font size    

Describing both the novel and film "The Da Vinci Code" as against the religious sentiments of Christian community, a Pakistani minister on Friday asked the government to confiscate the novel copies and ban the film's exhibition.

The material of "The Da Vinci Code" novel and film are against the religious sentiments of Christian community especially the Catholic Christians, said Pakistani Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Dr. Sher Afgan, according to the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan.

The Pakistani government must take a serious notice of it and ban its exhibition throughout the country, the minister was quoted as saying.

Being outcome of "an effort to explore certain aspects of Christian history" claimed by its author Dan Brown, "The Da Vinci Code", a bestseller with some 50 million copies sold worldwide, has generated much controversy among religious people. The novel has been adapted to a film by Hollywood recently.
