ISLAMABAD - The electronic media's regulatory body PEMRA has summoned managers of Channel 24 and Dunya News for a personal hearing after both aired objectionable remarks against the chief justice and the judiciary.
A PEMRA press release said the channels had aired a press conference of Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen and Sunni Ittehad Council leaders on May 16 in which sectarian hatred and allegations against the chief justice were hurled. Following those broadcasts, PEMRA had served show cause notices on the two channels. They were given until May 23 to submit a response.
However, PEMRA found their responses unsatisfactory and acting under Section 30, ordered Channel 24 to appear for a hearing on June 2 and Dunya News to do the same on June 3.
