“Naked and Afraid”
Discovery Channel started a new reality show “Naked and Afraid” which got banned by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) for its ‘highly obscene and vulgar content.’
PEMRA said that the authority had to take an action and banned the show after receiving several complaints from the public. And finally, a notice has been issued to the One World Alliance Pvt. Ltd. the distribution rights and marketing of the channel in Pakistan.
