A few video journalists recording the episode were warned by the policeman. The UP police, however, tried to offer excuses over the incident, saying the incident might have taken place due to the ‘black flag ...

'The Muslim identity of the family appears incidental to the subject of the film...''The self-sacrificing, suffering mother film could have belonged to any religion.''The abusive father, who prefers his son to his daughter, could have followed any religion.''That the Muslim household is remarkably free from religious symbolism is also the strength of the film,' feels Mohammad Asim Siddiqui.

WATCH: Pakistani ad defining what freedom means to women drives the point home 16.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
India and our neighbour Pakistan celebrated their 71st Independence Day with much fervour in the past two days. As the occasion marked the festival to honour our freedom from British Raj, an ad that went viral asked what exactly is the meaning of this Azadi we got after years of struggle. Made by a fashion brand in Pakistan, the viral advertisement begins with asking a question, "Azadi hoti kya hai?" (What is freedom?).   We see women playing cricket which was significant since former Pakistani cricketers like Waqar Younis had a conservative opinion about women playing the game during recently concluded  ICC Women's World Cup 2017. There is one girl practising her dance move, another one scratching the record in a club. There is one more girl, wearing a hijab while doing mechanic work. These women represent something and drive the point home when throughout the video, it gives various yet equally valid answers. Check out the ...
