Islamic channel Peace TV in trouble
Advertisement
#1
Mumbai-based Islamic preacher Zakir Naik's Islamic channel, Peace TV is in big trouble. The Information and Broadcasting Ministry says the channel is not registered with the ministry and so it's illegal.

Cable Television Network Rule 6 (6) also says a channel can't up link from or downlink into India unless it's registered with the I&B Ministry. But despite being not registered and not possessing a valid licence, the 24-hour Peace TV, popular in many Muslim pockets across India, has been operating for the last three years.

Naik, however, maintained that he didn't own Peace TV. "The owner is a Dubai-based company and it applied for registration months ago. But the ministry hasn't issued it a certificate yet," he said, refusing to divulge the identity or the contacts of Peace TV's Dubai-based "owner".

Some cable operators in Mumbai, who earlier showed Peace TV, have stopped beaming it. Hathway, one of the major cable operators which provides services in many parts of the city, has pulled the plug on the channel.
