AAJ News transmission has been blocked along with 2 other TV channels on Sunday in various parts of the country, especially in Karachi. Despite repeated assurances from the democratic government about freedom of speech, PEMRA has illegally blocked the transmission of 3 news channels. Is the PPP government repeating the same old mistakes, that led to the downfall of Musharraf’s regime?
The government should abandon creative tactics to twist the arms of media and instead focus on improving the delivery of tasks, for which they have been elected for. Imposition of curbs on media has never changed the realities and could increase the negative score for the ruling party.
