Pakistan restores ban on Indian content on TV channels

During the hearing the top judge also suspended the high court decision in this regard

Pakistan's Supreme Court has re-imposed a ban on all Indian TV channels, overturning an earlier order from a lower court.

A bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan was hearing a petition filed by a producers association against a verdict announced by the Lahore High Court (LHC) allowing the local media to air the Indian content.

They are trying to obstruct the construction of our dam and we can not even ban their channel, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said. Nisar said as he ordered the broadcast of Indian shows to be "shut down".

The ban was first implemented by PEMRA in 2016 after it received clearance from the Pakistani government.

In 2016, amid escalating tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority had imposed a ban on airing Indian content on local television and radio channels. The decision was a fallout of relations between the two countries after the Uri attack.

Hawkeyes Preview Matchup with Penn State
The 6-foot, 202-pound McSorley has started 35 straight games for Penn State since the start of the 2016 season. No. 18 Iowa opened the game as almost a touchdown underdog, but has played convincingly in the first half.

Pakistan's Supreme Court on Saturday imposed a ban on broadcasting Ind-ian content on Pakistani channels.

Indian movies are popular in Pakistan and throughout the region, and Bollywood employs many Pakistani musicians and actors.

The CJP suspended verdict of the Lahore High Court allowing Indian content on Pakistani channels.

While the ban was lifted in February this year, the permission to air teleplays or television dramas was still not granted.
