“Pakistan failed to implement sharia law ( religious law) because no one wants it including the educated younger generations. People just talk about sharia and religion all the time in Pakistan. Bhai don’t be so hard-hearted,” read one comment under the Twitter post.
Some of the users said that children in Pakistan have grown up watching Bollywood movies and character that are being played by students. There was no vulgarity in the video and hence there is no issue in celebrating such events.
“Wese to be honest hum sab ye movies dekhte hue barhay hue hain. They all look pretty cute. Kuch vulgar ni tha kuch harmful ni tha. So itna koi barha issue ni nzar ni aa ra is main,” said one female user.
