‘Ostrich behaviour’

THIS refers to your editorial ‘Ostrich behaviour: disallowing films and video games’ (March 31). Having seen Zero Dark Thirty in a local Montreal cinema recently, I would request the Pakistan Censor Board to revise its decision and allow the film for public screening.

The reason is that the Pakistani people are mature enough to realise that it is a propaganda film endorsed by the CIA and the US security establishment. Censoring the film will only give it credibility which it does not deserve at all.

It is just a movie and should be treated as such. Facts are twisted and distorted to make the US public feel good about the entire incident of torturing prisoners(waterboarding aka enhanced interrogation tactics). Gov of Pakistan behves like it is still living in the 20th century. Today you cannot hide anything from anyone having a smart phone or computer or I-pad. Today, Ostriches are smarter than our leaders.
