Muscat: A young Omani man's video has gone viral after he walked out of a movie theatre while watching a Bollywood movie that he felt was offensive to Pakistan.
Abdul Hameed Al Kiyumi took to the social media and recorded a video sharing his views about the film Uri: The Surgical Strike, that is being screened in theatres across Oman.
"We just left the cinema where we watched an Indian movie called 'The Surgical Strike'. My friends and I were all insulted by this movie because of how it offended the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. I imagined how it must have felt if a Pakistani was present," the Omani man said in the video.
"How can you describe Pakistan as a barbaric and terrorist country, to implant hatred in the heart of Omanis? We as Omanis have nothing to do with their politics, and so showing the movie in our country is unacceptable," the young man added.
