UAE's National Media Council

Christopher Davidson and Peter Hellyer join in some point, counterpoint.

Davidson's next book on the UAE is Abu Dhabi: Oil and Beyond. That will make three overlapping books. The other two are Dubai: Vulnerability of Success (Columbia University Press, 2008) and The United Arab Emirates: A Study in Survival (Lynne Rienner Press, 2005).

89.1, 101.6, 106.2, 105.4, 95.3 are some of Indian radio channels, quiz compitition and prizes are also part of broadcast
But most of quiz questions are regarding producers and directors of certain films, playback singers, and personal information about bollywood stars. And the prizes are couple invites to disco and dance clubs.....
Is it some sort of a brain drain?
And when the jockeys advertise for such disco and clubs "Ladies enter free before midnight" "Free beaverages for ladies till midnight" does not imply that ladies must go home before midnight... it is simply a date-mate advertisement that is enthusiastically broadcasted

All censorship is on video clips alone, there should also e censorship rules on audio as well...
Hindi songs containing slogans like "Hare Krishna, hare Raam" "Ohm Shanti Ohm" "Raam Raam sate hai" "Jai Raam" etc should be censored before broadcast on UAE Radios
Prolonged scenes of hindu worship, that is beyond the requirement of the story should also be censored or atleast minimised
