PESHAWAR—Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has reportedly banned fake social media channels, including those on web, YouTube, and Facebook, and barred their journalists from entering government offices.
Only PEMRA registered national-level channels and newspapers would be allowed to cover official events.
Representatives of social media channels would not be allowed to record statements or seek versions of government officials.
The government also barred officials from giving statements and interviews to social media channels and inviting them to news conferences.
The government is said to have informed the district administration, and relevant officials about the directive regarding social media channels.
The decision was taken due to the growing number of fictitious social media channels involved in disseminating fake news and blackmailing public servants and even citizens.
