Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) on Friday prohibited TV host and Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf part Dr Amir Liaquat from showing up on any TV divert in Pakistan for thirty days in the wake of decision that he had abused a few segments of PEMRA Ordinance in a TV program a day prior.
The media controller, in a warning issued, expressed that Liaquat, amid his channel’s Ramzan transmission on May 24, had “broadcast live, un-altered and immediately” a video call from Gujrat wherein the guest had brought up a dubious religious issue.
PEMRA noticed that Dr Liaquat “only to create sensation and with a specific end goal to accomplish greatest rating”, made “outlandish show based on religion and hurt the suppositions of various groups and open on the loose”.
After this occurrence, Dr Liaquat “quit the show, leaving the live stage for the visitor Ulemas who traded very unforgiving contentions,” the notice includes.
PEMRA said the show’s substance disregarded Section 20(b), (c) (f) of PEMRA Ordinance 2002 among others, taking note of that Dr Liaquat “is abusing/manhandling the stage without sticking to the arrangements of PEMRA rules”.
