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.

Intrepida 5 years ago movies about dacoits like phoolan devi were made but I dont think people of that state or community were offended because they are not like that! This movie is theoretical and about a terrorist, i dont understand why people who are not terrorists are getting offended! if you arent in the business of terrorism, you shouldnt be offended by a movie about a terrorist...2015-08-21 08:25:19

"Good hearted" Pakistanis are sick and tired of being tagged as terrorists!
The release of bangistan was stopped or the actors playing the roles required extra protection coz some " good hearted" hindus were offended as to how they could be portrayed as terrorists but these people portray the whole nation, race, religion as a terrorist! How is that fair

Intrepida 5 years ago I doubt that two people in Pakistan represent the entire nation and culture of Pakistan, one of which is a terrorist; In most nations, alleged terrorists are captured and placed in jail...I dont know why good hearted Pakistanis are getting offended that a movie is made about a terrorist
