PESHAWAR: Peshawar District Nazim Mohammad Asim Khan on Monday directed the authorities concerned to book organisers of ‘vulgar stage dramas’ in two cinemas of the capital city.

He also directed removal of signboards along the city roads for having objectionable pictures on them.

A statement issued here said the nazim wrote letters to the district administration and police high ups, ordering them to immediately cancel the NOC awarded to the managements of Sabreena and Aena cinemas for organising ‘vulgar’ stage shows.

The district nazim took the action when a Peshawar district council member, Malik Aman, complained to him that some parties from Lahore organised vulgar dances and stage shows at the two cinemas for three days. The complainant also showed videos of the shows to the district nazim.

In the letter to the SSP Peshawar Dr Mian Saeed, the district nazim asked to register FIR against the organisers of such shows.

He also directed the Peshawar Development Authority to remove signboards having objectionable pictures.
