LAHORE: Justice Shahid Bilal Hassan of the LHC will take up on Monday the petition of Jamatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed challenging exhibition of an upcoming Indian movie “Phantom” in Pakistan.

Through Advocate A K Dogar, Mr Saeed states in his petition that the film contains venom against Pakistan and the JuD.

He said apparently the film is about the 2008 Mumbai attacks and global terrorism.

He says the film contains filthy propaganda against Pakistan using global terrorism as a pretext.

He prays to the court to ban the exhibition of the film in the country for its “anti-Pakistan” content.
