Senate Committee wants to Lift Ban on YouTube
Good News ahead for YouTube lovers in Pakistan. As we all know that YouTube is banned in Pakistan by the orders of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf on September 2012 due to some anti Islam Videos on YouTube. Senate’s Functional Committee on Human Rights observed today that the ban on YouTube has not served is not the solution of the problem and that the blasphemous video, Innocence of Muslim is still available on the video sharing website and it was also accessible through number of proxy and VPN services, either they are free or paid. A senate body has recommended lifting ban on top video sharing website YouTube.
The Committee was head by Senator Afrasaib Khattak of Awami National Party (ANP) who accepted a resolution which was submitted by the Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed in favor of lifting unblocking YouTube as over 20 months ban since September 2012, but this ban on YouTube has become a barrier among the people from getting knowledgeable material from YouTube. Many people who uses YouTube for the purpose of knowledge, so they are unable to use it due to this ban, he also suggests that ban is not the solution of the problem, solution is to make some strong security arrangements that anti Islam videos won’t show in Pakistan.
In the session it was also recalled that Chairman Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had already advocated the point that Pakistan was the only country where YouTube is ban. Other Muslim countries including Saudi Arabia, UAE and some other big Islamic countries are still running this website as it was earlier. So its time for us to lift this ban, because this website is very useful especially for students who use this website for to have knowledge purpose.
