Concern has been show towards the launching of a new US based movie channel in Pakistan as it is expected that they will show uncensored movies. It seems strange coming from a people that thrives on vulgarity, portrayed in the private cable channels showing stage shows that put everyone to shame. It seems eccentric for us not to protest to vulgar Indian shows, such as Big Boss and others while we challenge the US owned channels. There seem to be very few taboo subjects in Pakistan as most channels are also showing real life criminal stories reenacted which cover topics such as rape and murder in our own society. Steps should be taken by PEMRA to control private airing of such vulgar shows but as some private cables are owned by the same rich corrupt mafia nothing can be done. We are just beating this dead horse again and again.
