    ISLAMABAD: A committee formed by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) has suspended the licences of three television channels owned by the Geo TV network.

    The committee has also ordered that Geo TV offices be sealed.

    However, a final decision on the revocation of the licences will be announced following the meeting on May 28, which will also be attended by government representatives.

    The committee, which includes members Syed Ismail Shah, Pervez Rathore and Israr Abbasi, was tasked to review the Ministry of Defence's application filed against Geo TV network for leveling allegations against an intelligence agency of Pakistan.

    Speaking to reporters in Islamabad, members of the committee announced that they have decided to suspend the licences of the three channels — Geo News, Geo Entertainment and Geo Tez — with immediate effect.

    "All members (present) today unanimously decided that the licence for Geo News be cancelled. However, due to a legal formality that could not be completed, we have sent our recommendations to the Council of Complaints, advising that they respond before May 28, the date for our next meeting," said Mian Shamsur Rehman, a member of the committee.

    Pemra member Israr Abbasi said that one-third members were present during the meeting today, whereas government member did not attend the meeting.

    The suspension is to stay in effect until May 28, when another session of the committee will be called to decide on the final decision regarding cancellation of the licences.

    "On May 28 during our next meeting, we will give a final decision on (cancelling licences of) Geo News, Geo Tez and Geo Entertainment," said Shamsur Rehman.:wave:

    Majority of Pakistanis is against it mate, not just me,
    The channel is known for anti-Pakistan propaganda and exposed to be quoting full articles from Times of India and other Indian sources.

    So yes I am happy about it.

    I don't know if you have been following the latest developments from past dew days. In a popular talk.show Jago Pakistan the controvertial talk show.host and.anchor Shaisra Lodhi caused uproar by insulting Islam. Geo team has been charged under blasphemy law and final verdict has yet to.come.

    Also MoD had filed a case against Hamid Mir and Geo for spreading lies against ISI.

    Weird. Looks like your ISI Pakistan is different from a democratic Pakistan.

    Should Geo be taken off-air?


    The announcement that a Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) committee had suspended the licences of three television channels owned by the Geo TV network drew a strong reaction on local media and online.

    From terming the media a "Pharaoh" acting out of line, to outright condemnation of the suspension of Geo News, Geo Tez and Geo Entertainment, politicians, senior journalists and civil society members spoke out on the decision.

    Speaking on a private TV channel, former information minister Javed Jabbar questioned whether PEMRA's move to revoke Geo's licenses was legal, given that due process was not followed.

    Senior journalist and Executive Editor, The Express Tribune Muhammad Ziauddin termed the suspension questionable and raised questions about PEMRA's role as a regulatory body.

    Speaking on DawnNews, senior journalist Nasim Zehra also criticized the PEMRA committee's decision, blaming journalists, media owners and the regulatory body for the current crisis.

    Also speaking on Dawn News, senior journalist Mazhar Abbas said it was apparent no one seemed to care about the fear and insecurity this decision will spread among media workers. He said the decision was taken wrongfully, ignoring the technicalities needed for suspension of Pakistan's largest news channel.

    Speaking to a TV channel, PTI spokesperson Shireen Mazari said no one wanted to see Geo News off air, but if the decision for suspension was taken lawfully, it should be upheld.

    Former Ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani condemned the closure of Geo

    My bad.

    Totally forgot about the RAW-CIA-Mossad conspiracy!

    Those tweets that are posted are all RAW agents, the condemnation of Geo closure by former Pak ambassador is a conspiracy by Hindu bootlickers to undermine ISI! In fact Twitter has conspired with CIA-RAW to only show tweets critical of this Geo shutdown!

    Good to see that democracy and freedom of speech is still alive in Pakistan.:namaste:
