Youtube certainly a need of people – It shouldn’t be banned totally – There are certain ways to block the specified URLs over all ISPs so that such content can’t be accessed in the country. Senate Committee also took the stance that a piece of wrong material shouldn’t hurt the whole library.
Pakistan’s Senate Functional Committee on Human Rights has passed the resolution to lift the ban on YouTube in the country, and hopefully it will be accessible all over the country within few days. Senate Committee agreed that no other Islamic Country restricted the access to Youtube.
