After downgrading diplomatic ties, parody country Pakistan bans Indian airing Indian ads, confiscates Indian movie CDs

It is rather amusing to know that Pakistan, which exports donkeys to China and Islamic terrorists to other parts of the world, is still stuck in the era of Compact-Disks (CDs) at a time when other countries have moved on to flash drives and cloud storage networks.

The parody country Pakistan, which sends its artists to seek gainful employment in India, has now decided to put a ban on Indian movies and the airing of advertisements for India-made products on television channels in the wake of tensions after India revoked Article 370 that gave separate status to Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the reports, Firdous Ashiq Awan, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information announced the government’s decision to ban Indian movies and advertisements of Indian products.

“We have banned Indian advertisements and launched a crackdown on CD shops to confiscate Indian movies,” said Firdous Ashiq Awan, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information.

She said that the Interior Ministry had already started a crackdown on Indian movies in Islamabad and it would be expanded to other parts of the country soon in collaboration with the provincial governments. “Today the Interior Ministry raided some shops in Islamabad and confiscated Indian movies,” said Awan.

It is rather amusing to know that Pakistan, which exports donkeys to China and Islamic terrorists to other parts of the world, is still stuck in the era of Compact-Disks (CDs) at a time when other countries have moved on to flash drives and cloud storage networks.

“No Indian film will be screened in any Pakistani cinema. Drama, films and Indian content of this kind will be completely banned in Pakistan”, Awan added.

Last week, Firdous Ashiq Awan had said that all kinds of Indian content have been stopped and PEMRA (Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority) was directed to step up its vigilance in this regard along with actions against the sale of Indian DTH instruments.

PEMRA, in an official statement released on Wednesday, said that the “appearance of Indian characters on Pakistani TV screens aggravates miseries of Pakistanis who are perturbed over Indian atrocities on Kashmiri brethren.”

After India abrogated Article 370, Pakistan had unilaterally decided to downgrade the diplomatic ties and had expelled the Indian envoy to Islamabad. It had suspended bilateral trade and reviewed all bilateral treaties and arrangements beginning with suspension of the peace train, Samjhauta Express and banning Indian films in Pakistan.

Considering Pakistan itself was once part of undivided India, most of the Indians are looking forward and hopeful that the parody country bans itself, which will instil a long time peace not only in the region but across the world.
