What was the reason for the protest?

It was around 11:30 am when over 200 BJP workers protested outside Arvind Kejriwal’s house on Link Road near IP College.

Speaking in the Delhi Assembly on March 24, Kejriwal allegedly termed the massacre of Kashmiri Pandits as false. Kejriwal also claimed while several BJP governments are promoting the film and making it tax-free, the filmmakers are making millions from it.
