Pakistani Court Bans Indian Film after Militant's Petition

Thursday, 20 August 2015 08:39 AM

ISLAMABAD (AP) — A lawyer for a wanted Pakistani militant leader says a court has banned an upcoming Bollywood movie that imagines his client being assassinated.

Lawyer A.K. Dogar says the Lahore High Court on Thursday ruled that the film Phantom should not be shown in Pakistan.

The ruling comes two weeks after Hafiz Saeed, a Pakistani with a $10 million bounty on his head over his alleged involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, filed a motion asking that the film be banned. He said it posed a threat to his life.

Saeed also argued that the film is Indian propaganda meant to hurt Pakistan's image.

The attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai left 166 people dead.

Phantom will be released in India on Aug. 28.
