‘Partition: 1947’ not to be screened in Pakistan

According to the reports, ‘Partition: 1947’ which deals with the bloody line drawn between India and Pakistan by lord Viceroy, has been banned in Pakistan. ‘Misrepresentation’ of Muhammad Ali Jinnah is stated to be the reason behind this ban. The Sindh Film Censor Board deemed it unsuitable by stating that “the political narrative contradicts the national interest of Pakistan.” Talking on the same matter, board’s secretary Abdul Razzaq Khuhawar said, “Although the character only appears in a few scenes as the film mostly revolves around Lord Mountbatten, the actor didn’t look like Jinnah at all. If you had seen it, you couldn’t tell it was Jinnah. Otherwise, there were no issues with the film.”
