Pakistan govt cracks down on media glorification of terrorists

With some right wing media houses turning a deaf ear to its ‘request’ to stop giving coverage to banned outfits and their leaders, the Pakistan government has been forced to issue an ordinance banning glorification of terrorists in any fora including the media.

The government is also working on introducing a legislation in the National Assembly for local media regarding any kind of ‘glorification’ of the terrorists, banned militants, publication or broadcast of the statements of the banned organisations or their leaders.

Some right wing media houses are giving a deaf ear to the government’s ‘request’ to stop giving coverage to banned outfits and their leaders. The Nawaz Sharif government had asked media houses not to give coverage to militants and the banned organisations after the Peshawar terror attack by the Taliban that killed 150 people mostly children.
