Freedom of expression?


I was recently watching ‘Sard Aag’ on Rung TV which is just another low quality wanabee production. What caught my interest was a fight scene between two young males of the south Asian descent settled in the UK in which one of the actors angrily said the F word (silent in the drama) and a common ‘Gaali’ on the streets of Karachi involving the holy figure of Mother (also silent in the drama). If this was not enough, then just after one of the friends shot another friend dead, this third friend was showed ‘Peeing’ in his pants. I found the whole situation rather disgusting to be watched on a Family Channel. PEMRA which is responsible for regulating Pakistani electronic media is quick to take steps against Ayesha Alam when she talks about a social problem – alcoholism – on her radio show The Coffee Party just because it involved the word ‘Alcohol’. I am sure this sickening act of peeing on a family channel will get away and the TV channel nor the production team will be penalized for this act, and even if they do I doubt if they will ever be able to pay the monetary penalty as the some of the new actors in the drama were not even paid to work.

    Granted that its a shitty channel, granted that that wasn’t any ‘renowned producer’, Also the fact that they didn’t pay any of the actors, its worthwhile noting that this isn’t a quality channel to watch and certainly not worthy to be watched with family. But on a lighter note, get over it man, it was just pee. Have you forgotten the time when you were a kid and used to poo poo and pee pee all over? Don’t be so socked by it, its a natural human function, everyone does it. Just as long as no skin showing is involved its ok.
