Pakistan Broadcast Code of Conduct - Restrictions Imposed

Here is a scanned copy of the amendment of the Pakistan broadcasting ordinance introducing severe restrictions in what may be broadcast on electronic media (mainly TV and radio). The standard wording in the introduction of the ordinance looks very odd in context - "The president is pleased to make and promulgate the following Ordinance". Hopefully, Pakistan will increase the freedom for journalists soon.
