Ramzan TV shows gone too far?

  • Most TV channels in Pakistan have special Ramzan transmissions, which traditionally used to be religious programs about the blessing of holy month of Ramzan and with religious discussions.

    However, the TV channels have commercialized the Ramzan transmissions and seems to be competing other channels for higher rating while giving cheap entertainment that has nothing to do with Ramzan. The hosts are usually celebrities and guests are disrespected for the sake of gifts that are sponsored by different business..

    Here are few samples of the TV programs that can be easily regarded as new low for ramzan transmission in our media history:



  • Isn't there is an organisation called PEMRA appointed by the Government to ensure the decency of the programmes broadcast?

  • We all should accept the new reality, that is, the religious programs are bring in nature. No one wants to watch them. People would rather watch a cricket match, movie, or a drama on another channel. There is nothing wrong with making religion a little interesting and fun. If these theatrics can attract more people and in that process they learn a little about the religion, I wouldn't call it a losing proposition.

    Pakistanis are a little behind in this regard. Xmas programs and tv shows have nothing to do with birth of Jesus. It's all about holidays, gift exchanges, trees, and Santa.

  • PEMRA issued notice to Amir Liaqat:



  • پمرا یعنی بندرکے ہاتھ میں ناریل

  • جب مداریوں اور شعبدہ بازوں کو آپ اپنا مذہبی پیشوا بنا لیں تو پھر اسی قسم کی مصنوعات مارکیٹ میں آئیں گی۔

    حیف ہے ان لوگوں پر جو اس مداری کی کرامات سے فیضیاب ہوتے ہیں۔
