ISLAMABAD – Senior journalist Ansar Abbasi has criticized Pemra and the incumbent authorities over a TV business and demanded of Prime Minister Imran Khan to take motion and ban such “vulgar dance” movies on nationwide televisions.
Abbasi, in a tweet, mentioned that TV channels would now air Mujra to promote biscuits. “Where is Pemra? Will PM Imran Khan take any action on this matter? Wasn’t Pakistan built in the name of Islam,” he questioned.
He was referring to a 1 minute 37 seconds long commercial of a local manufacturing biscuit company (TV commercial), featuring Mehwish Hayat.

Reacting to this, TV host Shafaat Ali said that a lot of obscenity is really spreading, you should throw your TV in the trash and make a video and upload it. People like you will also be encouraged.
واقعی بہت فحاشی پھیل رہی ہے، آپ کو چاہئیے اپنا ٹی وی کچرے میں پھینک دیں اور وڈیو بنا کر اپلوڈ کر دیں۔ آپ کے ہمخیال لوگوں کو بھی ترغیب ہوگی۔ https://t.co/oZFp7L8wbs
