In their campaign to get a court verdict against what they term “spread of vulgarity” by local television channels, Milli Yekjehti Council (MYC) managed to attract strong support from Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
The petition in Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) against ‘obscenity and vulgarity’ on TV channels was the initiative of the late Qazi Ahmed who actively pursued it until his death in 2012
“We are on the same page regarding obscenity and vulgarity,” Fazl told Asif Luqman Qazi, the Vice President of MYC and Qazi Ahmed’s son who met the JUI-F chief here on Tuesday.
He assured that his party would fully support the cause of stopping such channels from displaying ‘obscene’ material.
