Some cinema owners in Pakistan have decided not to screen Indian movies in the wake of Indo-Pak tensions along the Line of Control (LoC). According to sources, the film distributors would make an official announcement in this regard today. Two Pakistani soldiers embraced martyrdom when Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC) early on Thursday morning. The unprovoked firing at the LoC in Kel and Lipa sectors began at 2:30 AM and continued till 8:00 AM, ISPR said. The unprovoked fire was painted as a surgical strike by senior Indian officials, in a move apparently aimed to satisfy the public. "India conducted a surgical strike at the Line of Control on Thursday to prevent terrorists from attacking Indian soil," said India's DGMO Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh at a press conference in New Delhi, according to Indian media.

Pakistan rebuffed the claims with the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) saying, "There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross-border fire initiated and conducted by Indian forces which is an existential phenomenon". Of late, tensions soared high between the two nuclear-armed adversaries over occupied Kashmir and an attack on Indian army's brigade headquarters in Uri, which left 18 soldiers dead. The Uri Attack has led to the ban of Pakistani artists in India. Yesterday, Atif Aslam, whose concert organised by Koncept Entertainment in Gurgaon was scheduled to take place on October 15th at Leisure Valley park in Gurgaon Sector 29, was called off. Indian extremists have also threatened other Pakistani artists and asked Bollywood directors to ban artists from across the border.
