The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) took notice on Sunday of a complaint against Information Minister Pervez Rashid for allegedly threatening an anchor of a private TV channel on air.
According to a press statement released by the regulatory authority, Dr Shahid Masood filed a complaint against the federal minister for criticising him and allegedly threatening him during a speech aired on public and private TV channels.
“After taking notice of the filed complaint, Pemra has conveyed the matter to Pemra Council of Complainants for taking further action,” the press release said.
In his complaint, Dr Masood, who hosts a political show on a private TV channel, maintained that the information minister’s remarks not only hurt his sentiments but also undermined his reputation all over the world.
