No decision yet on NOC for feature film Padman


ISLAMABAD, Feb 11 (APP):The decision to issue an No Objection Certificate (NOC) by the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting, National History and Literary Heritage is yet to be taken on the release of a foreign feature film “Padman” as the film has not yet been pre-viewed by the Central Board of Film Censors, said a press release issued Sunday.

It said “The decision to grant NOC to the subject film will be based on the merit and criteria of the CBFC not vexatious, false and irresponsible political motives, being created on various media platforms on the back of the film.”
It is advisable to maintain principles of integrity whilst making statements on any issues, not just ones pertaining to the Government of Pakistan.
It said “Good values are the foundation upon which we will build a prosperous Pakistan, not upon a decision of releasing a solitary film.”
