You can now watch Inshallah, Football on Netflix!
Basharat is an 18 year old soccer player coached by a gritty couple from South America. He has been selected to play in Brazil.
This is his big ticket out of a state ravaged by years of brutal insurgencies — except he is being denied a passport by the government of India. Basharat’s father, Bashir, was a militant who surrendered and spent years in jail, endured torture at infamous interrogation centers of the same government.
According to the unwritten rules in Kashmir, an ex-militant’s family is almost never granted a passport — that document of belonging of a country that claims Kashmiri identity as part of its own. Inshallah, football is about the difficulty of dreaming in Kashmir.
