Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) in a statement has said that the quality of Pakistani dramas is 'deteriorating' every day.
In a statement released on Monday, Pemra said, "Themes of drama serials/ plots are quite bold and not reflective of majority of Pakistani society."
It added, "Plots/ themes of Pakistani dramas are influenced by alien cultures/ societies, portraying fictional society."
The statement further said, "Besides unnecessary glamour, bold scenes are being shown in the dramas ignoring religious, social, cultural and ethical values of the country."
The regulatory authority further said that it has been receiving numerous complaints from general public.
The statement added, "Viewers are of the opinion that dramas are not depicting the true picture of Pakistani society. Indecent scenes//dialogues/extramarital relations, violence and exploitation are being glamourized ignoring ethical bindings of Pakistani society as well as Pemra laws."
Pemra called on all channels to "endure their corporate social responsibility and produce such content which is strictly in line with the Pakistani culture, standards of decency and Pemra laws."
