ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) on Wednesday issued show cause notice to private channel for not showing Gilgit Baltistan as part of Pakistan.
In the notice it is stated that the channel on Tuesday morning about 930 am telecasted an analysis in which the impression was given as if GB was not part of Pakistan and this was against national interest.
The notice further said that apparently the channel followed the stance of Indian Prime Minister and Indian media. At a time when Pakistan is highlighting Indian atrocities on hapless Kashmiris, the analysis of private channel was not only against national interests but PEMRA rules as well.
The channel management has been given seven days to explain its position on telecast of anti-Pakistan analysis, otherwise unilateral action would be taken and its transmission would be blocked. –APP
