Islamabad: The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) on Tuesday issued a show cause notice to Geo Entertainment channel for airing ‘inappropriate content’ including ‘suicide scenes’ during its show and has ordered the channel to explain its position on June 21.

According to the Pemra notification, Geo TV’s anchor Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain in his June 13 programme showed scenes ‘of a girl committing suicide’. The media regulatory body called for an explanation from Geo TV and questioned ‘why it should not ban the programme Ina-
am Ghar’.
