Churails Gets Unbanned After Two Day Ban


Pakistani web-series Churails is back for viewership again two days after it was allegedly banned by Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) for airing inappropriate content.

The web-series was pulled down for Pakistani viewership by Zee5 which is an Indian digital streaming website.

The show starring Pakistani female leads including Sarwat Gilani, Yasra Rizvi, Nimra Bucha, and Meharbano received a lot of praise for highlighting the plight of Pakistani women.

However, there was an outrage on Twitter when a clip from the show made rounds on social media and people claimed that the content is too “vulgar” for Pakistani audience.

The show’s director Asim Abbasi said in a tweet that the Churails ban was taken into effect after pressure from the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA).

However, there was no response from PEMRA, PTA, or Zee5 about the reasons behind this decision.

There were also many speculations that it was all a publicity stunt but then there was an official statement released by Zee5 explaining that they had taken down the show as per directives which they received after the outrage on Twitter.

After a chaotic two days, the web-series is back on and the viewership has gone up courtesy of all the buzz on social media and the support from the audience.
