Pak parliamentary panel recommends ban on Indian TV channels

A Pakistani parliamentary panel has recommended an immediate ban on Indian TV channels that it said are telecasting "immoral" programmes.

Begum Belium Hasnain, chairperson of the committee on information and broadcasting of the National Assembly or lower house of parliament, claimed several Indian entertainment channels were involved in airing immoral programmes.

"We want an immediate ban on them and strict action against cable operators in case they do not follow the government's instruction," she said.

"We have to protect our young generation from the onslaught of Indian channels," Hasnain told reporters.

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority should also look into copyright violations by cable operators.

"The cable operators are telecasting pirated Indian movies and they should be stopped and penalized," she said.

The issue of banning Indian movies in Pakistani cinema halls was raised some months ago after a perceived snub of the country's cricketers during the auction for the Indian Premier League.
