The Pemra ban comes after “monitoring for several weeks that Amir Liaquat has repeatedly been violating Clause 3 (1) (h) (k) (l), Clause 4 (7) (c), Clause 13 (1), (2), Clause 22 (1) (3), Clause 23 of the Electronic Media Code of Conduct 2015, Section 20 of the Pemra Ordinance 2002 and Rule 15 of Pemra Rules 2009”.
“Amir Liaquat is also prohibited from delivering any hate speech, declaring anyone Kaafir or Ghaddar on any TV Channel. In case of violation, action shall be initiated against such channel(s) under Section 27 of the Pemra Ordinance 2002 as amended by the Pemra (Amendment) Act 2007,” it added.
Earlier on Thursday, rights activist Jibran Nasir moved the media watchdog against the TV presenter, a former member of Karachi’s MQM party. In his complaint letter to Pemra, Jibran stated the anchor of BOL Network had started a “malicious, defamatory and life endangering campaign” against him and the bloggers who went missing between January 4 to 8.
