According to details, the PEMRAS Ordinance 2002 prohibits the broadcast of Imran Khan’s speeches. The PTI Chief’s speeches would not be broadcast on any TV channel, according to the PEMRA notification.
According to the PEMRA notification, Imran Khan made baseless allegations against national institutions in his speeches. They went on to say that broadcasting such content on national television would breed hatred in society.
PEMRA also stated that Imran Khan’s speeches endanger national security. Article 19 of the constitution prohibits him from broadcasting his speeches.
The development comes just a day after Imran Khan made controversial remarks about the military during an address following an assassination attempt on his life during the PTI’s long march against the government.
On November 3, Imran Khan and other PTI leaders were shot at during the party’s long march near Wazirabad. The PTI chief was taken to Lahore’s Shaukat Khanum Hospital for treatment.
On Friday, the PTI Chief addressed his supporters from the hospital. He claimed that PM Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and a military man plotted the attack on him. He also demanded that the three government officials resign.
Earlier on October 28, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) barred all news media outlets from covering the long march of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
