Banned Pakistani Condom Ad

Pakistan’s media regulatory agency has banned a condom commercial starring a sultry Pakistani model after it received hundreds of complaints the ad was too racy.

The 50-second television commercial shows a Pakistani couple wondering why their neighbor’s new bride, the model and actress Mathira Mohammed playing herself, is working so hard to keep her husband happy. When asked about his secret, the neighbor smiles and holds up a pack of condoms made by Josh, which means excitement in Urdu.

    I think this ad is too much for the Muslim world and it should not come out in such way in TV’s, its natural for any that if some small kids ask what is this Advert is about, how can someone answer ?

      Rod Atkinson,

      According to a saying by Prophet Mohamed , go even to China in search of knowledge. That was what was needed 1,400 years ago. This drove the Islamic science for the first 300 years, with Philosophy and reason prevailing, until revelation took over, for Mullahs and Ulema hegemony.

      Today, in this internet age, no need to get to China.

      This is information and knowledge, but the Ulemas, Mullahs and Clerics will come up with some excuse like the Wahhabis and BBS.

      Ghazali Elevated Revelation above Reason and Facts and the Ulema Cheered. Natural philosophy (science) declined and Theology rose up and the status of Ulema.

        But sadly, the Prophet Muhammed didn’t know there is vast OIL beneath the sands of Arabia, After 1400 Years, When the western people came and told this to Saudi Arabs, they just refused claiming it is not mentioned in Kuran…

          Dawkins Tells Atheists To “Mock Religion With Contempt,” And Ravi’s

          In the 7th century, the Earth was either flat, or round. The Sun was going around the Earth as Joshua claimed in the Bible, and people thought there was only water underground. When the Tsar of Russia sold Alaska, he did not know there was oil underground either.

          The Arabs, the Persians and many others did not know there was Oil underneath.

            Amarasiri (or Muhammed Amarasiri)

            Hahaha… Islam only speaks of Full Submission to the Will of Master (God), ‘Submission’ means Slave, That is why Slave of Allah, That is why you people have names Muhammed and Grow Beard…

            Let the viewers know what is the current situation in Sri lanka as lot of viewers don’t know much about Kuran or JIHAD,

            There are basically 3 types of Jihad but we will have 4 types which I will explain below,

            CLUELESS JIHAD:-
            This is the innocent Muslims who have no clue of Islam and when they say its peaceful they mean it. And they dont possess anything against other Non-muslims and truly peaceful. These people will eat what they get and dont care much about Halal or anything.

            STEALTH JIHAD:-
            This is when Muslims are in MINORITY, then they will speak of Peaceful and will argue with Non-Muslims about Peaceful. (In Kuran it mentions about Taqyiyya which is where Muslims are allowed by God to Lie (it is not Sin) if some one criticize their Religion)But they will push for HALAL food, Sharia Law, Sharia Courts but Peaceful manner. They will behave peacefully but will try to add Islamic systems to Non-islamic country. At this time sad part is because they act as peaceful, even non-muslims will support them (What happening in Sri lanka now, also US, Thailand, Philipines etc)

            DEFENSE JIHAD:-
            This is when muslims are in some numbers and have resources to defend themselves, they will fight for Sharia Law and Sharia courts and do protests and speak openly against all other Religions and denounce all others as Kafirs and will tel they will go to HELL and Believers Muslims will go to Heaven, (Whats happening in UK and Many Europe Countries (funded by Saudi Arabia and Oil rich countries), Nigeria etc

            OFFENSIVE JIHAD:-
            This is when Muslims in Majority, and openly they can attack other Religions and denounce them, attacks openly happen, in some countries it is prohibited to constuct other religious temples and even to carry something based on their religion (Ex Saudi Arabia and many Muslim countries), they will enforce ‘Jizya Tax’ and non-muslims are 3rd class citizens (dhimmis) Hidden (Malaysia) or Openly (Indonesia, Pakistan) and so on…

            So Amarasiri, are you currently doing STEALTH JIHAD ???

          Dino,
          Who refused and where is the proof? Don’t talk non-sense. 1400 y before Prophet told his companions Arabia will be come one of the rich countries in the world in future. also he told there will be tallest buildings to come.May be that time like you fools might have laughed.
          many things which was mentioned in Quran already revealed and further research has been carried out since long ago.
          One more thing in future Arabia will have many rivers and will become a green environment…..this is also mentioned by Prophet. wait and see……………….before the world end many things should happen which has mentioned 1400y before. some are already happened……so wait and see………………..

    Pakistan birthrate is very high… Young teenage girls marry as young as 9 – 10 years old in rural areas of Pataans as per islamic law, this is very important to them.

      @Adfer- Islamic law– Sharia– does not state that girls should marry at the age of 9 or 10. If that were the case wouldn’t child marriage be practiced in ALL Muslim countries and not just in rural Pakistan?

      Regarding the ad, I agree there’s nothing racy about it in the least. Contraception is extremely important for family planning, HIV AIDS prevention, and so on. As PoV say, awareness is essential.

    If the Prophet advised Muslims to go even to China in search of knowledge why are so many Muslims not interested in education? Malala was shot for encouraging Afgan girls to receive education in school.A lot of Muslims are unwilling to send their daughters to schools. Why?Why?Why?

      Only a small percentage does not send their girls for higher education. If you really do a survey, you will be surprised. Most Muslim girls in Sri Lanka are qualified accountants, lawyers nd teachers. However, many of them give up their career once they are married.

      Punchisingho,

      Why? Why? Why? Hegemony! Hegemony! Hegemony! of the Ulema.

      1. Mullah, Ulema, Cleric hegemony for Muslims. It was a threat for the Hegemony. Go back to the Tribal Habits such as Wahhabi and Taliban Tribalism. These have nothing to do with Islam.

      http://www.islamicity.com/articles/articles.asp?ref=ic0601-2883

      However, the Prophet Prophet wanted people to actively learn and seek knowledge.

      The rise of Muslims to the zenith of civilization in a period of four decades was based on lslam’s emphasis on learning. This is obvious when one takes a look at the Qur’an and the traditions of Prophet Muhammad which are filled with references to learning, education, observation, and the use of reason. – See more at:

      http://www.islamicity.com/articles/articles.asp?ref=ic0601-2883#sthash.UWaZLae6.dpuf

      This is the reason why Islamic Science or Philosophy grew during the first three centuries after Prophet Mohamed. Then the religious scholars took over, and that was the beginning of the decline of Islamic Philosophy and Islamic Science, Education, Education and freedom of Women.

      Neil deGrasse Tyson, an American astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium, discusses how Islamic scholars contributed to the Islamic Golden Age and how over time independent reasoning (ijthad) lost out to modern institutionalised imitation (taqleed) present in the wider islamic society today.

      2. Even in Christianity, there was initial resistance by the Priests fir the translation of the Bible. Martin Luther and others translated the Bible, and some common people understood the errors of the Bible.

      @ Punchisingho

      Malala is CIA agent…..that topic is completely different. The Pakistan Taliban’s are funded by them too. The Taliban of Afghanistan and Pakistan is completely different. this is all world politics…need deep study to understand. Islam says people to get knowledge. They should learn about the universe. If Muslims don’t do that is not the problem of Islam. In Sri Lanka percentage wise Muslims are more educated than Buddhists.

      Very good question, They dont even allow women to wear what they want then how can you think they will allow for education, they think only MEN are superior and have feelings and WOMEN have no feelings, MEN can wear whatever they want, But WOMEN cant wear what they want…

      Please don’t bother reading Amarasiri as this guy always SPAM all the comments with Koheda Yanne Malle Pol type of comments. Alan on the other hand nicely puts all the BLAME on the WEST as if they have no sins in their hands.

    why pulling prophet to what Pakistan is today?? its just a failed state like bangladesh, so are the African countries . most of the muslim name is ruined because of the Arab world & the oil. and i guess religion should be separated from state to portray the role of politicians in ruining the country rather than religion itself. same for sri lanka

    Huh, these Pakistani’s are so backward when it comes to birth control. Saudis come to London and buy condoms by the lorry load for their off the kingdom activities. So are all other relatively more honest Muslims who go there. Only Pakistani’s in UK are not controlling births because they think they could convert Uk to a Muslim state by populating it with loads of displaced Paki children.

    This is the trouble.Some Muslims live in the stone age where the women are just child bearing machines.They should cover themselves from head to foot barring the eyes for only the man only to see in the nude. However their men can run riot and no qestions can be asked.
    Those days are over and what prevails now is due to the conduct of these foolish men
    THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR EDUCATED MUSLIMS TO COME FORWARD AND EDUCATE THESE ULEMAS MULLAHS AND SO ON AND STRIVE TO MAKE THE FLOCK BETTER.
    The recent seminar in UK and the interpretation of the Muslim Cleric that Infidels must be killed to go to heaven has exposed his ignorance and he had been made a fool.
