Pakistan pulls 'immoral' condom commercial off air

Published: 07.24.13, 14:55 / Israel News

Pakistan has pulled a condom commercial off the air following more than 1,000 complaints that its broadcast was immoral during the fasting month of Ramadan. The commercial features a couple wondering how their neighbor managed to land a glamorous wife, and shows the beaming husband reveal his secret –  a packet of "Josh" condoms. "Josh" translates to "excitement" in Urdu.


"People who complained didn't want such an immoral advertisement on television during the holy month," said Fakharuddin Mughar, a spokesman for the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority. The advertisement was voluntarily pulled by the Pakistan Broadcasting Association, he added. (Reuters)
