The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) has directed television channels to stop dramas which cotain indecent or controversial content.

“Such content is not only distressing for viewers but is also against the commonly accepted standards of decency,” the media regulatory body stated in a notification issued on Tuesday.

The notification further adds that Pemra has been receiving massive public complaints on Pakistan Citizen Portal (PCP), Pemra Complaints Call Center and Feedback System as well as through social media and WhatsApp.

The directive comes after viewers criticized content shown in dramas which are portraying indecent scenes, extramarital relations, violence, inappropriate dressing, rape scenes, use of drugs and alcohol and physical intimacy.
