An Islamic television station in Senegal says it has filed a formal complaint against unknown saboteur “X” for taking over the network and airing pornography instead of its regularly scheduled religious programming.
Viewers tuning into Touba TV on Monday afternoon got a shock when hardcore pornography was aired from 13:10 to 13:30.
Touba TV on Wednesday called the broadcasting blunder a “criminal act” and said the formal complaint will make it possible to identify the “authors who have an unknown agenda.”
It blamed an unidentified saboteur for the “satanic trick” that led to a hardcore porn film being shown on air.
“As a religious channel, the management of Touba TV and all our audience members are outraged and unreservedly condemn this criminal act which seems to be sabotage and a satanic trick designed to undermine a channel which is known to stand for Islamic values and teachings,” Touba TV management said in a statement.
The privately run station usually broadcasts religious programs advocating Islamic values and teachings, including sermons and prayers.
