Pakistan bans all cultural exchanges with India
The Pakistan government has launched a national slogan “Say No to India” and decided to ban all cultural exchanges with New Delhi including all kinds of joint ventures in the entertainment industry of the two countries, the media reported on Friday.
The slogan was launched by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on Thursday, Dawn News reported.
“All kinds of Indian content have been stopped and Pemra (Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority) has been directed to step up its vigilance in this regard along with actions against the sale of Indian DTH instruments,” Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said on Thursday.
Talking to media persons at a reception hosted by her, she said the move was in the wake of the Indian government’s decision to scrap Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
