LAHORE (Web Desk) – Federal government has banned a documentary film “Among the Believers” directed by Mohammad Ali Naqvi.
The documentary focuses on the Lal Masjid situation and apart from following Maulana Abdul Aziz and his network for five years it also contains those never-shared-before stories of people who stood up against extremist ideology.

The reason the Central Board of Film Censors has given in its notification for the ban is that Among the Believers “projects the negative image of Pakistan in the context of ongoing fight against extremism terrorism”, Dawn News reported.

Ironically, the documentary has been screened in 20 countries and has already bagged 12 awards.
