Media coverage directions


Our civil and military leadership is successfully waging a decisive war to permanently eliminate the elements of extremism and menace of terrorism from this holy land. It is the need of the hour that not only all state machinery should duly facilitate this fight but also all the civil society and civic professionals should extend their help. Media no doubt plays an important role in forming public opinion and in formulation of appropriate environment for war like ventures. PEMRA has rightly sensitised the media houses to refrain from coverage of proscribed groups. Responsible media coverage is an integral point of National Action Plan that needs to be fully implemented for positive and prompt results. Media houses and journalists should fully comply with these restrictions in the larger national interest and should make it their policy not to give media coverage to any anti-state elements.
