Pak should not ban In­dian con­tent on its lo­cal TV

Mail Today - - COFFEE BREAK -

IN­DIA and Pak­istan share many cul­tural and so­cial com­mon lik­ing like mu­sic, films, sports and food etc. Sadly, Pak­istan has im­posed a com­plete ban on In­dian con­tent on lo­cal TV and FM ra­dio, base­lessly dam­ag­ing the Pak­istani cul­ture.

Im­ran Khan, PM of Pak who has a global ex­pe­ri­ence must un­der­stand that no coun­try can live in iso­la­tion and run the govt with­out any con­trol/un­der in­flu­ence of its mil­i­tary and ISI in the in­ter­est of over­all de­vel­op­ment of Pak.

The im­por­tance of free me­dia in a demo­cratic set up can­not be un­der­lined. For free me­dia, im­por­tant chan­nels of Pak like GEO and few more im­por­tant chan­nels of most coun­tries must be made avail­able free of ad­di­tional cost.

The same way Pak govt must al­low In­dian TV chan­nels in Pak­istan too. It will have con­tact be­tween the two coun­tries and would re­sult in bet­ter re­la­tions.
