DC movie calls Kashmir ‘disputed territory’ and has left leaving Indian media and fans irked on social media.
DC’s latest Superman movie ‘Injustice’ was released yesterday.
The animated film showcased Superman and Wonder Woman invading Kashmir.
The hero Superman describes ‘Kashmir’ as a disputed territory and destroys all the weapons of the Indian Army in the name of bringing peace.
And Superman declares Kashmir an arms-free zone.
Perhaps only a superhero could bring justice to the oppression faced by the residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
As expected, as soon as Superman’s deeds in the latest DC film came to light, Indians had started to trend hashtag #AntiIndiaSuperman on Twitter.
While a number demanded DC Comics, the producer Superman, not only remove this scene from the film but also apologise to India.
@DCComics Apologise to India for your malicious propaganda against Kashmir or face the wrath of a billion plus indians and trust our strength, you will not be able to bear the loss. #AntiIndiaSuperman— Ananya 🇮🇳 (@AnanyaLodh) October 20, 2021
Portraying Kashmir as a disputed region and Indian army as villain was an unethical conspiracy against India by @DCComics.Kashmir is & will always be an Integral Part of India.#AntiIndiaSuperman pic.twitter.com/3cnxN9PUtu— J. Om in Bharat (@J_Om_in_Bharat) October 20, 2021
So now comic writers write politics of world that they don't know?— bishal banerjee (@bishalb2008) October 18, 2021
I think not, this is a well planned deliberate attempt to showcase supremacy subtly to the young consumers who have no idea.
It's a no brainer who are behind such activities https://t.co/k1f6R6Pnta
DC is yet to comment on the situation.
However, in 2018, a similar situation was Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible Fall Out.
The film showed Kashmir as a disputed region, but, after India’s objection, the scene was removed from the film.
