The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has its eyes on every channel! Nobody is safe from the media watchdog. The minute any network puts a toe out of line, PEMRA hits back with a warning, sometimes a hefty fine and even a ban.

This time its target became the leading channel of Pakistan, Geo News. And well we don’t blame PEMRA for serving the notice to the network. After all, they broadcasted content against Pakistans’s army.

Apparently, the show ‘Aapas ki Baat’ dared to attack the armed forces with accusations of ‘institutional corruption’


After receiving a large number of complaints, PEMRA issued a notice to GEO and later, slapped a mighty fine, worth PKR 1 Million.

The authority, on the recommendations of the Personal Hearing Committee, also suspended the private TV channel ‘Starlite,’ for seven days for airing obscene and vulgar content.

Hence proved: Nobody can mess with PEMRA!
