Ban on YouTube
THIS is apropos of the letter ‘Ban on YouTube’ by Dr Irfan Ahmed Khan (Nov 1). The same thing which was discussed in this letter was in my mind because every website is ultimately dependent on YouTube.
Everyone knows that every second person in Pakistan who uses the Internet watches YouTube through proxy or some softwares despite the ban.
Many students, researchers and other knowledge-seekers have been deprived of knowledge as there are many useful lectures and other informative stuff available on YouTube. I would reckon that the government should take measures by banning only those videos which are blasphemous. Or the government can request the international community and the YouTube authorities to remove that blasphemous material because it is hurting the sentiments of Muslims.
According to YouTube rules and regulations, they can ban any video which could harm the sentiments of the people
