Kabir Khan's directorial 'Phamtom' has been banned in Pakistan. The ban was applied after a plea was filed against the movie by the JuD Chief and mastermind of Mumbai's 26/11 attacks Hafiz Saeed.
On 20th August the Pakistani Court banned the release of Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer 'Phantom' following a plea filed against the movie by Hafiz Saeed alleging that the film that's set on post-26/11 attacks, contains "filthy propaganda" against him and his outfit.
After hearing the arguments of Saeed's counsel and the government law officer, Lahore High Court judge Justice Shahid Bilal Hassan issued the order to ban the release of Phantom in the country.
This is not the first time when Indian movies have faced a ban in Pakistan. In the past, movies like 'Agent Vinod' and 'Ek tha Tiger' were also banned from being screened on the big screens. However, they are available in Pakistan in the form of CDs and DVDs.
