Shoot On Sight (2007) - "Is it a crime to be a Muslim?", a British film based on the real-life Operation Kratos undertaken by Scotland Yard after the July 7, 2005 London Terrorist attacks, has been banned by the Pakistani government.

The movie is directed by Jag Mundhra and has a character acting powerhouse star-cast of Naseeruddin Shah, Brian Cox, Om Puri, Greta Scacchi and Sadie Frost, with Pakistani actor Mikaal Zulifqar playing a terrorist.
