Pakistan Now Bans Pari Over Non-Islamic Values

 


Anuhska Sharma’s Pari which released yesterday has been receiving appreciation from all quarters, however, it has been banned in Pakistan. The film has been banned for promoting “black magic, some non-Islamic values and anti-Muslim sentiments”.

A Pakistan Central Board of Film Censors member said, ““Pari’s script, dialogues and storyline go against our Islamic values. The concepts within Islam have different ideologies about magic. This film stimulates the viewers in favour of black magic and promotes thoughts that are contradictory to our religion.”

“The film not only mixed Quranic verses with Hindu chants but also portrayed Muslims in a negative light as they were shown using Quranic verses to do black magic,” the member added. “Pari’s script, dialogues and storyline go against our Islamic values. The concepts within Islam have different ideologies about magic. This film stimulates the viewers in favour of black magic and promotes thoughts that are contradictory to our religion,” a senior member of the board said.

This is not the first time that an Indian film has been banned, of late Akshay Kumar’s Padman which talks about menstruation was banned too in Pakistan.
