IHC moved to ban 'Miss Veet Pakistan' beauty pageant
The petitioner's stance was that the TV show should be banned as it would promote Indian culture.
“This product [manufactured by the sponsor] aims at and advertises asking women to remove body hair to make themselves more sexually appealing to the opposite gender which is fundamentally shameful and against the injunction of Shariah,” Tribune Express quoted the petition.
“It [the pageant] would serve as a launching pad for beauty contests [that are] common in many western countries,” he submitted.
The program will harm the prevailing culture of Pakistani society, besides breaking family relations, he continued.
He highlighted that all TV channels have become "red light screen," which is damaging the culture of Pakistan, adding that fashion and modelling shows, TV serials and singing contests are not according to the norms of our society.
The court is yet to decide about the admissibility of the petition.
It is notable that the petitioner foundation looks after all cases of Abdul Aziz, who was suspended as khateeb of Lal Masjid in 2004 for allegedly supporting terrorism.
