An order by the District Magistrate (Srinagar) asked all private cable operators to stop airing KBC, Gulistan TV, Munsiff TV, JK Channel and Insaaf TV.

The Jammu and Kashmir authorities Thursday asked private cable operators to take five channels off the air as their programmes were creating law and order problem in the Valley, besides “causing mental and physical harm to government functionaries”.

An order by the District Magistrate (Srinagar) asked all private cable operators to stop airing KBC, Gulistan TV, Munsiff TV, JK Channel and Insaaf TV, failing which action will be taken against them under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation Act, 1995).

“Cable operators in Srinagar are transmitting various programmes which have created law and order problem in the Valley and Srinagar, as they transmit programmes which promote hatred, ill-will, disharmony and a feeling of enmity against the sovereignty of the State…
programmes which have the potential of causing mental and physical harm to particular functionaries of the government,” reads the order.
