Pak parliamentary panel recommends ban on Indian TV channels
Lahore: A Pakistani parliamentary panel
has recommended an immediate ban on Indian TV channels that it
said are telecasting "immoral" programmes.
Begum Belium Hasnain, chairperson of the committee on
information and broadcasting of the National Assembly or lower
house of parliament, claimed several Indian entertainment
channels were involved in airing immoral programmes.
"We want an immediate ban on them and strict action
against cable operators in case they do not follow the
government`s instruction," she said.
"We have to protect our young generation from the
onslaught of Indian channels," Hasnain told reporters.
The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority
should also look into copyright violations by cable operators.
"The cable operators are telecasting pirated Indian
movies and they should be stopped and penalized," she said.
The issue of banning Indian movies in Pakistani cinema
halls was raised some months ago after a perceived snub of the
country’s cricketers during the auction for the Indian Premier
