Islamabad: 

The Pakistan Supreme Court today barred private channels from airing Indian films and television shows, amid tensions between the two countries following the Pulwama terror attack.

A three-member bench of the court, headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmad, heard the case related to the telecast of Indian content on Pakistani channels.

"The apex court has barred private channels from airing Indian material," state-run Radio Pakistan reported.

The hearing of the case has been adjourned for an indefinite period.

The move came a week after Pakistan's Information and Broadcasting Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Pakistan film exhibitors association will be boycotting Indian films following Indian air strikes on a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Pakistan's Balakot last month.

Mr Hussain also said that he has instructed the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to crack down on "made-in-India advertisements".

The court had instated a ban on Indian content in October, 2018.
