Paris Mayor recognizes Pakistani TV Show

By  | 

PARIS, TX-- The Mayor of Paris recently recognized a Pakistani TV show's actors and actresses by proclaiming a week last month in celebration of the program.

Mayor A.J. Hashmi says the city receives requests for proclamations all the time and all are accepted unless it's something illegal. He says not all proclamations are read at city council meetings, and that he doesn't know who sent in this proclamation request.

"Aseer Zadi" is a drama about a polygamist family who prides itself in its traditions. Hashmi says the show features a girl fighting those traditions.

An English translated copy of the show is being sent to the Paris Public Library.
