Initially Federal Government has imposed¬† a ban for two weeks on screening of Indian films on Eid but now the news is that the ban period is cut short to one week only. The Federal Government has taken this step of banning the screening of Indian films during Eid to support the local cinema and films releasing on this Eid.”Keeping in view the importance of local film industry and exhibition facilities, the government has decided that screening of Indian movies shall be restricted for a period of one week in total, starting from Eid day on both Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Azha,” Danyal Gilani, Chairman, Central Board of Film Censors, stated in an order issued on behalf of the Ministry of Information Broadcasting, National History and Literary Heritage.
