KARACHI- Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) today demanded of the government of Pakistan to ban Geo TV just like YouTube had been banned, Samaa reported.
“The satellite news channel has started 'attacking' the sacraments of Islam, thus it must be taken off air,” alleged SIC leader Sahibzada Hamid Raza. Raza said that SIC would move the Supreme Court of Pakistan against this violations. "Geo TV must be tried for blasphemy against the Holy Quran and Islamic traditions," said Hamid Raza. The SIC chief stressed that social reformation was one of media's key responsibilities. "The mass media with their extensive outreach must always be careful about the content they are airing. They must design it in a way that it does not hurt anyone's sentiments especially religious," said he. Raza also announced that SIC would stage a protest sit-in against Geo TV on Sunday. "We will protest until the satellite channel is banned," he concluded.
