Pakistani Christian leader Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti who heads Pakistan Christian Congress PCC has urged the Chairman of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to ban the airing of Baji Irshad; for portraying a tainted image of Christians and their traditions.

 In this regard the Central Secretariat of Pakistan Christian Post released a copy of the official letter Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, had sent to the Chairman PEMRA. It was maintained that the said drama is being aired on Express TV Channel which has apparently hurt the sentiments of Christian community by depicting inaccurate Christian characters in the show, terming it “desecration of the image of Christianity and insult of the Pakistani Christians.”
