The ban order on broadcasting of Imran Khan’s speeches was withdrawn
Islamabad: The government has issued instructions to PEMRA to withdraw the notification banning Imran Khan’s speeches, after which the notification issued was suspended.
According to the details, the instructions given by PEMRA to all the TV channels regarding live broadcasting of the speeches of Chairman PTI Khan have been withdrawn.
The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has lifted the ban imposed on the broadcast of speeches and press conferences of former Prime Minister Imran Khan after some time. Earlier, all the TV channels and broadcasters across the country were strictly ordered not to carry any speech or press conference of Chairman PTI live on air.
It should be noted that after the prohibition order issued by PEMRA some time ago, a series of severe condemnations from different schools of thought started. The prevailing assumption is that the government lifted the ban on broadcasting Imran Khan’s speeches due to public pressure because PEMRA’s actions against the ban on Imran Khan’s speeches were condemned by PBA, AMAND, and other journalistic organizations.
The Association of Electronic Media Editors and News Directors (AMND) said that this move is aimed at banning expression.
🚨 Govt lift the ban on broadcasting Imran Khan’s speeches.

You couldn't make this up if you want. PEMRA bans Imran Khan at 7 PM. The ban is lifted at 8 PM. 13 parties running Pakistan like headless chickens.
