India's media war against Pakistan

Supposedly Indian soap operas are aimed at corrupting Pakistan's children and women.
Hindi/Urdu only - but the message is that women neglect their housework to watch Indian soaps on the Star Plus channel. {Star Plus is owned by Rupert Murdoch.} Children learn of family problems, including fights with the inlaws, extramarital affairs, and so on at an early and impressionable age. By seeing Hindus so often, the "nafrat" (hatred) that Pakistanis have for Hindus will be reduced. These are matters of grave concern and so the government should take action. Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had after all said that India will wage a media war against Pakistan.
