PEMRA didn’t provide details about the indecent content aired by these TV channels but highlighted the events that were indecent and unacceptable.

Geo Entertainment

Geo TV showed a drama on 7th August 2017 during which indecent content was aired. This content was against the social norms of country and also violating PEMRA rules. An anonymous PEMRA official told that “Khaali Haath” is the name of that drama.

ARY Communication

On 10th April 2017, similar type of indecent content was aired on HBO Pakistan. PEMRA issued the notice to ARY because the channel has the landing rights of HBO in Pakistan.
