Pakistan censor board decide to ban an Indian Flim of Anushka Sharma’s New Movie “Pari“ for some religious reason. The horror film was being touted as the second big Bollywood release in Pakistan after Padmaavat but the ban ensures that it doesn’t get released in the country.
Mobashir Hasan Chairman said in his interview
There were scenes in the film that featured Hindu Mantars as well as Quranic verses to counter magic which is unacceptable to Muslims in Pakistan.
Surprisingly, the Censor Boards based in Karachi and Lahore found nothing objectionable in the film and it was passed with an Adult rating due to graphic violence.
The questions come from this circumstance are – in what limit is has the film been restricted everywhere throughout the nation when just a single of the three Censor experts had issues. On the off chance that Islamabad had issues, they ought to have restricted the film in the capital city rather than the entire nation however such is the heartbroken situation in Pakistan that whatever Islamabad chooses, applies over the entire nation.
This isn’t the principal film nor the last that Islamabad Censor people prohibited because of their powerlessness to rate a film. A year ago they restricted Naam Shabana after it was released and screened; they were the ones who remained against Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna for reasons that were past rational soundness. One expectation that the Government of Pakistan that is occupied in guaranteeing that silver screen turns into an industry in Pakistan sees these irregularities and makes a move against them before Islamabad ends up acclaimed as Banistan!
