PEMRA (Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority) has recommended that the license of Geo TV should be cancelled. The reason is none other than the issue of airing blasphemous content in their morning show Utho Jaago Pakistan. In this program Shaista Lodhi, Veena Malik and Asad Bashir Khan were the main characters where a munaqibat was played during the marriage ceremony of Veena Malik and Asad.
PEMRA has already sent Geo TV a show cause notice some days ago regarding this issue of airing blasphemous content where during the marriage a munaqibat was played while Veena Malik was being made a bride. PEMRA spokesperson revealed that over 10,000 complaints were received against the morning show blasphemous content and these complaints were forwarded to complaint council for review and recommendation was asked.
