A Pakistani advocate M D Tahir has challenged the screening of the movie Khuda Kay Liye in the Lahore High Court with allegations that it promotes anti-Islamic values and argued that the movie attempts to disturb law and order in Pakistan.
In the movie, a joint venture of US, India and Pakistan, Indian actor Naseer-ud-Din Shah announces that a marriage between a Muslim women and Christian man is allowed in Islam, Tahir said.
The film, starring Shah, Shaan, Iman Ali and Fawad Khan, is Geo Films' project is aimed at reviving Pakistan's ailing film industry. It will open in all theaters across Pakistan tomorrow.
The film is about two brothers who are pop musicians in Lahore, one of whom gets radicalized under the influence of extremists, while the other goes to America and gets unlawfully detained after 9/11. It is the story of Mary (Maryam), a British girl of Pakistani origin, who is brought to Pakistan by her father and married off against her will.
