Pakistan Press Foundation

THE regulation of TV and radio channels is a subject of direct relevance to all citizens. Electronic media have been allowed to become an informative but distortive, often incoherent determinant of public discourse and agenda-setting.

Pakistanis turn to cinemas to heal crises hangover

Pakistan Press Foundation

By: Saira Agha Many of a common man’s success stories begin whilst taking an inspiration from a movie. If not that, watching a movie is sure to drown out a person’s sorrow, lethal predicaments, troublesome lives if only for three hours. I remember watching Chuck Russell’s ‘The Mask’, while going through a very trying period […]
