پاکستان الیکٹرانک میڈیا ریگولیٹری اتھارٹی (پیمرا) نے نجی ٹی وی چینلز سے اپیل کی ہے کہ عیدالاضحیٰ کے موقع پر پہلے سے ریکارڈ کئے گئے یا براہ راست ایسے پروگرام نشر کرنے سے گریز کریں جو قوم اور کشمیری بھائیوں کے جذبات کو مجروح کریں۔

پیمرا کی جانب سے جاری نوٹیفکیشن میں تمام نیوز اور اینٹرٹینمنٹ چینل سے درخواست کی گئی ہے کہ کشمیریوں پر بھارتی مظالم کے تناظر میں عید الاضحیٰ کی تعطیلات میں ایسے تمام پروگرام نشر کرنے سے گریز کیا جائے جو قومی جذبات کو بھڑکانے اور کشمیری بھائیوں کی دلی تکلیف کا باعث بنیں۔

پیمرا کا کہنا ہے کہ 14 اگست کو یوم آزادی کو بہادر کشمیریوں سے اتحاد یکجہتی کے طور پر منایا جائے گا جبکہ بھارتی یوم آزادی 15 اگست کو یوم سیاہ کے طور پر منائیں گے، اس موقع پر قومی پرچم سرنگوں رہے گا۔

الیکٹرانک میڈیا ریگولیٹری اتھارٹی نے ٹی وی چینلز کو تجویز کیا ہے کہ وہ مقبوضہ کشمیر میں بھارتی مظالم کو اجاگر کرنے کیلئے اپنے لوگو 15 اگست 2019ء کو بلیک اینڈ وائٹ کردیں۔

پیمرا نے 8 اگست کو جاری اپنے ایک اور نوٹیفکیشن میں ٹی وی چینلز کو ہدایت کی تھی کہ وہ ٹاک شوز میں بھارتی صحافیوں، صحافی، تجزیہ کار اور مشہور شخصیت کو مدعو نہ کریں۔

Like Kashmiris would give a crap what is shown on TV.

The resident of Bani gala is so clueless to the plight of Kashmiris that he thinks they're busy watching TV

The paid crooks on media protecting the monetary and political interests of their media houses. We don’t want to watch brainless film/ media industry people telling their stupid family stories and crap jokes and highlighting ideas of Independence day. There must be some intellectual debate and analysis on the need of Independence and rationale of the Two Nations Theory; and related issues of national development, diplomacy in correlation to the changing world dynamics. The need is to educate our people not to highlight acrobatic posture and snobbish success stories of film/drama people and reporters turned self-proclaimed anchor persons.

Leave Kashmiri we also dont give a shit about your opinion but you still show up
If you dont want to watch it, then dont watch it. TV channels run on TRPs. if something is not popular they will remove it. I strongly disagree with this notification from PEMRA.
Atmost the PEMRA should have asked the channels to air atleast 1 to 2 programs related the Kashmir topic.

Also stopping the Channels to interview Indian Journalists is a bad decision, there is a sizable number of Indians who have opposed the BJP led Kashmir move, theres no harm in interviewing them.

Under no case should the channels be dictated. This is the very definition of press freedom. Its not about whether the cause is important to be dictated. But it sets a precedent, today this is used for a just cause, but tomorrow the same power might be misused by this or the other govt.

Freedom also has its limit. A ban on imports is kind of against free market and also slows down the growth of economy so should we not put tariffs against imports? National interest comes before any personal benefits and business profits. There are some roles in which national duty is more important than making money and media is one of them.

Free market is not a right, free opinion is. and controlling the media is always dangerous in the long run. Right now its PTI in charge, but later its bound to be another party, do you really want to give the govt power to control the media???

Number one its not a ban but rather an advice secondly kashmir is not an issue of PTI or pmln but rather a national issue third freedom of speech also has its limits no one is allowed to spread hate on religious and ethnic lines nazis are not allowed to propagate their believes so freedom of speech is not unlimited.

Free media/opinion is a slogan of the West is a strategy fir the rest. Western news and print media are absolutely directed and controlled and towed the policy of the state/establishment. We are fools to be mesmerised by their slogans.
