PEMRA bans BOL TV’s TickTock Show over ‘immoral’, ‘indecent’ content

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority has banned BOL TV’s programme TickTock Show for airing “immoral, indecent and Indian-inspired” content.

According to a press release issued by the watchdog, action was taken after it received multiple complaints against the show on the Pakistan Citizens Portal and PEMRA’s social media accounts.

The show features a man watching TikTok videos and commenting on them.

The channel had been issued a warning earlier to review the content of the show and tailor it to meet “Pakistani values”. When the changes were not made, PEMRA banned it under Section 27 of the PEMRA Ordinance 2002.
