Four documentary films - two on Kashmir, one on the suicide of Hyderabad scholar Rohith Vemula and another on the trouble in Delhi's prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University - have received a thumbs down from the Centre's Information and Broadcasting ministry for failing the "sensitivity" test. Ministry officials say they scrutinize documentary films on four particular parameters. They concluded that films in question were "sensitive in nature" and threatened the "integrity of the country", the officials said. The film-makers are up in arms, saying three of the documentaries were to be screened shortly at an international festival in Thiruvananthapuram.
