Former Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena told the Delhi High Court that she has not faced any discrimination based on her gender in the Indian Air Force on Thursday. 
Saxena maintained that the Air Force allowed her to serve the nation, including in the Kargil War and she will forever remain grateful for the opportunities given to her by the force.
All the submissions by Saxena were made in her affidavit, in a suit filed by the Centre, seeking an order of “a permanent injunction against the Netflix, Dharma Productions and others from broadcasting or releasing in theatres or any other digital platform the film Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl, without grant of no-objection certificate (NOC) from it”. 
According to the Centre, the film which was streaming on Netflix depicts the IAF in poor light, showing that the force is gender-biased, which is not correct.
Saxena said in her affidavit, “The Deponent (Saxena) does not claim that everything that is shown in the movie has happened with her in her real life. However, the deponent believes that the message sought to be conveyed through the movie is to motivate young women to join the Indian Air Force and, on a broader canvas, the aim is to inspire young women to pursue their dreams, not to doubt themselves and to work hard towards their goals,” through advocate Aditya Dewan.
She added that while she has no control over the exercise of “creative liberties” during the making of the movie, “it remains as fact that in so far as the deponent is concerned, at an institutional level, the deponent has not faced any discrimination based on her gender. The IAF rather allowed the deponent to serve the nation, including in the Kargil War.”
The retired officer said she has the utmost respect for IAF and cannot comment on the Centre of the force’s perception about the movie in question as everybody’s perception is different.
