ARY News was ordered off the air for 15 days on Monday by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority for “maligning judiciary.”

The channel’s management approached the Sindh High Court on Tuesday to lift the suspension, and a judge allowed cable providers to resume broadcast of the channel that has been vocal in support of a movement led by politician Imran Khan and cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri.
