What happened:

A Member of the National Assembly expressed grave concerns about caller tune which spread the awareness message about breast cancer. Details indicate that during a recent meeting of the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Information Technology and Telecommunication, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) MNA Syed Mehmood Shah brought up ‘this issue.’


The MNA claimed that during the meeting, one could hear the caller tune concerning women that contained ‘obscene language,’ “Set a caller tune on a subject for just one day if you want to raise awareness of it,” he said. The Standing Committee laughed in response to the MNA’s ‘pointless objection.’
