Raids on cable operators

“Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA)”, the governing body of electronic media and cable operators in Pakistan, has raided the offices of cable operators and during this time equipment used to broadcast Indian films and serials has been recovered from the offices of four cable operators. . Broadcasting of Indian content is banned in Pakistan, but even after that many cable operators were telecasting Indian movies and serials illegally.

Where were the raids conducted?

According to Pakistani media reports, PEMRA officials raided the offices of M/s Sharjah Cable Network, M/s Karachi Cable Services, M/s New Satellite Communication and M/s Star Digital Cable Network, all of which are located in Karachi. Huh. In its statement, PEMRA has said that during the raids, illegal equipment has been seized and notices have been issued to cable operators violating the government order. PEMRA has launched an operation in the country on reports of willful violation of the Supreme Court order by cable operators. PEMRA has with immediate effect barred all cable TV operators in the country from airing Indian channels/content and prosecuted those doing so.

Ban was imposed in 2016

Ban was imposed in 2016

Let us tell you that in the year 2016, PEMRA had imposed a complete ban on airing Indian content on local television and FM radio channels. However, the Lahore High Court had lifted the ban in 2017 and declared it void, as the Government of Pakistan had no objection to Indian content at that time. But, in 2018, the Supreme Court of Pakistan imposed a complete ban on airing Indian content on TV channels across the country, overturning the Lahore High Court order. This decision of the Pakistani Supreme Court was seen as an ‘action of revenge’, because Pakistani artistes were banned from working in India and showing Pakistani content.
