Pakistan bans Anushka Sharma’s horror movie ‘Pari’ : Here’s the reason

Anushka Sharma’s new film ‘Pari’ has been banned in Pakistan, as it “promotes black magic, some non-Islamic values and anti-Muslim sentiments”, reported The Express Tribune.

Pakistan’s censor board also banned the Hindi horror film because it “reportedly contains objectionable sequences where Quranic verses have been used”, said another Pakistani news outlet Geo TV, quoting a cinema owner.

“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,” a source at Pakistan’s censor board, the Central Board of Film Certification, told Geo.

Further, the Pakistani censor board said the film seems to approve of black magic, which it said is un-Islamic.

“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 told the Tribune.

The Pakistan Film Distributors Association’s chairman, Chaudhry Ejaz Kamra, agreed with the country’s censor board’s decision.

“Any film that goes against our culture and Islamic history should be banned in Pakistan,” he said.
