Cable network disconnected

Shabab-i-Milli and Jaish-i-Muhammad jointly launched a drive against obscenity, vulgarity and indecency in Kotaddu subdivision and they got disconnected the cable network in the city by the cable operators. They also threatened the operators to shift their machinery from this area immediately otherwise they would set it ablaze..

Cable network operators have approached to the police and Tehsil administration of Kotaddu but none of them came forward for their help and asked them to contact the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) in this regard. These two organisations have also decided to remove dish-antennas in their next phase because Hindu-dominated channels were breeding vulgarity, obscenity and other social evils.
