Beritabali.com reports that the Provincial Broadcasting Commission (KPI-Bali) has told all the broadcast facilities in Bali to shut down for 24 hours from sunrise on 05 March 2011 – Bali's official day of silence Nyepi.

The chairman of KPI-Bali, Komang Suarsana, told the press on February 2, 2011, that Bali radio and television stations must shut as a sign of respect for the beliefs of the Balinese people during the 24 hours of absolute silence.

In making his announcement, Suarsana admitted that some parties will see his order as a violation of their human rights. "We have received many protests that the KPI is violating human rights by limiting the ability of people to receive information during the black out period, even for those who do not celebrate the 'Nyepi' holy day. There are those who say we are limiting the movements of those on holiday in Bali during 'Nyepi." This is their right (to have this opinion), but for us it is a commitment," explained Suarsana.

Suarsana added that the 24-hour shut down of broadcasts during Nyepi 2011 must also be followed by TV cable networks serving Bali, although it is unclear how the KPK will be able to enforce satellite transmissions of TV program onto the island.

Suarsana expressed the hope that no broadcast media will violate the day of silence in Bali, as they have in past years.
