Good afternoon ,*|MERGE1|*. It’s Oct 24 and happy holiday!  
I have been waiting for this day for so long not because of the weekend but because it’s a big day today. Yes, it’s Pak VS Ind today at 7pm in Dubai. Today is all about the match and I’m not doing anything else. Waisey who do you think will win? Well, I don’t want to sound like a defeatist lekin according to experts and current positions of both teams, India is likely to beat us. But let’s not be negative and hope for the best. P.S I am all in for a bet. 

And do you know that other than this big match being played, there are also other football matches on, some major ones too. Do check them out!    

It’s going to rain in Islamabad and is sunny elsewhere.

  ‘No hugs, caressing, bed scenes’ in dramas, directs Pemra

Oops! What the…? The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) issued a warning to all satellite channels to refrain from airing caress and hug scenes in Pakistani dramas in a recent notification. 

The notifications reads: 

“All Satellite TV channels are hereby directed to refrain from airing caress/ hug scenes in dramas and properly review the content of the dramas through In-House Monitoring Committee and edit/ amend the same by giving due consideration to above reservations and apprehension of the viewers.”

I wonder what PEMRA thinks about the abusive and slapping scenes on TV? Why are those not given any consideration?
