The Holy month of Ramadan is just around the corner, while we are excited to celebrate this season with religious devotion our media bigwigs are busy in developing strategies to earn maximum financial lucrative all this month.
A couple of weeks ago Ministry of Religious Affairs wrote a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan suggesting guidelines for media organizations regarding Ramazan broadcasts.
According to these guidelines, the transmission shall be anchored by religious well-versed, and educated persons and they should follow modesty in their dress code and appearance to honor the sanctity of the holy month of Ramadan.
It also mentioned that controversial religious matters shouldn’t be discussed and sanctity of all religious personalities and sects should be maintained.
Special instruction has been given related to game shows that they shouldn’t be aired before or after Sehar/Iftar timings.
Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority hasn’t issued any official statement supporting these guidelines.
Putting aside any guidelines almost all the channels have signed prominent showbiz personalities to host Ramzan transmission and none of them has picked any religious scholars for the task.
