Zee Punjabi was banned from Punjab’s cable network owned by FastWay Cable. The cable network took the channel off it’s frequency for unknown reasons.
The FastWay Cable network has connections with the ruling Badal family and many are pointing to their influence in the decision to take the channel off air.
Last year, ABP Sanjha was taken off the air and prior to that the popular Day and Night News was removed. Many channels in Punjab have been removed to prevent an independent voice to air. Apparently, FastWay only wants PTC Punjab news to air in Punjab so that a bias side is portrayed.
