ISLAMABAD – Electronic media regulator PEMRA has issued a show-cause notice to AAP TV for broadcasting “unverified and false information” about the marital life of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The “unsubstantiated and unauthentic” news was aired during the program Aap Janab hosted by Ali Aftab, Asad Nizami, and Fizza Jamal.
Airing such false news violates the general principles of decency as well as privacy, the regulator said.
PEMRA said a complaint on behalf of the prime minister through Baber Awan has been lodged against another satellite TV channel for airing similar content which was referred to the Council of Complaints.
AAP TV is required to submit a written reply and appear for a hearing before the Council of Complaints on April 5.
In the program, the AAP program hosts disclose that the prime minister and his spouse have had a “heavy fight.”
