PEMRA Is Posting ‘Besharam' Content On Social Media And People Don't Know Where To Complain

By Ather Ahmed | 19 Aug, 2017

Just a few days ago, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) issued warning notices to three major Television Networks. These included Geo Entertainment, ARY Communications, and Hum TV. PEMRA had alleged that these channels had aired objectionable and indecent programs.

 

In the notice, PEMRA had requested ARY to send an explanation of sorts for viewing ‘indecent content’

Naturally, people had a lot to say on the matter.

Some supported their decision:

There were those that were curious to know what the objectionable material was

For those of you who are not aware of this, ARY is the official distributor of HBO content in Pakistan. As far as the scene is concerned I can safely say that all Pakistanis closed their eyes in sync. I mean, we are trained for this since are childhood.

PEMRA’s strategy sort of back-fired with people accusing it of posting ‘indecent content’.

Yeh tou sub ghalat hogaya:

Obviously, one of them was bound to be tharki:
