New Delhi: Pakistan’s web series ‘Witches’ has played its part all over the world. From the great story of the series to the great cast, everything is being well chosen. In this series, seeing the way each female character is made, they were all impressed. But in the country where the series took place, it is now banned as well.
Pakistan bans ‘witches’ series
Yes, Asim Abbasi directed web series ‘Witches’ has been banned in Pakistan. Recently, a video of this web series went viral on social media. In the viral video, Hina Khwaja is talking about existing sex and saying that she had to make many compromises to get a job. Now the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has banned the video based on it. But Pemera’s decision has become the butt of jokes on social media. People are making fun of Pakistan’s backward thinking in many ways. Artists associated with the series are also expressing their resentment against the decision.
Good or bad, #churails is a TV series. Those who don’t want to watch it don’t have to, but ‘banning’ freedom of expression and art is VERY regressive in 2020. Like banning anything has worked ever. If anything, I really want to see the series now. #PEMRAHoshMeinAao

Pakistan’s backward thinking is becoming a joke
Many tweets have gone viral on social media at the moment. Trolls are asked questions on the basis of which a good web series is being banned. User writes – good or bad, it’s a TV series. You won’t see what you don’t want to see. But banning shows very backward thinking. Nothing happens by banning. Now I will keep watching the series. Pakistani actress Sanam Saeed has also expressed displeasure. He writes – Banning dance ads, banning web series is not going to stop rape. How can we be Hippocrates. Everything happens just behind closed doors.
