The advisory, which is signed by Vikram Sahay, joint secretary in the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, has warned cable TV operators in Jammu and Kashmir that if they break the rules they could face disciplinary action including withdrawal of license/permission and confiscation of equipment.

Sahay, who is the joint secretary in the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, told the operators that they are violating the law by airing channels from ‘Muslims’ countries, especially Iran, Turkey and Malaysia.

Sahay was told that while no channel from Malaysia was being aired in the Valley,  Sehar TV, a religious channel of Iran, was being aired as it is watched by the Shia community.

The operators also told the officer that Al-Arabiya channel-run by Saudi Arabia-was also being aired. The official said that both, Al-Arabiya and Sehar TV shouldn’t be aired in the region.
