    @Horus

    I've mistakenly registered my vote before noticing the Pakistani national warning below.
    I hope you can adjust the count down one on option 2. Sorry! Autant pour moi!

    & @All

    And I choose -no ban- because I sincerely believe that a proper nation facing an enemy
    in the long run which always includes peacetime, especially a neighbour, should ensure
    that its people are educated enough to make an informed opinion by themselves.

    As said Thucydides :
    The strength of a nation resides not in its walls and its vessels but in the character of its citizens.

    And when I say educated, I mean higher up mostly; illiterates only responding to TV or radio.

    That way, counter-propaganda work is less demanding, enemy fiction work can be enjoyed
    without fear of subliminal subversion like that very decent Indian cinema and more importantly
    the Indian press can thus continue its excellent work of bringing smiles to thousands of Pakis-
    tani faces everyday. *

    Good day and discussion all, Tay.

    * Come to think of it, Pakistan may well be the first Nation to have completely outsourced its
    written media humour! :pleasantry:

    1. The penalties for the channels should be in % of their annual gross income so as to compensate for the damage done due to the size and coverage of the channel.
    2. While the persons(anchors, analysts etc) should be given both financial and physical punishments, in addition, to bans varying from a week to lifetime.
    3. Most of the Indian channels be banned (except for Islamic channels e.g. peace tv)
    But i would ask for a more rugged and permanent approach i.e. content based instead of the source of origin. Any content that is against the tenets of Islam, our cultural, morality and which tries to fan sectarian, linguistic, and religion intolerance and against the state, its foundation, two nation theory and founding fathers from any source and in any form, should be banned and any propagation of it should be a punishable crime.

    Protest:

    I was standing in my brother's shop when a child with his father came and asked about a product, kinderjoy type. His father told that he has seen this product on star plus. I said sorry it was not available here.

    Now, either ban showing this material or open trade between India and Pakistan.

    Some products are available and very common, like Indian combs are very famous. Others only on big stores and very limited availability, more than double the price in India.

    How is Kinder Joy Indian? It's made by Ferrero and is available in most countries.

    Most of the channels on air in Pakistan are stolen feeds from DTH platforms.So channels don't make money from advertisements or subscription fees.

    Both breaking Pakistani laws and Indian laws are being broken during this process.

    India news channels are so unprofessional and loud that even India should ban them to save their people. I find Ndtv good but rest are as idiotic as it gets.

    Entertainment channels can keep running, but alternatively Pakistan's channels can buy shows and telecast them on our own channels. Which Ary is already doing with bigg boss and few dramas.

    I have posted these for those who point their fingers at their neighbours. That is there is an old saying" First look into mirror" before making comments about others.

    Most international countries have laws to maintain 80% local content and 20% international programming. Example in France they are quite picky if French Language channels don't have close to 100% french content

    Pakistan's local channels have abused the programing principles for last 10 years

    Investment has to go into Promoting Local Drama / Movie / Music industries and that will only be possible with Investment into Local Production & Creation of content. While the focus should be to maintain 80:20 ratio for content

    Lately I have seen too many instances where I see certain degradation of vocabulary and language used by Anchors is not necessarily maintaining a high standard lol there is a commercial on ARY tv where a guy is singing "Stiyum Shivam Sundarm" and I am asking my father ? Ye kiya ker raha hai ? Ye Paksitani channel hai ya Indian

    Displaying 1 Show per channels imported from India is ok and does not harm but provided 20 shows are made in Pakistan

    For commercials I really do not see any reason why Imports are done from India

    Political Talk shows should be limited to 5% of daily production

    Per Day:
    4 Hours = Children Programming (1 Hr International (Cartoon) , 3 hours local shows)
    4 Hours = Women Shows (1 Hour International, 4 hours locally produced shows)
    3 Hours = Documentaries (1 Hour International , 3 hours locally produced shows)
    4 Hours = Prime time shows (1 Hour international , 3 hours locally made shows)
    1 Hour = News
    2 Hours = Sports
    1 Hour = History

    5 Hours (Transmission off)

    In Term of Programming quality , the degradation is really due to a Production Team's not being of high quality , Lack of High quality Camera and Lack of Proper Editing Tools and Production Support . In order to make High end product you need team of 100-200 People working in Production Companies. Most drama in Pakistan have a feel of a start up 3-10 people Production team

    We often forget Pakistan also has minorities that include Hindu, Sikh and Christians etc. If a person is singing SATIYM SHIVAM SUNDRAM, it is of course not for Pakistani Muslims but for other communities. So your objection shouldn't be the content but may be source of the content. As you are saying things should be produced locally.

    Howmuch time should be given to minorities, one hour daily?

    Minorities should get their own channel however the ARY commercial runs 24 hours a day and I highly doubt the context is appropriate , however I stated 1 hour is for international programming and 2, 30 minute programs can fit in that time slot per day
