Youtube Ban Lifted in Pakistan After NA Approval
According to Dunya News website and Dawn News, National Assembly of Pakistan has approved the resolution to unban video-sharing website ‘Youtube’ in Pakistan. Youtube is a largest video sharing and content site in the world owned by Google Inc, and it was banned in the country after blasphemous content issue which Youtube Authorities rejected to remove, but few weeks back it was ordered to remove by a US court.
Youtube was banned in Pakistan in Sept 2012, and business community, students, civil society, entrepreneurs, small business owners and hence people from all the walks of life missed the access to the biggest content and video information portal.
According to the Dawn website, MNA Shazia Marri from Pakistan People Party (PPP) submitted the resolution which was unanimously passed by the lower house of parliament. Despite the fact, Shazia Marri belongs to the same party which was ruling during 2012 when Youtube was banned by the government, it’s a reasonable decision from the elected authorities in Pakistan to read and apply the stance of people…
Issue between Youtube Authorities and Pakistan government was on the blasphemous video ‘Innocence of Muslims’ which resulted Youtube bans in various muslim countries, but few months back, according to the news that video was removed by Youtube after court order.
