Khokhar went on saying that “The committee will not come under anyone’s pressure. The parliament will exercise its authority.”

“We should not come under pressure of those parties who held Islamabad hostage twice.”
It is pertinent to note that Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) was the first party that has raised objections against the film.
