ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has issued a second show-cause notice to APNA TV for airing indecent content in three days.
The objectionable content was aired in the channel’s morning show on July 6.
A PEMRA release said such content violated several of its clauses and the Electronic Media Code of Conduct.
“The content aired is offensive to the commonly accepted standards of decency and exploits cultural and religious values of viewers,” the regulatror said.
The channel is required to respond to the notice on or before July 21. The organization’s CEO has also been asked to appear for a personal hearing on July 21.
On July 11, APNA was issued a similar notice for telecasting indecent content in the movie Knight Riders.
