Why did Pakistan ban this 50-second condom ad?
The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority banned a 50-second condom advertisement. What was the reason? Well, it received several complaints that it was “indecent” as said by its spokesman, Fakhar Mughal. He said,
Airing of such immoral advertisements on Pakistani channels and that too in Ramzan warrants serious action. TV channels have decided to take off air the condom advertisement as it is highly immoral.
A letter sent by PEMRA to the Pakistan Broadcasters Association said the commercial was perceived as “indecent, immoral and in sheer disregard to our socio-cultural and religious values”.
