Osman Khalid Butt Has A Lot To Say About PEMRA's Notice And We’re Here For It

By Arslan Athar | 4 Sep, 2018

Earlier today, PEMRA released a notice to all Pakistani TV channels. This notice essentially asked for channels to be more responsible when creating TV content, keeping in mind that younger children watch TV. Furthermore, they asked channels to put forward a more ‘closer to reality’ depiction of Pakistani society and families.

He added to this, reminding people that this body has made questionable decisions before. 

There were some people who agreed with Osman 

Of course, Osman joined the fun 

It’s a fact that people read the same thing differently. Such was the case with the notice.

Some read it as PEMRA asking for diversity in storylines while others saw it as a call for moral policing. At least, Osman Khalid Butt was willing to interact with that difference and begin a discussion.

While there was some discussion happening, others were just throwing insults.

Things got pretty much out of hand, so Osman took to Twitter again to further break down his stance

It should be noted, that his argument is well balanced (as an argument should be really). He highlights what’s wrong with Pakistani showbiz but deconstructs PEMRA’s notice.

This ‘notice’ by PEMRA is a lazy move on their part to fix an issue. This isn’t how change should be brought up or tackled with 

Now, we don’t know what PEMRA exactly meant with this, but it does read like a statement demanding ‘moral policing’. Also, their demand to represent ‘Pakistani society’ is just really vague. How do you process and deal with such a demand without knowing what it means? It just seems like a rushed attempt by PEMRA to deal with this. Let’s hope that PEMRA either clears their stance or that they are able to deal with this better in the future.
