ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed the management of TV One and program host Sahir Lodhi to apologize to viewers for airing controversial remarks about Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
A PEMRA press release said the management is required to specifically mention compliance of PEMRA orders in its transmission on Saturday, June 24.
Sahir Lodhi hosts the program Ishq-e-Ramzan. In his show on May 28, he held Quaid-i-Azam as being responsible for the deaths during the partition of the sub-continent.
PEMRA served a show-cause notice to the channel on May 31.
After hearing the representative of the organization, and analyzing the written reply, it was found that various PEMRA clauses had been violated.
The channel was also told to be vigilant in future.
