Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has banned the condom's ad because it was vulgar. (Good).
I got it !
Well, most of the ads have no quality but according to them it was way cheap. Woman in that ad was portrayed as a sex object. However, I have had no idea that there was any condom's ad on telly, and it has been banned right after it on aired, until I came across this blog post .
The whole blog post was zero in on Mathira and how vulgar she is, and because of her the family planning has become a dirty thing!
After reading that post, I got the idea that Mathira is the one who manufactures condoms, and sells them. The whole responsibility of family planing is on her shoulders, right? And people are doing sex and reproducing babies because of her! In a net shell she was the mastermind behind that vulgarity.
Then came million dollar's line :
Mathira, maybe it is time to think about Pakistan and not just yourself. Your decision to take part in this farce has done us a grave disservice.
Now, what does Pakistan has to do with Mathir's taking part in condom's ad? What kinda harm she has done to Pakistan? Is her ad is the reason Pakistan is the most corrupt, overpopulated and underdeveloped country? Majority is illiterate because of Matira's vulgarity? We are no where on the map because she took part in that condom's ad.
I Googled for that most controversial and vulgar ad according to people and found it here.
(Hurry up, watch it before it vanishes from there as well. It is too damn hot, I am telling ya.)
First thing, it wasn't her ad. It was Josh 's condom's ad. She is a paid model, an entertainer. She is not on T.V to teach us contraception. Second thing, she will do exactly what her director will tell her to do
Now after watching it, I am laughing my ass off! Perhaps it is vulgar! I am morally corrupt so my two cents doesn't count in this regard.
Well, as much as I know ads aren't to educate people about contraception. For this, there is one thing call sex education. This particular ad's main purpose, and I reckon every ad's main purpose is to encourage people to buy their products, nothing more, nothing else, then PEMRA banned it because they found it vulgar. They didn't say they are banning it because Matiria is in.
This PEMRA, who bans movies, ads and websites is not from another planet. It is part of our society. We get upset about sex and all that jazz, don't we? And when they don't ban controversial stuff we say PEMRA is besharm. It has no shame.
Few days a go I also came across this post where another ET's blogger was comparing Ghanchakkar with Raanjhanaa. She was against the banning of Raanjhanaa though it doesn't matter much when any movie gets banned over here. Who watches it in cinema? Hardly 20%, and they do that for fun in cenipax. You know, going cenima is a vulgar thing.
But is there any comparison between these two movies? However, she was saying Pakistan's censor board is confused, instead of banning Raanjhanna which is family oriented movie, they should have banned Ghanchakkar which is vulgar.
I dunno how much Pakistan's censor board is confused but I am way sure we Pakistanis are very confused. Everything is vulgar, every woman is whore.
