Pakistan bans Indian film ‘Padman’ which is based on menstrual hygiene

Pakistan has banned India’s Bollywood film “Padman”, which highlight menstrual hygiene across the country.

Pakistan’s Federal Censor Board said it rejected the film distributor’s appeal to the release the film which stars popular actor Akshay Kumar.

The film directed by R Balki also stars actresses Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.

“We can’t allow our film distributors to import films which are against our traditions and culture,” FCB member Ishaq Ahmed said.

The members of Punjab Film Censor Board also refused to watch the film saying it is based on a “taboo subject” and outrightly rejected any clearance certificate to it.

“We can’t allow the screening of films on taboo subjects in our cinemas as it is not in our culture, society or even religion,” a member said.

Well-known Pakistani filmmaker Syed Noor said that there was a need to speak to the local film distributors and exhibitors about the films they import from other countries.

“Not only this film ‘Padman’ but I think even ‘Padmaavat’ should not have been released in Pakistan as it portrays Muslims in a very negative light,” Noor said.
