Most cable operators in Pakistan shut all news channels, including the state-run TV and showed broadcast of only four selected TV channels on the occasion of the rally of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
The cable operators raised their fingers towards military secret agencies when they were asked ” Who gave orders of this ban?”
It is pertinent to recall that the broadcast of a big channel had been interrupted for the last four or five days.
The people told that only four channels were on air while all other channels were closed or their broadcasts were stopped, including state-run TV, and on this objection, the cable operators stopped receiving phone calls at their offices.
Provoked people complained that such routine had been pursued for the last two days.
They said that the News channels were interrupted or sometime sound was closed.
They said that the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority should take notice of this practice.
