Pakistan Supreme Court barred Indian films and TV shows in private Channels

Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Tuesday stopped private channels from airing Indian movies and television shows, among escalating tensions between the 2 countries following the Pulwama terror attack.

“The apex court has barred private channels from airing Indian material,” state-run Radio Pakistan said.

The move came a week after Pakistan’s Information and Broadcasting Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain declared Pakistan film exhibitors association will be boycotting the Indian movies following Indian air strikes on a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Balakot in Pakistan’s restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province last month.

Hussain also said that he has directed the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority ( PEMRA ) to break down on “made-in-India advertisements”. The apex court last instated a ban on Indian material in October 2018.
