ISLAMABAD – For airing a commercial based on superstitions and inciting viewers to resort to black magic, electronic media watchdog PEMRA Thursday issued a warning to Dharti TV.
According to a PEMRA press release, the channel aired the controversial advert on August 4. It was titled ‘Al-Haaj Pasha Rohani Nageena Center’.
PEMRA said airing such content violated several of its clauses and the electronic media code of conduct.
“The content aired encourages public towards black magic and is highly offensive to the commonly accepted standards of decency as well as against religious beliefs.
The regulator has told the channel to stop airing the commercial immediately and warned of legal action if another violation occurred.
