BBC Urdu TV ends broadcasts on AAJ TV

The BBC has ceased broadcasting Urdu-language news bulletins via Pakistan-based AAJ TV.   

The Director of World Service Group Jamie Angus said: “Any interference in our programmes represents a serious breach of trust with our audiences, which the BBC cannot allow. We have experienced interference in our news bulletins since October 2020 and gave AAJ TV ample time for their efforts to facilitate returning the programme to air.  Since this interference continued, despite efforts in good faith on both sides, the BBC had no alternative but to end the partnership with immediate effect.”

BBC regretted any disruption to audiences in Pakistan and reminded them that they can continue to access BBC Urdu’s TV programme Sairbeen on, on the BBC Urdu Facebook page and on the BBC Urdu YouTube channel, Monday to Friday at 1900PKT (1400GMT).
