Govt. mulls action against unlicensed broadcast of Peace TV, Geo TV, Q TV and others

With the controversy around televangelist Zakir Naik’s channel-Peace TV gaining momentum; in its latest clean up act against unlicensed channels, the government has identified over two dozen channels as unfit for telecast in India. These channels include NTV Bangladesh, TV Maldives,  PTV, PTV Home, PTV World, Geo TV, Dawn, Express, Waqat, Q TV, Madni TV, Noor TV, Hadi TV and  Aaj TV among others.

The Centre has asked the states to ensure that cable operators do not broadcast the TV channels that are not permitted to downlink in India, like Zakir Naik’s ‘Peace TV’.


The advisory from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry to the states follows the government’s announcement that an investigation is being carried out into all matters concerning ‘Peace TV’.
In a recent move the government of Bangladesh banned the broadcast of Peace TV in the country and now the Indian government is mulling strict action too.
