Science has made a rapid stride in the 20th century. It has conquered every sphere of life with its blessings as well as its curse. Television is one of the most wonderful inventions of modern science. It is the most up to date means of communication. Television is one of the largest gifts of modern science. The whole world comes to our homes and we can see the live telecast of the news of politics, science, inventions, sports and other important events of the world. It introduces us with the whole world’s civilization, culture, trades and commerce, weather, sports and recreation. Television has widened the horizon of sending news and views to the general masses from one country to another in an attractive and lucid way through satellite TV channels. Union of different cultures thus helps to break down prejudices and broaden our outlook.
It has made the whole world a global village. Television is a media of mass communication and learning. It can educate people on current topics of the world. By viewing the educational programs, we can enrich our knowledge from every nook and corner of the world. Colourful films and live programs are shown in television. The dramas and the variety shows are the first class entertainments. But the satellite channels often telecast indecent programs. It has become a cultural assault in developing countries.
Let us hope our television center will portray the true picture of our country and be the mirror of our national life. A great Islamic thinker Dr. Shamsher Ali says, “Television has many good effects but it has also many bad effects. It fully depends on our adoption and adjustment.” Hence the supremacy of the television cannot be ignored. But we should be careful in using it so that we can uphold our own culture and heritage and imbibe only the good things from other cultures.
