”I just found out the UK government has banned me from coming to the UK to show #HiddenColors5,” Tariq wrote on Twitter. He continued: ”They are denying me to even enter the UK. I called the UK government to find out why and the officials said: ‘I’m not conducive to the good of the public’ of the UK.”

”I have been calling the UK Home Office all week, and they are deliberately being vague and evasive about telling me the specific reason for the ban,” Nasheed told Independent. He went on to say: ”The ban is definitely because of the release of my new film Hidden Colors 5.”
