Various Pakistani television channels are broadcasting TV dramas of different countries like India, Turkey and Spain. This trend for broadcasting of foreign dramas is increasing day and day. With the telecasting of these television dramas, the culture and customs of other countries are also given their influence on our society. This trend will become harmful for Pakistani dramas and tell upon our customs and cultures. The Indian culture has already disturbed our culture and customs and a true Pakistani cannot afford the destruction and devastation of our culture and customs.
For showing anger and the reservation of Pakistani artists, various popular and famous drama artists including Qavi Khan, Mustafa Qureshi, Firdous Jamal, Ghulam Mohi Uddin, Maria Wasti, Bushra Ansari, Usman Peerzada, Rashid Mahmood, Abid Ali, Faisal Qureshi, Humayaun Saeed, Sardar Kamran, Samina Ahmed, Irfan Mughal, Saba Munir, Shoukat Ali and various other artists made a peaceful protests and they presented their demands to the chairman of UPA, Rashid Khawaja. The honoured artists showed their reservation against the broadcasting of dramas of other countries after dubbing them into Urdu. Some of the dramas have shown the scene which are not suitable for out cultural and moral values and they cannot be seen sitting with the families. They made protest and demanded to the chairman of PEMRA and the responsible people of government to look into the matter and stop the telecasting of foreign dramas to save the cultural and moral values of our country and society and keep intact our moral values with the broadcasting of our dramas.
Most of our dramas are watched in different countries and they are liked due to the high moral value and the standard of acting with good script which make our dramas popular not only in Pakistan but also in other countries. The participants of the procession of artists held the poster on which it was written that “say no to cultural invasion” and they made peaceful protest with the responsible persons of PEMRA and government.
