The writer and director of film “Maalik” has challenged the exhibition/screening of the movie in the cinemas in Sindh High Court.
The writer and director of a newly released movie “Maalik” Mr. Aashar Azeem has adopted a position by petitioning and said that the the ban is illegal.
He has also written in the application submitted to the court that the movie has been picturised and made by the co-operation of ISPR. There is nothing in the movie that is against the national interest.
It should be cleared that two days ago the federal government was banned the movie “Maalik” all around the Pakistan without telling any solid reason. But after that the Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting said through a notification that they have an authority to cancel the censor certificate of any movie with reference section 9 of an Ordinance 1979.
