Information and Broadcasting Ministry tells News Channels to refrain from broadcasting content which may instigate violence
Information and Broadcasting Ministry issued an advisory on December 21, asking TV channels to refrain from broadcasting content which is likely to instigate violence and promotes anti-national attitudes.
Citing its earlier advisory, the I&B Ministry said, it is observed that notwithstanding with the advisory, some TV channels are telecasting content which does not appear to be in the spirit of the Programme Codes.
It asked TV channels not to show the content that contains anything which may affect the integrity of the nation, maligns or slanders any individual in person or certain groups, segments of the social public and moral life of the country.
The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has asked for strict compliance of the advisory. A similar advisory was issued by the Ministry on 11th of this month following the protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
