'Stop airing hugging scenes in dramas', PEMRA directs TV channels

Islamabad, Oct 23 (UNI) The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed local television channels to "stop airing caress and hug scenes" in dramas, as such content was receiving a lot of complaints.
PEMRA, in a notification on Friday, said a "considerable stratum of the society" believes that dramas are not depicting the "true picture" of the Pakistani society, Geo reported.
"Hugs/caress scenes/extramarital relations, vulgar/bold dressing, bed scenes, and intimacy of married couple are being glamorised in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," the notification said.
