Pakistan has banned broadcast of Indian TV channels in their country as a step to take revenge against India’s surgical attack and this is the best thing they can do so that their people do get the real information about the attack done by India in their terrorists’ launching pads.
This move of Pakistani Government has come two days after India’s movie industry banned Pakistani artists and technicians from working in India.
This time Pakistan seems very serious about the ban on broadcasting of Indian TV channels as Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority had given instructions to their TV channels and distribution networks that they have to face strict actions if they failed to implement the ban after 15th October. PEMRA also said that they have received many complaints that some local channels were showing Indian talk shows and reality programs without permission.
PEMRA has told to PTI that the complaints have shown serious concerns in this issue in the wake of current situation between India and Pakistan.
Pakistani Cinemas has also stopped showing Indian movies in solidarity with the country’s armed forces.
They have stopped the screening of the Indian movies in their cinemas till the situation becomes normal and improves to normalcy.
Since the terror attack on Uri, where 19 soldiers were killed, few political parties asked Pakistani to leave the country and even gave deadline of 48 hours including Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan else the MNS will push them out.
Even in our Bollywood Industry any actors have supported the decision of banning the Pakistani actors where few are not supporting this decision and the latest actor to join this debate is Salman Khan who is not in favour of ban on Pakistani artists as he said that artists are not terrorists. But should we allow people from Pakistan to come here and earn money and fame when the situation between the two nations is tensed over LOC.
In Pakistan several actors and artists are happy with the decision of banning Indian movies and TV shows and supporting the decision of PEMRA.
