ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) issued three show cause notices, including one to ARY News channel over comments on a statement by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on Friday.

The regulator took exception to remarks made by Shahid Latif, a guest on an ARY News programme, that termed a recent statement by the prime minister blasphemous.

Shahid Latif made the remarks during the programme, ‘The Reporters’, which aired on Thursday (March 23).

“This is a very dangerous trend. The hosts of the programme did not intervene on this occasion nor stopped him from passing such comments, which is a violation of Pemra rules,” the authority said in a press release.
