Pakistan hasn’t always been very happy with the movies we produce and has banned a few too many. The recent film to join the banned ranks is Kabir Khan‘s Phantom. Barely a deal that the Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan won hearts on both sides of the border not too long ago. According to Jamat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed and the Lahore High Court, Phantom contains "filthy propaganda" against Pakistan. But of course, this isn’t always the reason for a film to be banned. Sometimes, the movie fails to get the required clearances from the Pakistani Censor Board and sometimes it is because of "anti-Pakistani and anti-Muslim" content. Let’s take a look at the list of 10 banned movies in Pakistan and the reasons they didn’t particularly thrill our neighbors.
