Banning a play

ISLAMABAD: The ban on Ajoka’s Burqavaganza is absurd, as pointed out in your newspaper. The play deals with extremism and intolerance. And ironically, the ban actually proves the point it is trying to make — that our society remains in denial.

One fails to understand why the Senate did not take notice when armed students of Jamia Hasfsa took over a children’s library in Islamabad in 2007. Or when a promotional event in Karachi involving the shaving of beards to promote a brand of razors was disrupted by zealots?
