Da Vinci Code banned

Oh … I was just thinking today that why Islamabad is not having any Cinema… well it had two cinemas, one, NAFDEC, was closed down few years back, and Melody’s cinema was burnt. We used to go to NAFDEC for watching films like M-I-i, Eraser, Jinnah, and many others … but now when finally in Pakistan, Taj Mahal and Mughal e Azam were released, good we don’t have any cinema.

But good, now Federal Government has finally banned the screening and selling of THE DA VINCI CODE starring Tom Hanks, screen print of famous novel by Dan Brown. Government is also thinking to ban the book. Mainly, because of the things mentioned related to Hadhrat Eesa alayhe salat o wassalam (Jesus Christ) regarding his wife and blood-line.

I just saw today the DVD of Da Vinci Code, haven’t bought it yet, I was waiting for better and Full version, I should hurry, I guess!!!!!

Take carez!

    in my point of view,”Da Vinci Code” should be released.we can’t stop the freedom of expression.i just want to raise a point over here that when danish journalist create the cartoons of hazrat muhammad, Europe did not stand with the muslims and said that it is just the freedom of expression and no one can stop that.but now when same thing happens with the christian society they are standing against the freedom of expression.does it means that western countries can change the rules according to their own needs?
    please do discuss this aspect too.

    The movie got released on the box office, didn’t it? If such movie was be made in Pakistan the entire cast and crew would have been killed even before the first screening of the movie. How sad!

    The “molvies” are trying to snatch every freedom from us, who are they to decide what’s right and wrong for us? They even made an alliance with America during the Afghan War, because they were funded heavily. Now as they get no money, they are against USA, how about that! These people even got blogspot banned! How many countries can boast such a ban?

    They are dividing the people to gain power, now are a strong part of the government as well. Thanks to Zia-ul-Haq!

    In my opinion the move or the novel must not be banned, otherwise they will become more popular. Dan Brown has used reverse psychology here to get a worldwide famous, the guy even borrowed the idea.
