Govt should urge Pakistan to lift ban on Indian TV channels: IBF

The Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) has made a request to the Foreign Secretary, Government of India, to persuade the Government of Pakistan to lift the ban imposed on Indian TV Channels in the aftermath of the Kargil operations.

IBF has pointed out that the goodwill that will be generated in the course of the cricket series and the live telecast of the matches that will reach millions of viewers in India are enough reasons for the Indian government to take up the issue of ban on Indian TV channels with the Pakistani authorities.

An IBF release issued today stated, “The Pakistani Minister for Information and Broadcasting had earlier expressed his view that his Government would not lift the ban. However, in a recent statement, as carried by some newspapers today, President Musharaff has proposed close cultural linkages between the two countries and this may be utilized to restart the availability of rich and varied programmes from Indian TV channels to Pakistani masses, which in turn would contribute greatly to further promoting the understanding and commitment for peaceful relations between the two countries.”
