Most people are unaware of the real meaning of Jihad, which we are bringing in front of people through this film. Jihad means to kill the anger and the devil within you, not to kill innocent people by taking up guns in its name.
The speciality of the film Jihad, directed by Rakesh Parmar, is that Rakesh did the shooting of the film in the locations of Kashmir, where the ordinary person can't visit. Shooting for Jihad was done in sensitive sites like Kupwara, Chararesharif, Doodh Ganga, Yusmarg. The film was shot with the local artists by giving them workshops.
