Various official media units of the Government of India, primarily Doordarshan, shell out a good amount of money every month on making special programs and documentaries showcasing the democracy and secularism of India but at the end of the day, it is the Pakistani viewpoint that considerably prevails. With an electronic boom in the country and many new channels coming up every year, the viewer now has a choice to make. However, in Jammu and Kashmir the Pakistan Television (PTV) still maintains a large viewership in the rural countryside.
The official electronic media of India, Doordarshan, has poor quality reception with no reach at all in various. In urban areas, however, Doordarshan is fighting a different kind of war. Its programmes are not reaching the majority of people who are being fed with the India-India propaganda launched by Pakistan through its electronic media. One of the reasons for Doordarshan
`s inability to counter this war is violation of rules by private cable TV operators who continue to beam PTV and another Pakistani channel GEO TV channel blacking out Doordarshan.
