ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) Tuesday issued a show-cause notice to APNA TV for airing indecent content in the movie Knight Riders.
The regulator said that telecasting such content violated several of its clauses and the Electronic Media Code of Conduct 2015.
“The content aired shows complete disregard to the norms of the society as well,” PEMRA said in a press release.
The channel is required to submit its response on or before July 18 and has also asked the organization’s CEO to appear for a personal hearing on July 18.
