Aftab Iqbal’s show taken off air
Lahore: Aftab Iqbal on Friday condemned the Pakistan Media Regularity Authority (PEMRA) for taking his comedy show off air.
He said that he would take legal action against the PEMRA, which he said is the “instrument of a fascist imported government”, a term used by former prime minister Imran Khan.
Taking to Twitter, Aftab Iqbal wrote, “PEMRA is the instrument of a fascist imported govt which can’t tolerate any justifiable criticism. My prog which is recognised as satire has been forced off air. Is this really democracy or worse than Mussolini’s fascist Italy?I intend 2 contest dis illegal action on every forum.”
