Last month Pakistan government banned access to the one of the largest social network sites like YouTube and Facebook because of publishing page “Draw Muhammad Competition”.  Ban was imposed by Pakistan Telecom Authority on the orders of Pakistan high court. Facebook ban was lifted after two weeks.

Now once again, Pakistan Court orders PTA to block access on the nine websites as they are presenting and showing blasphemous material against the Muslim values and norms. One of the retired civil servant Mr. siddique  had put it petition to the court in order to ban the web sites like Yahoo, Google, YouTube and Facebook as they are exposing Islamic material that’s totally wrong and against the Islamic values.  On the petition Mr. Mazhar Iqbal ordered to block the access of websites to PTA. PTA has not blocked the access of mentioned websites as they have not get any orders from communication ministry in sequence of banning the websites, according to the PTA Officials. On the other hand, PTA earlier bans the websites YouTube and Facebook without waiting the ministry orders.

Banning YouTube, Facebook, google, Msn and other remaining sites may create issues for the internet users. It will affect their business, users using search engine for studying and education, email and lots of other productive purposes.  According to the ISP official, court has nothing to do with the technical issues, let PTA to resolve such technical  problems and issues.

    Youtube has removed contents related to Draw Muhammad Day after discussion with PTA, so if there is some other material, definitely they’ll remove that too but it’s needed that they should be notified instead of blocking, as far as Yahoo, Goodle, Bing and other search engines are concerned, it seems to be ridiculous to block these websites, as blocking is not the solution, First of all, these search engines don’t contain the contents itself, so blocking of these search engines has noting to do with actual websites with blaspheme contents.

    It’s only a thing like close your eyes on watching a cat.
