Earlier on Thursday, Pakistan announced the banning of Indian films from its cinemas across the nation. Firdous Ashiq Awan, the special assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan on Information and Broadcasting, claimed this action was in retaliation to India”s abrogation of Article 370, which gave special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir and allowed it to have a separate constitution, a state flag and autonomy over the internal administration.
