Because they fear, public will thin the Indian way.. The freedom of speech to women, their rights, development, is all very fascinating to women. ..not only good story and romance.. The govt is dominated by clergy and taliban thoughts.. They do not want their women folks to take clues from free India. So they stop Indian films..

The voice of a common Pakistaani is either suppressed, pacified, or crushed by the fanatic Govt. or the extremists organisation.....

Indian films were banned from being screened in Pakistan following the 1965 war. Even though the official ban had existed since 1952 in West Pakistan and since 1962 in East Pakistan, it was put into force more strictly after the war. This ban was imposed due to political reasons.

Banning anything; certain types of clothes, books, movies, religious outfits, out of the norm ideas etc never prevented it from being adopted anyway
