NGO takes legal action against its depiction in film
After being banned in Pakistan on a appeal by JuD chief and 2008 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed that claimed the film contained “filthy propaganda” against him and his outfit, Phantom is being taken to court by healthcare NGO Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), according to a report in Hindustan Times.
According to a report in NDTV, the NGO has a strict no-guns policy at all its clinics and does not employ armed guards.
“None of our staff would ever carry a gun. Any portrayal that suggests otherwise is dangerous, misleading and wrong,” the report quoted MSF as saying.
However, Katrina Kaif, portrayed as an MSF employee in the film, is seen toting a gun in Phantom and even firing one in various scenes.
