Sources said those working against the policy could face legal action. After that, the YouTube channels of Muhammad Yusuf, Faisal Iqbal, Basit Ali and Atiqul Zaman have become silent. Sources said that at a time when diplomatic and cricket relations between Pakistan and India are strained.
Prior permission will also be required to conduct interviews as per the policy. Saqlain Mushtaq’s statement came out on YouTube channel four days ago.
