Last week the Pakistan government had banned YouTube because of its "growing sacrilegious content". However, according to new reports from Associated Press, the government has now decided to lift the ban on YouTube, albeit, partially.
The Pakistan government will continue to block videos which are offensive to Muslims, while allow other YouTube video to continue being viewed.
According to AP, the government seemed to move in that direction Wednesday by deciding it would restore access to YouTube but continue to block videos "displaying profane or sacrilegious material," said Najibullah Malik, the secretary at Pakistan’s information technology ministry.
However, there was no news on when the Government would lift the ban on Facebook, which was the root cause of the ban due to controversial caricatures of Prophet Mohammad. There were also reports that Twitter was banned in Pakistan.
Pakistan’s neighbor India also reportedly banned the "Everybody draw Mohammed Day" Facebook page. There were reports that the ban on Facebook and maybe Twitter may remain in effect till May 31st, however, there are no concrete reports to prove that claim yet.
Are you able to access YouTube or Twitter is Pakistan now, or is it still blocked?
