I had communicated this to Chairman PEMRA, despite that it was re-telecast today. There must be laws against this, and why are they not implemented? This cannot happen anywhere in the world. It hurts deeply. https://t.co/9ekTcPTRkh

Not the First Time
However, this is not the first time when the President has spoken on such sensitive issues. Last month, he expressed his annoyance over the inhumane response of a retired Indian general on the mass rape of women in occupied Kashmir by security forces.
President Arif Alvi said, “Disgraceful. Maj Gen(R) SP Sinha a leader of BJP advocates rape of Kashmiri women on TV”.
Disgraceful. Maj Gen(R) SP Sinha a leader of BJP advocates rape of Kashmiri women on TV. Imagine the fate of women in Indian Occupied Kashmir where such men wield power with total impunity. Indian forces have used rape as a tool according to HRW report https://t.co/tfKDIjWLib https://t.co/7NBCJ9WvB1
