ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed all television channels to stop misuse of ‘respectable’ religious titles and qualifications as prefixes by terrorists.
“Titles and qualifications such as Maulana, Moulvi, Qari, Mufti, Hafiz, Doctor/Engineer etc should not be used for the persons involved in terrorist activities, which tantamount to glorification of terrorism,” the PEMRA said in a letter to all TV stations.
A comprehensive awareness campaign may be run on electronic media to expose and discredit terrorist outfits, it said.
