Islamabad: Pakistan's Chief Justice (CJ) Shakib Nisar said on Wednesday that the Supreme Court will not allow Indian programs to be shown on Pakistani TV channels because they 'harm our culture'.

According to Dawn's news, Chief Justice Nisar made these remarks while hearing the appeal of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) against the decision of the High Court of Prohibition of Broadcasting of Indian Programs on Pakistan's TV Channels.
According to the newspaper, Salim Baig, head of the authority, told the court that 65 percent of the programs shown on 'Filma jia channel' are foreign and many times this figure goes up to 80 percent.
On this, the Chief Justice said, "We will not allow the broadcast of Indian programs on Pakistani channels." The lawyer of the Authority told the Chief Justice, "Filma is not a news channel but entertainment channel, it does not propagate." The Chief Justice replied, 'Though it is harming our culture.' The hearing of this case has been postponed till the first week of February.
