The transmissions of ARY NEWS have been restored after outcry over shutting down of the transmissions of the news channel.

The ARY NEWS was pulled off the air Friday night in various cities of Pakistan. The transmission was suspended when channel’s popular program “Views on News with Dr Shahid Masood” was on-air.

The viewers from various cities telephoned to the ARY NEWS offices that the channel has been pulled off the air or pushed out to the remote numbers depriving several viewers from the popular Views on News programme hosted by Dr. Shahid Masood.

Moreover, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has affirmed closure of the ARY News transmissions that the decision was not taken due to Views on News programme but due to transmission of a video of Faisal Shahzad.

It is recalled that the video was also transmitted at other channels on Friday but ARY NEWS suffered the brunt.
