Zee5 is the first online streaming platform that has enlisted local Pakistani directors and actors to create an entire lineup of original content, which will then be released over a certain period of time. Five original Pakistani series were set to broadcast on Zee5. One of them was recently released under the name ‘Aik Jhooti Love Story’. It is a romantic, socially relevant drama by Mehreen Jabbar, which was getting recognition and appreciation from viewers, but the audience in Pakistan won’t be able to watch it anymore.

People on twitter really wanted to experience the show but are unable to watch it.

People on twitter have termed this ban as a curb on freedom of expression. They argued that due to strict censorship in the country, the local shows can’t talk about certain topics.

People showed disappointment over the ban of Zee5 via their tweets.
