The year 2017 is going to be remembered as the year of bans. After Bol, Geo and Abb Tak, PEMRA has now suspended the license of a private Pakistani TV channel, ‘Jalwa TV’ which is owned by APNA TV.
The suspension has been imposed for 7 days, beginning on the 29th of April, 2017 and will be lifted on the 6th of May, 2017. The reason for suspension has been stated to be the obscene and indecent material aired on Jalwa TV on the 30th March and 4th of April 2017.
PEMRA has directed the music channel to air a public apology on their TV screens on the 6th of May while tickers will be aired throughout the suspension period.
