Shorter head of the new virtue police in Afghanistan:

We're not going to be nasty like the old Afghan virtue police, but let's face it: Bollywood movies really do lead to heroin addiction and AIDS.

(Yes, the new post-Taliban government is reinstating the virtue police. The head of the virtue cops sounds kind of silly complaining about Indian movies, but as the story at the link points out, the old Taliban virtue police used to throw young men in jail and beat them with cables for wearing their hair like Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic. Gosh, it's swell to see the Afghans making such progress.)
