WATCH: BOL under fire for deliberately promoting sectarianism for ratings

#BolPromotingSectarianism is trending in Pakistan.


The private TV channel named ‘BOL’ has been accused of promoting sectarianism on national television during its Ramadan transmission show.

During the transmission, the Sunni scholars forced a Shia cleric Allama Zameer Akhter Zaqvi to clarify his stance on the status of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) companions in Shia sect.

The Shia scholar left the show after a heated discussion.

Social media users are requesting the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulation Authority (PEMRA) to take strict action against the channel. BOL is under fire for spreading hate during the Holy month of Ramadan and deliberately choosing topics that instigate a sectarian debate for the sake of ratings.

Public Response

A social media user tweeted: “It was a deliberate attack; they all gang up against one. That’s harassment, terrorism and one of them openly gave life threats to the Shia scholar.”

Another user said, “There is no difference between Shia and Sunni. We all are Muslims. However, this news channel is sparking discrimination between the two sects.”

The hosts of the show are also facing severe criticism for promoting sectarianism and allowing such discussions only for the sake of publicity.

  • Bol should be shut down

    half of the news are fake on their channel

    this secetarisam can’t be tolerated in any society

  • All sunnies and all Shias respect each other , there is enemies of Muslims wanted to divide Muslims in the sects /group/firqaa waruyat which is not acceptable in Islam. Pamra needs to open eyes and stop anyone who is promote division in the society on the national TV channels or anywhere else in any level .

  • Why blame media? they are only exposing the hatred that the sects have for each other.


    Media is just showing it to the world. there is one Islam, why can’t they sit and solve it? if the Maulana’s can’t do it, what will the lesser educated common man follow?

  • کسی زمانے میں اس طرح کے مباحث اور مناظرے ہوا کرتے تھے جن کی بنیاد خالص علمی ہوا کرتی تھی۔ اور بہت کچھ سیکھنے کو ملتا تھا۔ حالات بدل گئے۔  لوگ اپنے خیالات میں متشدد ہو گئے اور برداشت کا مادہ ختم ہوگیا۔ یہی وجہ ہے کہ ایسے مباحث نفرت انگیز باتوں کر کتم ہو جاتے ہیں۔

  • Every one in the universe is responsible for his beliefs and thoughts and will be answerable to Almighty Allah on the day of Judgement. There are too many people who worship gods but Allah has not stopped their any facility because will be answerable on the day of judgement. These Moulanas should not behave like this and should take care of themselves.

  • بول ٹی وی نے پہلے عامر لیاقت کو ڈاکٹر ذاکر نائیک کیلئے استعمال کیا اور اب اس ہیرہ منڈی والی کرن ناز کو استعمال کررہی ہے اور یہ لوگ پیسوں کی خاطر بہت کچھ کرتے ہے لہزا عوام ہوش کے ناخون لے اور اس کے باتوں ہر توجہ نا دیں.  ملک پہلے کورونا وائرس کی ٹینشن ہے اور پھر ففرقہ واریتیں پڑھنے کی ضرورت نہیں .  اسلام میں ہر مزہب کی اجازت ہے چاہیے وہ ہیندو کیوں نا ہو۔اور پاکستان میں ہر اقلیت کو بلکہ ہر ای کو اپنی آزادی اور قانونی حیثیت حاصل ہے پیمرہ کو اس کے خلاف ایکشن لینا چاہیے۔
