Muzaffarabad: Azad Kashmir’s regional television station, which was destroyed by a massive earthquake last year, will return to the airwaves on Thursday, officials said. The Azad Jammu Kashmir channel is being relaunched from a makeshift tin shelter built on the ruins of its former office in the regional capital Muzaffarabad, general manager Ijaz Ahmed Niazi told AFP on Wednesday. The station will initially broadcast programmes for two hours a day “to boost the morale of quake affectees and provide information about rebuilding process,” Niazi said. Azad Kashmir’s prime minister Sardar Atiq Ahmad Khan will inaugurate the transmission, he said.
