The Sindh High Court has reverted its decision of banning the controversial drama serial, confirmed Minal Khan.

On September 10, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) had released a statement imposing a ban on the drama serial Jalan from airing on television.

According to the notification, the action is was taken against the production because it carries content that violates social and religious values.

The statement also added that continuous warnings were issued against the channel by the regulatory body. They had been informed to emend the content of the show, however, since no changes were made and the channel refused to comply, so the show has now been banned under Section 27 of the Pemra Ordinance.
