Blocked channels are back- Reality revealed!

Broadcasting Association (PBA) are, all over again, on the rise these days after the planned closure of popular entertainment channels by some cable operators. Country’s most popular entertainment channels, including ARY Digital, GEO Entertainment, HUM TV, Express Entertainment, TV ONE and KTN Entertainment were shut down on Friday, are back to their normal telecast now.

A good question that has clicked every viewer, was the fact that why actually these channels were blocked, and what brought the broadcast back. We discussed in detail that what made these channels go in dark. However, no appropriate reasons were highlighted for the re-telecast.

After putting all the pressure tactics in action, Cable operators had to revive the broad casting of all blocked channels. Now things are all well and good! Whether with this approach cable operators wanted to get re-open Indian channels, which were closed on Supreme Court orders, or they wanted to stop the channels from independent coverage of upcoming general elections due to some political affiliations. Keeping out-of-the-way all the intentions, we are glad that we got our favorite channels back.

Since huge financial loss has been tolerated by owners of the private TV channels in course of shutting down their channels which is itself against the licensing regulations of PEMRA, PBA took legal action against the officials of PEMRA as well as the cable operators and finally resolved their complaints by holding a joint meeting between CAPand PBA.

Undoubtedly, also the power of viewers’ affection with Pakistani dramas made up all good to bring blocked channels back as Pakistani drama has given a setback to the dramas of Star plus. With powerful script, limited episodes, soulful stories and the efforts of drama makers, Pakistani drama has once again reached at the peaks of glory and now viewers really don’t desire to watch those unrealistic, never-ending and brainless Indian dramas. This credit goes to the story writers who focused many issues of society and these stories touch the heart of many people all over the country. Now people (particularly women) don’t look as if to gossip all on Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi or Kum Kum but they are rather concerned about rising social issues of their own society.

Pakistan Cable Association wanted PEMRA to allow cable operators for on airing of Indian TV channels as it gives them benefit for their ads and some people asked them for Indian Channels. Cable operators and our public should take serious notice on this issue as on airing of Indian channels is really not in the benefit of Pakistani society. We should sense out of the box and should not chew over everything with profit or loss but one should prefer values and morals over others. Well, I am in opposition to all Indian channels. What do you want, mindless Indian dramas or moral values of society? Do Share Your Views about it.

For the time being, Enjoy your favorite Drama Channels and hope that no such week ever returns, where you have nothing to watch on TV, other than breathtaking news

Stay Safe,

    I absolutely support you in banning all Indian Channels, they are promoting nothing but vulgarity and senseless romance, family fued and just rubbish, all should ban forever, not a single Indian channel should be airedon ever in Pakistan. If we really interested in saving our young generation, we have to stop not only Indian channels but also all those Indian dramas or shows on other pakistani private channels. Indian films have already done huge damage to our society and specially youth, actually indian films should also be banned completely.

      Agree with you Qudsia but Pakistani channels should also follow some code of ethics. They telecast all the Indian vulgar reality shows. Our advertisements are also getting vulgar and vulgar than before.

      v true n i agree….i have seen many kids watching starplus wid their moms they can sing full gaytri mantar n soon they will start worship of their toys n dolls ……………………..wat we r giving 2 our generation???????

    • kisekiboa

      I agree with you! I also think its time for Pakistan to create its own culture and entertainment! Being a young Pakistani American whenever my friends or people around me mention a Pakistani song or actor/actress they label them a Indian/Bollywood! When I tell them they ask me " Why are they in Indian movies and shows then?" and "So you guys also do this stuff like they do in the movies" It sends out the wrong image for Pakistanis and International people alike! ITS TIME FOR CHANGE!! I hope the new generation and old generation realize this! Also Indian shows and movies show their Bajan! Why would you want your kids in Pakistan to look and learn such a thing? There should be more Quran or Faith programs on TV in the morning so that our people and the kids start their day in the name of Allha!

  • Badtameez

    Agree with u qudsia…100000%

  • kashhaf

    our cable operators dont have any moral value. on the other hand indian cable operators and even owners of channels dont allow pakistani content.

  • Xadee

    Very true…Pakistani dramas r best.we dOnt want tO see their dramas especially when they dOn't want tO see Our cOntent/channels.

  • kiran

    Totally agree!!

    • Baba Jani

      Indian dramas are totally flopped in Pakistan and only 5% of viewers are still stuck with this mania… Pakistani TV dramas are again at their Golden Age and more than two dozen dramas are viral these days…

      PTV is still moving like a snail… And We should not discourage our new talent by repeatedly comparing them with veteran actors/actresses of old PTV era… Many among new actor’s lot are doing REMARKABLE work.

      Cable operators should stop creating the illusion that Indian Channels are still popular in Pakistan… Its misinformation… Just go to common streets of Pakistani cities… Truth will be revealed…Indian soaps on Colours, Imagine, SAB, Sahara, Sony, Star and Zee Tv are pathetic. The same over acting, gibberish dialogues, multi-layered makeup and gigantic ostentatious sets everywhere. Believe me Pakistanis are lucky in this regard and are missing nothing.

    I agree with you and want to add a few points to it. Indian dramas and even their cartoons for kids are full of their religious propaganda. Almost all of Hindu religions' super-natural but unrealistic characters like Krishna, Gnash and Hanumaan are supposed to be real even in their most so-called realistic shows, cartoons and serials. But on the other hand our Pakistani Plays are also getting vulgar in dialogues, dresses, topics and closeness of characters . Vulgarity can not be allowed on the name of reality. It is becoming difficult for the parents to decide whether to keep a cable connection in home or not.

  • waqas

    all indian channels n dramas should be banned in Pakistan as they r spoiling our generation….they show pooja (worship) of bhagwan n our kids r learning this…the ppl who r watching indian dramas or showing 2 their kids should be ashamed …… drama "iss pyar ko kia naam doon" has promoted so much vulgarity in young generation,,,,,

  • mao

    i read ur articles..they are gud…n giving the sense of gr8 concerned…… yes we are promoting nothing but vulgarity and very sorry to say this has been passed to are generation…….every channel needs trp and nothing else…… no one is concerned with the morality and values……
    i believe that pakistani culture itself doesnt exist any more…..because now its a combo (multi culture)…….. the foreign content must be banned…but who will do that….?? the most popular channels which are operated by others and not pakistanis………
    our own channels only want the money and highest ranking….thts all…… its none of their bussiness who n how the society is being affected……….. n the most important thing may be some people wont agree with me but channels show what the public want to see……
