KARACHI - The Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) has condemned the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority’s (PEMRA) move to take TV channels off air following a crackdown on religious protesters in Islamabad.

According to a statement, CPNE President Zia Shahid and General Secretary Ejazul Haq expressed serious concerns over the order, and demanded that the government should immediately restore the broadcast.

They noted that the suspension of broadcast was curbing the citizens’ right to information, and was also causing confusion and panic among the masses.
