ISLAMABAD – PEMRA said Friday it expects anchors and columnists to present a true picture about the actions it has taken against incidents of hate speech and violence.
In a press release, the regulator said that a few anchors and columnists through TV talk shows and tweets have attempted to propagate that it has not taken appropriate action against channels accused of spreading hate.
“This is intellectual dishonesty,” it said, adding that during the last 16 months it had taken strict action against hate speech and other violations.
“All those pointing fingers at PEMRA know well that the regulator’s hands are tied when High Courts immediately grant stay orders against Authority’s decisions and even against Show Cause Notices.”
Pointing out that there were 531 cases pending before various courts, PEMRA said that judicial challenges and hostile, illegal and unconstitutional acts by some other quarters are attempts to weaken a state institution’s writ. However, this does not mean PEMRA would stop fulfilling its constitutional obligations.
