PEMRA orders ARY Digital not to air banned ad

Published: August 10, 2017

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) issued on Thursday a stern warning to television channel ARY Digital, proscribing it from airing any advertisement or commercial prohibited by the regulatory watchdog.

The watchdog on July 15 had issued a show cause notice to the network for defying its order of not airing of an IGLOO advertisement.

The authority directed the company’s management to explain its position in writing, in addition to appearing for a personal hearing.

It also warned that in case of repeated violations, strict legal action will be taken against the channel.

    The redlines being imposed on this nation are proof enough that this nation of 200 million pures is socially a toddler and will never never compete with other nations of the world in any field of life . Recommend

    I agree banning everything is not the solution. But comparing Pakistan with India doesn’t make sense. We are 2 sides of the same coin when it comes to social issues. India needs to build toilets, allow people to eat beef freely & protect their women from being raped before reaching Mars. Cheers.Recommend
