Pakistan: WAVE Celebrates 30 Years of Interreligious Dialogue

Brussels, July 5, 2007 (SIGNIS) - The WAVE (Workshop Audio Visual Education) Studio Lahore is the only National Catholic Recording studio of the Pakistan Catholic Bishops’ Conference. WAVE has actively been working since 1977 and is thus celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. During these 30 years, the studio always aimed to be a point of reference by its productions and to be at the service of the mission of the Church, especially in the field of interreligious dialogue.

WAVE is directly involved in broadcasting. Ever year the studio plans for the programmes, write the scripts and do the recording at the Centre. They are destined for Radio Veritas Asia Urdu Service, Vatican Radio Urdu Service and the Catholic Broadcasting Association Lahore. The studio produces about thousand programmes for international radio broadcasting.

In 2006 WAVE Studio produced three audiocassettes with duration of 60 minutes each. Last year WAVE also produced one CD containing Christmas carols but these hymns were sung by both Christian and Muslim. With this production the Studio want to foster better relations between the two religions. In that same thought WAVE produced its first DVD Azli Muhabbat (Eternal Love) with a selection of religious and spiritual songs, sung and performed by highly professional and famous Christian and Muslim Singers of Pakistan. These songs were also shown on Cable Television Network in the Christian areas throughout the Country.

Since a few years, the studio faces a new "media" situation. The advent of private television channels in Pakistan has brought a revolution in the prevailing situation of media. Because of this change, the era of competition has started and the Pakistan Television has also started accepting independent productions for their network. Since The Pakistan Television gives a special transmission on the Independence Day of Pakistan there will be an opportunity to bring in national songs from the private producers and even schools. The other element of the liberalisation of the media is that the Cable Television Network has become common and popular in different areas of the country. It has a scope to telecast religious programmes; the owners and operators of Cable Television Network from different areas of the country already contacted WAVE for programmes. The idea is to develop a series of programmes for the Cable Television Network on a weekly basis. This means that WAVE is now preparing 52 programmes on Christianity in the Urdu language.
