“Instead of airing meaningless plays that fuel family and other kinds of deputes in our societyinfo-icon, people should be offered with constructive programs and documentaries that are not in contravention of religious and national values,” he remarked.

Without naming any television network, he said that broadcasters should not air luxurious musical and other types of programs that destroyed the minds of people.
