STAR changes its programme schedule to counter Pak ban

STAR has decided to drop current affairs programme Aaj Ki Baat on Star Plus from its Pakistan’s feed after Pakistan government banned cable operators from airing Indian cable and satellite channels on ground of ‘anti-Pakistan propaganda’. STAR plans to replace the current affairs show with an entertainment programme. STAR News will not be available in Pakistan.

This will affect the availability of a host of Indian cable and satellite channels including DD News, Star Plus and Zee in Pakistan.

According to industry sources the Information & Broadcasting ministry would first verify the issue of ban with Indian mission in Pakistan. The government is expected to formalise its reaction to the move only after getting a first-hand report from the Indian mission.
