Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has rolled out a new notification slamming the content being shown in Pakistani TV Dramas.

As per the notice, the media authority has deemed the industry as ‘deteriorating, indecent and not depicting the true picture of Pakistan.’

Vulgarity in Pakistan: PEMRA Issues New Rules for TV Serials

PEMRA stated:

 “Indecent scenes, dialogues, extramarital relations, violence and exploitation are being glamourised, ignoring ethical bindings of Pakistani society as well Pemra laws.”

The Diyar-e-Dil star, Osman Khalid Butt was the first to react to PEMRA’s notice and took to Twitter to express his views.

Taking a savage dig, OKB tweeted:

Not every drama serial is meant to be watched with the family. Pinky & Babloo can be put to bed before, no?

However, he rightly pointed out that earlier PEMRA banned HUM TV’s hit drama ‘Udaari’, a drama that condemned child sexual abuse in Pakistan.

Friendly reminder that this is the same body that tried to ban Udaari

The actor added that such notices by PEMRA only discourage content diversification on Pakistani TV.

The Balu Mahi hero did not shy away from indulging in a heated debate with everybody who was agreeing with the media authority.

Trolling his trolls, Butt is on a mission to silence his haters once and for all!

But the keyboard warriors are showing no signs of slowing down.

What do you think of PEMRA’s notice? Do you think Osman Khalid Butt is justified in his views?
