No Indian TV channel can be viewed in the country after October 15, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has said, a media report said on Saturday.

According to The Nation, Pakistani people have demanded action be taken against “all Indian channels”. The step comes as tensions rise between the two neighbouring nations after India said that it conducted surgical strikes across the Line of Control at terror launch pads in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

According to the reports, the crackdown will be held against all cable operators in the country in case the orders are not followed.

It also alleged that Pakistani programmes have been banned in India and Indian artistes have given negative messages against Islamabad which resulted in provoking the public to demand the closure of Indian channels.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has now demanded replacement of the Pakistani actors Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan in their respective Bollywood projects Raees and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

At a press conference in Mumbai, Amey Khopkar, President of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s film wing, said: “The day Pakistan will stop attacking our country, we will extend the hand of friendship. We do not have anything against art but the artists who are employed in India remained mum on the terror attack in Uri. We gave them an ultimatum of 48 hours to leave India. You can rest assured that they have left, but if we find any Pakistani artiste, we won’t spare (them).”

MNS workers protested outside filmmaker Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions office for casting Fawad in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.Talking about Karan, Khopkar said: “Karan Johar isn’t bigger than the government. If Karan Johar and Raees makers don’t replace the actors, we will not allow Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees to release.” Raees marks Mahira’s entry into Bollywood and features superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the lead, while “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” stars Fawad with Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma.

      KIM Bon saidlt;br/gt;I am sorry but Indian people are too stupid to see what's going on. Forget declaring stan terrorist in us parliament . You can't even touch them. Geopolitically , stan is too important . It has two Vito powers on its side . US , even though it has tried to cozy up India in the recent years but you should not forget that all supplies to the US troops in Afghanistan go through stan and since us troops are not going away anytime soon, india should not expect any radical changes in America atude towards stan. China , it's pretty obvious, CPEC. China wants easy access to central Asia and middle east and they would not stop at anything to achieve it......so I am sorry to say , you are pretty much helpless against the atrocities of stan..... it's not stan which is isolated ,it's india

            What's the use of banning TV channels? We are obliterating your laadla terrorists and you are banning our Saas-Bahu serials? What are you going to achieve by banning Saas-Bahu? I don't understand the reasoning of such actions. It's meaningless.

              If Indian channels are not banned Porki's citizens will access facts and won't believe the propaa being spread by their own channels. Porki's should also advise all their overseas citizens who run "Indian" restaurants or p off as Indians not to do so and call themselves "proud Porkistani's".

                Ask Salluu Bhai and Karan jokar whether all Indian channels are terrorist channels ? These self proclaimed artists of Bollywood can go any extent which guarantees money.

                      India initiated restrictions on stani actors/actresses working in India and other steps are taken or threats are being floated, so on stani side, cinema owners and film distributors also suspended the viewing of Indian films in stan. As far as ban on TV channels is concerned. These are not banned as yet. I can see SONY and ZEEs networks right now as off 1st October, 2016 at 4:50 PST............. As regards ban on goods (bilateral trade). By this way India will bear more loss as compare to stan. stan's exports to India are less than Indian imports in stan, so India's review will be affected.

                        Now here a Free advice from me to the directors and producers of flims who arein their mid of the projects with stani actors --just make the actors in the stories meet an accident or something and they go for a plastic surgery.....Vola...And replace with talented and beautiful/handsome Indian actors !

                            I think the decision was taken by politicians and not public. Because all stani civilians like Bollywood movies much more than any film industry. so definitely it is recommendation from stani government and its again loss to stan people only because of relying on indian Bollywood industry. Anyway the politicians will do anything for their betterment and pority and inside civilians are the most affected from the failures of government.

                              NDTV will be the worst affected. I wonder how LeT chief will be able to watch stan biased NDTV. For NDTV, this is a big loss of audience from across the border.

                                          Our channels have plenty of warmongers and this will certainly help in cooling down temperature. What Army did was correct but what our channels are doing is not at all sensible act.

Yes im a proud stani but i support only the truth and thats the reason im not in favour of all these rubbish things these ppl are just wasting time above that media is just exaagerating things. War is secondly a foolish thing. why are we hating each other? Yes i know we have reasons for that but will it give us something in return. please think
