ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court has stopped electronic media regulator PEMRA from taking any adverse action against channels violating its Ramzan guidelines.
The apex court was hearing a petition filed by Pakistan Broadcasters Association challenging the regulator’s guidelines.
In its order dated May 31, the Supreme Court directed the Islamabad High Court to pass an appropriate order in this regard on June 5.
Until then, no action can be taken against the PBA.
PEMRA had served show-cause notices on Geo Entertainment, Sindh TV, KTN and ARY Digital for violating the Ramzan guidelines it issued to television channels before the start of the holy month.
