PEMRA to stop airing scenes containing ‘indecent dressing’, ‘intimacy’

Following many complaints, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) asked local television broadcasters to “stop showing caress and hug scenes” in plays on Friday.
According to PEMRA, a “major stratum of society” believes that plays do not portray the “real picture” of Pakistani society.
“Hugs/caress scenes/extramarital relations, vulgar/bold dressing, bed scenes, and intimacy of married couple are being glamorized in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society,” the notification said.
