Punjab govt goes after Hindu mythology cartoons
The thin edge of the wedge. ‘Hindu’ comics worry officials in Lahore.
I am reminded of Govindacharya's reading on this situation ... (Cartoon by - Bill Day; courtesy - cagle.com.).
LAHORE: The Punjab government has formed a committee which will present a report on the airing of cartoons depicting Hindu mythology and if they can be banned in Pakistan.
Even though Indian TV channels are currently off-air in Pakistan, several cable operators are broadcasting Indian content to meet the demands of their clientele.
A meeting of the committee was held in Lahore, which discussed ways to get these cartoons banned in Pakistan. (via Punjab govt goes after Hindu mythology cartoons – The Express Tribune).
How deep is your love …
I can’t quite believe these guys. Are they feeling threatened by ‘Hindu’ comics? Is this how strong the idea of Pakistanis? How insecure can one get! The comments on the newspaper’s web-site (linked above) post are very interesting.

I am reminded about an interview with Govindacharya (earlier of the BJP), in exactly the same context, who claimed that well-springs of culture run deeper than commonly believed. I am beginning to wonder …
Was Govindacharya right after all!
