The Senate Standing Committee on Information and Broadcasting today asked cable operators not to show Indian TV channels and dramas.

The committee met today in Islamabad with Senator Ghulam Ali in the chair.

Member committee Senator Tariq Azeem said that he had twice adopted resolutions recommending ban on Indian television channels. However, the resolutions were not yet implemented.
The committee said there were approximately 1500 cable operators in the country. Every operator was paying only Rs200, 000 per annum but was earning million of rupees through advertisements.

The committee urged the government to take notice of the situation.

Ali ruled that if the issue of ban on Indian channels was not solved through the committee then the matter be raised at the upper house.
