The nation has made a pledge that it will go to the cinema theatres of the country to watch the ISPR-produced serial Ehd-e-Wafa in an effort to show to our nemesis across the border that we, as a nation, are not afraid of the Coronavirus.
“This is not a TV series, this is an opportunity to prove a point,” says Laeeq Haider, a resident of Lahore. “An opportunity to prove to the Indians that the nation that they are thinking of squaring off against aren’t afraid of some silly little flu.”
“Yes, and of course, it is also a TV series.”
The nation’s cinema theatres are also responding positively to the online pledges made by citizens.
“We hope we are able to entertain all of our patriotic clients and customers,” said Sahir Butt, CEO of the Universal Cinemas Group. “It is only when people like these forget minor inconveniences like pandemics and what have you, does one see the physical manifestations of abstract concepts like patriotism and duty.”
“Am I going to personally watch it, you ask,” he said, in response to a question. “Of course not. It’s a germfest in these halls. We only clean the popcorn out after every show.”
