“Maalik” ban unjustified,stirs debate on freedom of expression

KARACHI -UNS : A sudden ban on Urdu feature film “Maalik” by the federal government, three weeks after its nationwide release,is unjustified and  has stirred a new debate on freedom of expression on social media.

“Maalik”, the film produced, penned and directed by “Dhuwan” famed Asher Azeem Gill, has been declared as “uncertified” in the whole of Pakistan with immediate effect, according to a notification issued by the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage today.

No reason has been specified for the unusual decision, but the film has been accused by some quarters of promoting ethnic racism and showing politicians in bad light.

People turned to social media to have their say on the issue. Some welcomed the ban, while others described the move as contrary to freedom of expression.
