After receiving directive from the Centre to take immediate steps to stop unauthorised broadcast of Pakistani and Saudi Arabia, the government of Jammu and Kashmir has swung into action.

The state government has asked all the deputy commissioners to take action against transmission of 34 TV channels as they have the potential to incite violence and create law and order situation.
The 34 channels were listed by the state home department, which is headed by chief minister Mehbooba Mufti. They are Peace TV Urdu and English, ARY QTV, Madni Channel, Noor TV, Hadi TV, Paigam, Hidayat, Saudi Al- Sunnah Al-Nabawiyah, Saudi-Al-Quran Al-Karim, Sehar, Karbala TV, Ahli-biat TV, Message TV, Hum TV, ARY Digital Asia, Hum Sitaray, ARY Zindagi, PTV Sports, ARY Musik, TV One, ARY Masala, ARY Zauq, A TV, Geo News, ARY News Asia, Abb Takk News, Waseb TV, 92 News, Duniya News, Samna News, Geo Tez, Express News and ARY News.

An order issued on Saturday by principal secretary, home department, R.K. Goyal, to all the district magistrates (deputy commissioners) of the state stated: “It has been reported that the cable operators in the Valley have been transmitting certain TV channels (which are not permitted by the ministry of information and broadcasting, government of India). It needs to be noted that transmission of non-permitted TV channels apart from attracting the violation (of the law), has the potential to encourage or incite violence and create law and order disturbances in the Kashmir Valley.”

Goyal said the transmission of non-permitted TV channels by the cable operators attracts violation of the Cable TV Networks Regulation Rules. “As per Section 11 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, the district magistrate has the power to seize the equipment in case of a violation,” the order read.
