Indian films corrupting our young: Pakistani lawmakers
Pakistani lawmakers have complained that Indian films have “flooded” the local markets and are “corrupting the minds of the younger generation”.
But the government has said that the country’s film culture would die if it barred the screening of Bollywood productions.
“Children are now incorporating Indian words and terminologies in normal conversation,” complained lawmaker Tahira Aurangzeb of the main opposition PML-N party.
The lawmakers also objected to illegally imported foreign films “overflowing” the Pakistani markets.
