Islamabad (18th Oct, 2019): Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has rejected media reports that Maulana Fazlur Rahman’s censorship.
“All channels keep showing his face,” she said while talking to the media. “How much coverage does he want?”
The JUI-F chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman can be seen sitting on talk shows every day, she said. His complaint that he isn’t getting coverage makes no sense in real, Dr Firdous Awan added.
The electronic media should play an vital role in this rather than showing people as ‘heroes’ or ‘zeroes’.
The controversy started after one of the major news channel Geo News, took off-air a press conference of JUI-F leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman with its anchor explaining it was because the Pakistan Electronic Media Authority has not allowed to broadcast live telecast of the event.
