ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) on Sunday ordered the restoration of all news channels.

PEMRA on Saturday had ordered to take all news channels off air. 

Prior to this decision, the regulatory body had directed news channels to ensure the security of their staff while the tense situation across the country persisted. 

PEMRA had earlier barred media from live coverage of the Islamabad Operation under Media Code of Conduct 2015.

In a press release, the Pakistan Broadcasters Association (PBA) had strongly condemned the unilateral closure of news channels by the government. 

The All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) also expressed concern over the sudden closure of television channels and their transmission.
