Some private TV channels refuse to mourn APS tragedy and run comedy shows… PEMRA sleeping

By Iram Salim

What a shame for the PTI government and toothless Pakistan Media Regularly Authority (Pemra) that they failed to stop ome unbridled private TV channels from airing comedy shows on the fourth anniversary of Army Public School Peshawar in which over 140 children were martyred.

Pemra could only issue guidelines and nothing else as TV channels like Geo, Dunya, C24, GNN, Lahore News flouted it in air and ran the comedy shows on Sunday.

What a shame. Information Minister was quite to express his disappointment through a tweet complaining about channels. But instead of this he should make Pemra strong.

سانحہ APS کے احترام میں ‏کسی ایک چینل نے بھی اپنے کامیڈی پروگرام  منسوخ نہیں کئے جب آپ توجہ دلاتے ہیں تو کہا جاتا ہے وزیر اطلاعات میڈیا کے خلاف ہے۔۔ خدارا کچھ اپنی ذمہ داری بھی محسوس کریں ، کچھ غم ہمارے مشترکہ ہیں قوم کے ہیں سیاسی جماعتوں کے نہیں ۔۔۔

Such TV channels that are not bothered about national tragedy should be sent packing to some other country. Here they have no place. Pak Destiny
