This is such a great news! Thank you @fawadchaudhry and @MinistryofST for this much needed initiative. It will open doors of opportunities for many many talented people and eventually help Pakistan reach a truly global audience.

Osman Khalid But, however, is not exactly pleased with PEMRA’s role in laying out the content guidelines for the service. He would prefer if someone else created them.
Can someone - literally anyone else prepare this content guideline.— Osman Khalid Butt (@aClockworkObi) October 23, 2020
Let's not forget PEMRA issued a show-cause notice to Udaari over 'immoral content' because it was highlighting child abuse. https://t.co/S6ZfuOJkUr
