Srinagar, Apr.24 (ANI): Cable operators in the Kashmir Valley said on Thursday that four Pakistan television channels have been pulled off the air in the region.
According to the cable operators, they were told that since they did not have the necessary government clearance, they could not broadcast the channels.
The four channels taken off the air are PTV, ARY, Aaj and Geo TV.
More than 50 channels, including three Islamic ones, are usually available, showing news, films and other entertainment in Hindi and English.
Some channels also broadcast in the Kashmiri language.
Kashmiri separatist leaders have allegedly said that the government ban is nothing short of cultural aggression from New Delhi. (ANI)
