Pakistan electronic media regulatory authority on Thursday banned Geo morning show for five days.
Pemra has prohibited the morning show titled Geo Pakistan from broadcasting or rebroadcasting fresh, old or repeat on Geo News for a period of five days from April 03 to April 07. The decision came as a result of showing objectionable/indecent content on the morning show.
The show was banned following a number of complaints from citizens and senior journalists after it aired a clip of a man and woman kissing during its March 15 show. According to the statement released by Pemra, a fine of Rs1 million has also been imposed on Geo News.
