ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority today (Sunday) has approached social media platforms for the removal of trailers regarding a “sacrilegious” film titled “Lady in Heaven”.
In a statement, the authority said, “Keeping in view different reports regarding the movie and its sacrilegious content, social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, have been directed for immediate blocking of all content related to the said movie from their platforms.”
It said that so far, 336 links containing promotional material of the movie have been reported to the different social media platforms. The movie has yet to be released. It has been written by Sheikh Al-Habib and directed by Eli King.
The film is about an Iraqi child who learns the importance and power of patience. After losing his mother, he finds himself in a new home, where his loving grandmother narrates the historical story of Lady Fatima (AS) and how her suffering as the first victim of terrorism spun out of control into the 21st century.
According to executive producer Husaain Ashmere, in accordance with Islamic tradition, during the making of the film no individual represented a Holy Personality.
“There are 250 films on Jesus Christ, 120 films on Moses, 80 about the other prophets, 40 films on Buddha and nine films on Mary, there are none about the life of Lady Fatima (AS), the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH),” he told.
