Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui of the IHC heard the case filed by the Pakistan Broadcasting Association (PBA). During the proceeding, the bench also directed Pemra to fulfill its responsibility regarding monitoring of TV channels' transmission during Ramazan.

The court also directed the authority to take appropriate steps to ensure implementation on decision of allocation of ten per cent of the TV transmissions for public welfare messages.
