No Indian channels since India using dams as weapons: Pakistan SC

Claiming that India is 'shrinking the flow of water into Pakistan' by damming Indus river's tributaries, which start from the Himalayas and serve 80% of irrigated agricultural land in Pakistan, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar has re-imposed a ban on all Indian TV channels. Indian films and TV shows, which are very popular in Pakistan, were previously banned in 1965 due to Indo-Pakistan war and then re-allowed in 2008.
