PEMRA Just Issued A Weird Order About Pakistani Dramas Being Too Bold And Everyone's Flipping Out

By Iman Zia | 4 Sep, 2018

PEMRA has issued a report warning the Pakistani television industry for being bold and not holding true to actual events in our society. Our dramas have been notably very true to societal issues at hand, touching upon taboos such as child marriages and dowry, and have shed much-needed light on marginalized communities such as our transgenders too.

 

However, PEMRA disagrees and has issued an incredibly bizarre report calling out Pakistani dramas for ‘deteriorating every day’ and do not reflect the ‘majority of Pakistani society’

The report suggested that our dramas have been showing far too many ‘indecent scenes’ along with ‘extramarital relations’ and ‘violence,’ all that collectively have been shrouding PEMRA laws.

The order listed out all the things wrong with Pakistani dramas and stated how ‘plots/themes…are influenced by alien cultures/societies, portraying fictional society’

Allegedly dramas have been showing far too much ‘glamor,’ with ‘bold scenes’ overshadowing ‘religious, social, cultural and ethical values’ of the country. Apparently, numerous complaints have been made to the board by the general public, and our television industry has been ignoring the ‘ethical bindings’ of society… I’m sorry but WTF???

LOL at this report, here’s the full order below

Actor Osman Khalid Butt, who was last seen in ‘Baaghi,’ (the critically acclaimed drama loosely based on Qandeel Baloch’s life) was having NONE of it

He correctly expressed how not every drama can be family orientated, because then that really isn’t staying true to telling raw stories that plague our society. Dramas cannot be ‘generaliz[ed]’ and if orders like these are put forward, then there cannot be any form of television diversification.

 

‘Good television with strong content holds a mirror up to society, and is meant to be uncomfortable,’ said Osman

 

And he isn’t the only one flipped off by the audacious report…various Pakistanis have condemned the order

 

 

 

Do you agree with PEMRA’s statement?
