The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PERMA) has issued show-cause notices to company that has been telecasting Indian serials.

PERMA has issued such notices following a petition in the Lahore High Court. PERMA has notified that the private TV channel in Pakistan was not entitled to broadcast any Indian serials.

Five leading domestic entertainment channels of Pakistan had filed a writ petition in the LHC seeking direction from PEMRA to stop the illegal transmissions of the said channel in Pakistan.

Following which PERMA has produced copies of the private channel's license and the approved mix of programmes it could broadcast. PEMRA said it had never allowed the channel to beam any Indian content. PEMRA further said the channel could broadcast foreign content only after dubbing it in Urdu.

Along with it the Supreme Court has further directed the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulation Authority (PEMRA) and the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) to block blasphemous content on a social media website.

The order follows due to the widespread discontent spread by the film on Prophet Muhammad as it is being viewed as blasphemous and anti Islam.
