PEMRA Issues Notice To Geo Entertainment For Showing Game Shows During Ramazan

The holy month of Ramazan is here and it’s the chance to enhance our knowledge about Islam.

With so many channels and shows these days, it is difficult to keep tabs on everything that’s being aired, however, Pemra doesn’t fail to stay active on a few matters, to say the least.

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) has issued show cause notices to three TV channels, including Geo Entertainment, for violating the guidelines regarding Ramazan transmission.

Pemra accused the channels of broadcasting the quiz programmes before 9 pm in violation of para V of the directions.

The watchdog had issued guidelines for media outlets to follow during the month of Ramazan and the notification stated that the game shows would not be aired on any channel before 9 PM. Moreover, the game shows will be banned completely during last ten days of Ramazan.
