In a recent development, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has gone further encroaching upon the the free and open Internet to block five more websites that are offending the breurcats in Islamanad. This letter was issued on the 25th of April and required all the ISP’s to comply within 24 hours.
It seems as if the situation is getting worse with time, we as Pakistanis need to challenge the unreigned supremacy and show the bureaucrats that they cannot take us for a free ride. I would also recommend you to read a very interesting writeup by The Glasshouse: Mush the Nervous
