Punjab Assembly passes resolution to enforce ban on celebrities hosting Ramadan transmissions
The Punjab Assembly has requested the federal government to ensure that TV channels direct their Ramadan transmissions with decency and only invite religious scholars to the shows.
The resolution was submitted on April 30 on behalf of the Pakistan Rah-e-Haq party’s parliamentary leader Maulana Muhammad Muavia Azam.
It states, “Having people associated with showbiz host Ramazan transmissions is an unfortunate practice. Ramazan transmissions are hosted by people who have no affiliation with the ranks of the Islamic faith. This practice afflicts the spirits of millions of Muslims every year.”
The purpose of the resolution is to persuade Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to ban stars and popular entertainment luminaires to feature in Ramadan transmission.
Many celebrities have hosted Ramadan transmissions in recent years, including Fahad Mustafa, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Ayesha Khan, Juggan Kazim, Sanam Baloch, Imran Abbas, among others.
