Pakistan bans "Da Vinci Code" over religious controversy
font size    

Pakistan has banned a controversial film "The Da Vinci Code", the culture minister said on Saturday.

Due to some controversial and fictional interpretations of Christian history, both the book and movie version of "The Da Vinci Code" have been the target of criticism by the Catholic Church.

Pakistan will not allow screening of the film and the authorities have been asked to take action against those shops, selling the films, Pakistani Culture Minister Dr G.G.Jamal said.

"The Da Vinci Code" is a 2006 Hollywood feature film based on the best-selling 2003 novel "The Da Vinci Code," from author Dan Brown.

The film entered major release in many other countries on May 18, with its first showing in the United States on May 19.
