Raees banned in Pakistan for showing muslims in bad light

Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees has been banned in Pakistan after the Censor Board found the content unsuitable for screening in the country. The content and theme was found to be objectionable as it shows muslims in bad light and undermines Islam.

“The portrayal of Muslims is negative and the film’s content undermines Islam, and a specific religious sect, portraying Muslims as criminals, wanted persons and terrorists” an official source in the censor board said.

The distributors of Raees, Hum Films had last week submitted the film to the censor board for clearance to release in the Pakistani cinema halls after the government allowed screening of Hindi films last week.

Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil were the first two movies to release in the country after the ban last year.

“Raees will not release in Pakistan according to a decision taken by the censor board today. It shows Muslims in very negative light and could lead to reactions from different sects and it is unsuitable for public screening” a source told PTI.

  • Very bad as all are they(Pakistanis) saints they do bad things as well.
    I think bcz ban Raees will have 30Cr less business in overseas very bad Pakistanis will repent more than anyone bcz Srk has many countries to release his movie it doesn’t bother him afterall he is a King.

  • India too have many sensitive Muslims who could also have protested if they saw anything GENUINELY wrong!
    Pakistan should stop acting as if its only them that are more pure and holy then other countries.
    Sad.
    75% of Pk movie industry revenue generated comes from screening of Hindi movies so let them just coordinate themselves and stop making myopic excuses.
