This is an interesting article I read this morning with a few little interesting points in it. Firstly I had no idea that Pakistan had such things as porn cinemas. Bearing in mind how fundamentalist they seem to be over there I'm far more surprised at their existence than the fact that they get bombed. In fact I'd say that such an occurrence would be a pretty sure bet.
Secondly one of the quotes reveals a level of racism even within Pakistan between it's different ethnic groups. Commenting on the ladies performing in these films one man said "These are
not Pashtun women. These are Punjabi." Oh well, that's all right then.
But my favorite quote is from one of the managers of such a place, bemoaning the effect that bombings are adversely affecting his business, who said "People are afraid to come" Quite!
So much for the myth of the liberal professor
