Petition filed against SAMAA TV in PEMRA

A senior journalist Umair Yasir has filed a petition against SAMAA TV in PEMRA for showing indecent content that is spoiling the youth of Pakistan.

According to details, SAMAA TV along with the Indian army are working together to spoil the youth of Pakistan by showing indecent content on air.

“SAMAA TV is showing indecent content that is not only spoiling the youth but as well as tarnishing religious as well as cultural values of Pakistan”, said Umair Yasir.

He went on to say,

“There is no forgiveness for such channels who are intentionally showing such indecent programs that are spoiling our young generation”.

As per details, CNBC Africa, CNBC Arabia, Forbes Africa are also partners of Samaa. Under Section 25 of PEMRA, no TV license can be issued with any foreign person or foreign funding. The petitioner has requested PEMRA that the license of Samaa TV is against the law and it should be revoked.

Following the case, lawyer Taimur Ali Shah said,

“Such programs shown on SAMAA TV are becoming the reason behind women harassment”.

Lawyer Fazal Zahid said,

“PEMRA should take action against SAMAA TV as soon as possible as such indecent contents are against Islamic laws”.

SAMAA TV has a well-organized plan to include un-Islamic and immoral content in the program in order to mislead the new generation, spreading obscenity and filth in an attempt to mislead Pakistani society.

Program Danger, Control Room, Emergency Ward, it happens and my story is a clear example of this.
