ISLAMABAD—The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has announced countrywide protests on July 8 over the suspension of 24 News Television license and delay in payment of wages to media workers by several news organizations.
PFUJ President Shahzada Zulfiqar and Secretary-General Nasir Zaidi have directed all unions of journalists across Pakistan to stage protests and rallies.
They urged the office bearers of the unions to set aside their differences for now “as the situation demands action not divisions.”
Last week, PEMRA suspended the license of 24 News for not complying with its order to switch to its original programming of entertainment.
In a notification, the regulator stated that Value TV holding license for entertainment content was persistently, illegally, and unlawfully airing news and current affairs in violation of PEMRA laws.
PEMRA said, 24 News was provided ample opportunities to revert to its original content.
