Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that New Delhi, India’s capital, has become the ‘rape capital’ of the world in his exclusive interview, with renowned journalist Dr. Moeed Pirzada on Channel 92 news, as he touched upon a range of topics of concern for the Pakistani society.

The PM discussed the media and its influence when the topic was brought up, maintaining that Indian media and it’s film industry Bollywood has seen a surge in the creation and promotion of indecent and obscene content that has corrupted the society’s ethical and moral values, and such “fahaash” (vulgar) content has led to the spread of indecency in our communities.

PM Imran further stated how one of the reasons for airing Ertugral on PTV was to counter the spread of vulgarity from such “fahaash” content, and to show the people how we films and T.V shows could remain within the boundaries of Islamic without compromising on entertainment value for viewers.
