    Will not allow Indian content as 'it damages our culture': CJP

    Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar says that ban on Indian content will not be lifted. — File

    Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Wednesday made it clear that the Supreme Court will not allow Indian content to be shown on Pakistani TV channels as it "damages our culture".

    A three-member SC bench, under the chief justice's stewardship, was hearing an appeal filed by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) against high courts' decision to ban the broadcast of Indian content on TV channels in Pakistan.

    Pemra's counsel Zafar Iqbal Kalanauri apprised the SC bench that foreign content had been banned on court orders before a high court issued a stay order against it.

    Pemra Chairman Saleem Baig told the court that 65 per cent of the content shown on Filmazia channel is foreign and that the number at times goes as high as 80 per cent.

    At this, the chief justice remarked that "we will not allow Indian content to be aired on [Pakistani] channels".

    Pemra counsel explained to the chief justice that "Filmazia is not a news channel but is an entertainment channel; it does not do any propaganda."

    "It is, however, damaging our culture," the top judge countered.

    The chief justice observed that the Pakistan Broadcasters Association's counsel, Faisal Siddiqui was not in attendance. "We cannot pass a judgement without hearing him," he said.

    Subsequently, the hearing was adjourned till the first week of February.

    In 2016, Pemra had imposed a complete ban on airing Indian content on local television and FM radio channels.

    The decision was largely seen as a tit-for-tat move after similar actions were taken by some channels and the entertainment industry in India against Pakistani content and artists.

    In 2017, the Lahore High Court had lifted the Pemra-imposed ban, declaring it null and void as the federal government had no objections regarding the same.

    In October 2018, the Supreme Court had reinstated the ban on the transmission of Indian content on local television channels, setting aside the LHC orders.

    Absolutely, not jut TV content, we need to ban bollywood which is nothing but a dance and parade of modern day prostitutes, selling stories that are poisonous to any sane mind and a pure soul.

    See what's it done to their public who have become deluded, easy to manipulate, and sex deprived maniacs.

    Why just on TV? Why not in cinemas as well? Why cable operators are allowed to broadcast Indian channels and movies?

    this is where the role of media establishes. media must point out such matters that you have said but they are busy in money making.

    I think you had banned it. Why did you lift the ban? Had somebody from india had requested you to do so? All your theater will die like lollywood in absence of good movies. Go ahead and do that if you guys have guts.

    So far as culture is concern, you guys tried a lot to kill Indian culture and Indian languages. It is clearly evident what that resulted into. If you guys think that you have not done enough blunders, go ahead and do one more.

    Indian channels will never be banned, people want their entertainment and the govt will provide it.

    Banning this and that will not stop the increasing Indian infuence on Pakistani awam.

    Why is someone giving justifications ?

    You have every right to frame any laws.

    Pakistanis should take an oath of also not watching Bollywood movies to show their support for CJP ruling :pakistan:

    As long the people have a wish to see such material, they will simply watch it by means other than TV channels. Such bans are never effective.

    Well we tried to uplift and enlighten your people, but some people can never be enlightened or civilized.
    So we gave up, and separated ourselves and erected a border in between :)
