FTV banned

Anita Joshua

NEW DELHI: The Information and Broadcasting Ministry on Thursday decided to ban FTV for two months, beginning April 1. This is the second channel to be banned this year. AXN was banned but it came back on air after an apology for beaming objectionable content.

In the case of FTV, the action has been taken for airing programmes such as Midnight Hot, featuring "skimpily dressed and semi-naked models."

Such programmes, according to the Ministry, are against good taste and decency, denigrate women and could adversely affect public morality. The ban has been ordered as per Section 20(2) of the Cable Television Networks Regulation Act, 1995.

The action follows complaints to the Ministry by television viewers.
