    Every country and its Apex Court has right to decide what is good for their people at least as per the judicial law but no citizen of any country has right to create perception of other countries nationals as per the content aired. May be what seems to be stupid to us does make sense to you. I do not want to go to in depth of laws which support 4 marriage and etc because that's your personal matter and I would rather not make my perception of you all based on things like that. People here are raised to ranks based on ratings they got but they are still prisoner of their introvert thoughts.

    Indian content has been accepted worldwide in terms of thought provoking content and masala as well.

    None of my business but you have right to watch at the end you need to decide that. Don't be following China for the same as to be feeded by what Government wants.

    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.

    ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD
    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.

    Serious question:
    Is Bollywood culture not just the rich and flashy side of the Punjabi culture?

    No, rather it projects Punjabis in bad light like a bunch of jesters screaming for no reason and are inherently silly while the reality is completely opposite.

    Which emphasizes respecting elders and women and bars its subjects to perceive females as some sorta sexual commodity like chamak challoo, bachi, randi, babe, Bob and sunny - - - - - - -

    Being a tech geek to be revered is not the litmus test here. The thing which determines their authority and respect is whether they can keep a family together?


    Common young man every new generation mostly don't think so high about their elderly.
