The Supreme Court (SC) on Saturday reinstated a ban on the transmission of Indian content on local television channels, putting aside a prior decision by the Lahore High Court (LHC).
Boss Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar was hearing a case documented by the United Producers Association relating to the communicate of outside content on Pakistani television channels in the SC Karachi vault today.
“They are attempting to [obstruct the construction] of our dam and we can’t ban their channels?” the best judge seethed as he requested the communicate of Indian shows to be “close down” before including that the experts should “only air appropriate content”.
In 2016, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) had forced a total ban on airing Indian content on local television and FM radio channels.
The choice was to a great extent observed as a one good turn deserves another move after comparable moves were made by a few channels and media outlets in India against Pakistani content and craftsmen.
In 2017, the LHC had lifted the Pemra-forced ban, pronouncing it invalid and void as the government had no protests in regards to the equivalent.
