Islamabad, Nov 30:  The National Assembly Standing Committee for Information and Broadcasting  has advised that it should be compulsory for all female news anchors to carry a dupatta when on air.


During a session in Islamabad, the committee also expressed its concern over the exposure being given to Indian models in Pakistani advertisements.

On the suggestion of the committee to ban commercials of foreign actors in the country, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira said that the issue was in the court and it would be better to wait for the decision.  

However, he agreed with the members of the committee that the local culture should be promoted by the media as the country was rich in heritage.
