Bhopal: Congress MP Digvijaya Singh on Saturday opposed the establishment of a ‘genocide museum’ for which Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has pledged land to ‘The Kashmir Records‘ director Vivek Agnihotri, saying the communal harmony of Bhopal cannot be disturbed.
Chouhan had told Agnihotri on March 25, 2022 that the film showed the pain and suffering of the displaced Kashmiri Pandit community and had promised government land for the establishment of a “genocide museum” to MP.
I am totally against the creation of a genocide museum in Bhopal. Will not let the communal harmony of Bhopal be disturbed. I oppose it, Singh, a Rajya Sabha MP, tweeted on Saturday morning.

Chouhan had planted saplings with Agnihotri and some members of the Kashmiri Pandit community who moved to Bhopal on Friday.
The world learned of the pain and suffering of the displaced Pandit families of Kashmir (through the film). Vivek Agnihotri has suggested that there should be a “genocide museum” in Madhya Pradesh. Our government will provide the land and the necessary aid for this, the chief minister had said.
