Pakistani television channels might no longer show “intimate moments between couples” the conservative country’s media regulator has announced.

It complained of too much feminist content and warned that such “bold themes” offend viewers.

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority issued its warning, calling on channels to respect the country’s existing media guidelines and refrain from airing content that does not depict a “picture of true Pakistani society”.

PEMRA said “Indecent scenes/dialogues/extramarital relations, violence, inappropriate dressing, rape scenes, use of drugs and alcohol, intimate moments between couples are being glamourized in utter disregard to Pakistani culture and values.”
