NEW DELHI: The Qatar-based channel Al Jazeera may have to stop broadcasting in India as the security clearance has been withdrawn by the Home Ministry.
As per the Economic Times, without the clearance, the international English TV news channel has to stop its operations in India.
While no explanation has been provided, media reports suggest that the decision seems to have been taken after the broadcast of a documentary about militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.
As per documents, the security clearance was given by the Home Ministry on December 3, 2010, and withdrawn on May 29, 2018.
Now the fate to the channel depends on the Home Ministry. Al Jazeera English executives declined to comment, as per reports published in ET.
