ISLAMABAD –Electronic media regulator PEMRA Saturday warned cable operators not to air transmission of Wesal Urdu, a TV channel inciting violence and hatred and which is not its licensee.
“Strict action will be taken in case any cable operator is found involved in airing this channel’s transmission,” PEMRA said in a press release.
The release said it is a UK-based channel and is being beamed into Pakistan illegally through a foreign satellite operator Asiasat 7, which is out of bounds for PEMRA. It can only be watched by individuals who have installed illegal satellite dishes.
