Akshay Kumar’s PadMan has become a hit in the nation, what with menstruation and its hygiene being a taboo.
With a film based on such a topic, not only the industry but also the celebrities are coming out and talking about the problems associated with the taboo and how it shall be broken.
On the other side is our neighboring country Pakistan that has banned the R. Balki directorial strangely. Not only the decision is receiving flak from Indians but also from the people of Pakistan. Take a look:

Banning PadMan in Pakistan is another one of those illogical things that simply affect the business of cinemas in Pakistan.
Menstruation is a fact of life, and bringing it to mainstream consciousness is neither immoral nor un-Islamic.

Insecurity, illiteracy & double standards of #Pakistani filmmakers who’re okay with dirty raunchy item numbers but consider “unislamic” to film a social awareness topic of #menstruation on #WomenEmpowerment
