Pakistan bans Indian movies screening in cinemas: Firdous Ashiq Awan

Islamabad (Staff Report/Agencies): Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said on Thursday that no Indian movie would be screened in Pakistani cinemas.


Talking to media outside Parliament House, Awan said a policy was being formulated to ban all kinds of Indian cultural content in Pakistan.

On Wednesday, Pakistan’s top civil and military leadership on Wednesday decided to suspend bilateral trade and downgrade diplomatic ties with India in light of New Delhi’s "unilateral and illegal actions" through which it abolished the special status for occupied Kashmir.

The decision was taken at the meeting of National Security Committee (NSC) in Islamabad, with Prime Minister Imran Khan in the chair, said a statement issued by the PM Office.

The meeting also decided to review the Pakistan-India bilateral arrangements, take the matter to the United Nations and observe the upcoming Independence Day on August 14 in solidarity with Kashmiris.

On the occasion, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed that all diplomatic channels be activated to expose brutal Indian racist regime, design and human rights violations. He directed Armed Forces to continue vigilance.
