The new drama serial on HUM TV, Udaari has been issued a notice from the Pakistan Electronic Media Authority (PEMRA) for airing immoral content in the 5th episode of Udaari. The channel has been asked to submit their explanation on May 25, 2016.
According to details, PEMRA received hundreds of complaints via Twitter regarding the scene aired on May 8th that showed a father asking for carnal relationship with his step daughter in the drama serial, issued a notice claiming that Udaari promotes a negative perspective of our society across the globe.
After successfully creating the critically acclaimed drama “Rehaii” Kashf Foundation and Momina Duraid Productions have joined hands again to create Udaari which focuses on the social and economic marginalization of women in Pakistani society, while also highlighting deeply rooted problems such as child sexual abuse, in order to break the myths and taboos around these issues and provide solutions for their redressal.
The immoral content aired on May 8th is also against the (Amended) Ordinance 2007 section 20(c) and Rule 2009’s clause 15(1) of PEMRA’s Code of Conduct.
