According to the regulatory body, the decision was taken after it received complaints from viewers through Pakistan Citizens Portal and social media accounts that the dramas were propagating content that was against the social and religious values of the society.
The PEMRA has directed all TV channels, media houses and production houses to review the content of dramas.
