Pakistan mulls to ban every sort of Indian cultural content

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that a policy is being formulated to ban every sort of Indian cultural content in Pakistan.

Talking to media outside the Parliament House in Islamabad on Thursday, she said that no Indian movie will be screened in Pakistani cinema.

Dr Firdous said that Pakistan will utilize all options for extending support to the Kashmiris in the wake of revocation of Article 370 by India. She said that efforts are being made to highlight the issue including consultations at the United Nations by Pakistan’s Representative Maleeha Lodhi, contact with heads of governments, and diplomatic engagements.

The special assistant said that the civil and military leadership have resolved to transform this challenge into an opportunity by effectively highlighting the Kashmir issue.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said that Pakistan has given a united stance through a unanimous Parliamentary resolution condemning the Indian act. She said that a clear message has been given that Pakistan will show no leniency on the issue and go to any extent.

Dr Firdous said that the decisions taken in the National Security Committee (NSC) on the issue are being implemented. She said that the Indian High Commissioner has been asked to leave the Country, and trade with India has been suspended.

The special assistant said that the international media and other neutral forums should be provided access to observe the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir. She urged the Pakistani media to play its due role for highlighting the Kashmir issue.
