National Anthem on TV Channels

 

Not many like me may be knowing due to the lack of wider publicity, whether by default or design by the media moguls, that on Friday last PEMRA issued an official advice to all TV channels to telecast national anthem before the start of everyday morning transmission to promote patriotism.

 

PEMRA  has  also raised serious concerns over excessive religious consumerism and commercial programmes aired during the holy month of Ramazan  which were not only lamented by the legislators but also by a large segment of the society who believed that such programmes were against the norms of Islam and violated the sanctity of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

 

A good step though taken belatedly and one hopes that PEMRA would ensure its implicit implementation also.
