PEMRA raids DTH & cable operators showing Indian content

MUMBAI: A PEMRA team has seized illegal hardware and apparatus of DTH and Cline cable network from various electronics shops in Silanwali (Sargodha), Pakistan, and raided DTH re-broadcasters and viewers who are watching or distributing Indian TV channels.

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority assistant general manager Malik Qasim Nawaz said the government had banned foreign channels and dish antenna, the News International reported. Nawaz added that the raids would continue and action would be taken against electronic shops and cable operators for allegedly violating government policies.

The Sindh High Court earlier vacated its interim order regarding suspension of PEMRA's ban on Amir Liaquat Hussain's private TV programme and directed that PEMRA's order would shall remain in force as per the apex court directive. PEMRA had submitted that it had received hundreds of complaints against the petitioner anchorperson for virulent hate speech during the period -- 2 January to 24.

A senior lawyer of the apex court earlier refused to further represent the Sindh provincial government in a case pertaining to the appointment of advisers for the chief minister Murad Ali Shah.

Former attorney general Makhdom Ali Khan who was representing the province in the instant matter in private capacity recused himself in view of the Supreme Court verdict taking exception to the practice of federal and provincial departments of hiring services of private lawyers in various cases and paying hefty sums from the national exchequer as their fees.
