UK suspends license of Punjabi TV channel for airing content to ‘further Khalistani cause’

The United Kingdom’s regulatory and competition authority for broadcasting, Ofcom, has suspended the license of Khalsa Television Limited after one of its programmes “aired content that included material likely to incite violence and further the Khalistani cause”.

In a statement released on March 31, Ofcom said: “Our investigation found that Prime Time, a 95-minute live discussion programme, included material likely to incite violence. The presenter of the programme made a number of statements throughout the programme which, taken together, promoted violent action, including murder, as an acceptable and necessary form of action to further the Khalistani cause. This was a serious breach of our rules on incitement of crime and disorder.”
