Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri is enraged that Wikipedia described 'The Kashmir Files' report as "inaccurate" and "connected with conspiracy theories." As a consequence, the online encyclopaedia edited the description and removed the phrase "connected with conspiracy theories." 

Agnihotri took to social media to explain his opinions on this gesture by Wikipedia.

'The Kashmir Files' recently celebrated its 50th day on the market. On May 1, Agnihotri uploaded a snapshot of The Kashmir Files' Wikipedia page. "It paints the early 1990s migration as a genocide, an idea commonly regarded false and connected with conspiracy theories," according to the description.

Here's what he wrote in his caption:

However, the description of 'The Kashmir Files' has since been changed by Wikipedia. It now says, 'It paints the early 1990s migration as a genocide, a widely held misconception."
