Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - STAFF RE­PORTER

KARACHI—The Pak­istan Elec­tronic Me­dia Regu-la­tory Au­thor­ity (PEMRA) has banned Hamza Ali Ab­basi and Shab­bir Abu Talib from host­ing Ramzan trans­mis­sion on Aaj TV and News One re­spec­tively for vi­o­lat­ing code of con­duct set up by the me­dia watch­dog.

“In spite of clear in­struc­tions from PEMRA, un­for­tu­nately, own­ers of TV chan­nels, male and fe­male an­chors and par­tic­i­pants of the pro­grams over stepped all the lim­its, hold­ing ill­timed dis­cus­sion on unan­i­mous de­ci­sions of the par­lia­ment,” said a state­ment is­sued by the PEMRA.
