However, what Muslims then discovered was that the character’s name is a synonym of ‘Dajjal’, a false prophet in Islamic theology.

Moreover, Netflix has denied blocking fans who have spoken against the new series. Netflix claims that: “There’s no truth to this story we have not blocked fans.

Nonetheless, Muslim subscribers have called for a boycott of Netflix!

On the other hand, others have a different opinion and say that they are not going to boycott the service provider.


26th August 2019: Earlier, King of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan released the trailer for his new Netflix series ‘Bard of Blood’ and the Pakistani audience isn’t impressed.

Bard of Blood is an Indian spy thriller series produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and stars Emraan Hashmi.

Hashmi plays an excommunicated RAW agent who leads a dangerous rescue mission in Balochistan (a province in Pakistan).

The series is based on a book of the same name by Bilal Siddiqi. The trailer begins in Balochistan, where Indian spies have been caught and are about to be executed before they can deliver an important piece of information to India.

Former spy Kabir Anand (Emraan Hashmi) is called to go to Balochistan for a rescue mission.
Bollywood and Hollywood have continuously promoted a negative/false image of Pakistan, however, this time, it’s more serious due to the timing and current tension between India and Pakistan.

Soon after the trailer was released, Mehwish Hayat, recipient of the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, tweeted about how India has always defamed Pakistan.

Another week & yet another anti-Pakistan project. Now can we wake up, smell the coffee & see Bollywood’s agenda for what it is?@iamsrk Be patriotic, nobody is stopping you – just don’t do it at the expense of vilifying us.

It’s not just Mehwish, the entire nation shares similar sentiments.
In a tweet, Pakistan Army Major General Asif Ghafoor also criticised SRK for producing the series and asked him “to promote peace and humanity by speaking against atrocities in Kashmir.”

Social media influencer Furqan Shayk also shared his resentment. “Dear @netflix I’m canceling my subscription after looking at the trailer of #BardOfBlood,” he wrote.

But would Netflix be bothered by this? Absolutely. “There are about 1 billion muslims around the world, only if 1 million cancels, sure they will give a damn,” he further explained his decision.

Clearly, Pakistani do not pay Netflix to defame them. Many followed Furqan’s lead and cancelled their subscriptions as well.

What are your thoughts? Would you cancel your subscription too?
