In such circumstances, we can not allow a film whose name, subject and story are not acceptable yet in our society. "Central censor board also raised objections on the scenes and dialogues of the films that are very sensitive", a member of the board told The Express Tribune.

While there were protests in various parts of India against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, Pakistan censor board displayed great enthusiasm in releasing the movie in the country.

The members of Pakistan Censor Board refused to watch the movie saying it is based on a "taboo subject" and outrightly rejected any clearance certificate to it.

Directed by R Balki, the film is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist who first designed a very low-priced sanitary napkins for women.

A Pakistani woman wrote on Twitter as well, "Banning padman in Pakistan just shows how we havent mentally progressed as a nation".

"We can't allow our film distributors to import films which are against our traditions and culture", FCB member Ishaq Ahmed said.

Balki, who is now in scenic Maheshwari, the city in Madhya Pradesh, where Pad Man was shot, says it is a shame that a film is being seen in a negative light, since it endeavours to eradicate the stigma towards menstrual hygiene.

Still, this Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte film is bringing in good moolah for its subject and what needs to be seen is where does it eventually land up. The film deals with menstrual hygiene.

Ammara Ahmad, a writer from Lahore not only blasted the decision to ban Pad Man in Pak, but even accepted Pad Man challenge to lend her support for the film.
