Quoting 777236ER (Reply 6): Iraq can be invaded under the guise of 'spreading democracy', yet the West is more than happy to be friendly to a country run by a military leader who came to power in a coup d'etat?
Yeah Pakistan ought to be be on notice that if they don't let our toops scour every inch of their country to find OBL; they'll get a present that requires SPF 10,000,000 to enjoy.

The Difference between Saddam & Musharraff is that One said Yes to GWB.
Quoting TRVYYZ (Reply 9): It is banned in a few states in India too
why blame Pak, we too have a notorious reputation of banning books and movies pertaining to every religion on Earth. All voters should be happy.
I believe we were among the first ones to ban Satanic Verses.

Quoting Nancy (Reply 4): I think it's really interesting that they would also ban something offensive to (some) Christians. I guess I didn't exoect them to be that fair about religions.
Interesting somebody's not bashing Seeing the response though, you are dammned either way if you are Pakistan, given the picture media gives. Oh well I am not there so I can't speak about the mood there.
Quoting TRVYYZ (Reply 9): The Pakistani muslims consider Jesus as a prophet in their religion and hence banned the movie, nothing really to do with Chritianity, even though they seem to take an undeserved credit for it.
I thought you were more educated about Islam. Anyway its offensive to Christians because they believe he being the Son of God didn't marry etc. Islam believes Jesus was just another human being a Prophet of God hence nothing wrong in the theory of Jesus marying and having children. So there is NOTHING in it thats offensive to Islam other than the fact that Islam prohibits insulting other religions.
My knowledge of Islam is limited as I am a Catholic.
I am sure if the movie was about defaming a Hindu god, Pakistan wouldn't ban it and India would BAN it. I don't see one being better than the other.
As a personal opinion, I don't quite appreciate the idea of selling Gods of any religion for making quick money. It is cheap and similiar to other "cheap" trades. At the same time, I am not going to protest about it as it doesn't affect me directly.
The below link shows that the Muslims themselves were not too happy about the code. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNew..._060603/20060603?hub=Entertainment "Islam teaches us to respect all prophets of Allah mighty, and degradation of any prophet is tantamount to defamation of the rest," Minister for Culture Ghulam Jamal was quoted as saying by the Associated Press of Pakistan.
