Just in – Youtube seems to have been blocked in Pakistan
There are two theories one is that an Anti Islamic movie was being blocked while another theory is that a few videos did surface which showed poll rigging in Karachi
Sources say that this video could very well be the objectionable video that is being blocked in Pakistan – I have not seen the video as I cant access it, but if it has objectionable blasphemous links then I prefer not to upload it directly – here is the text link, venture at your own risk
Update: Download the [download#4]
While below is the email received from MultiNet via the Proud-Pakistani Mailing List where they place the onus on the People of Pakistan to put pressure on Youtube for unblocking the website.
Dear Valued Customer:
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (www.pta.gov.pk) has directed all ISPs of the country to block access to www.youtube.com web site for containing blasphemous web content/movies.
The site would remain blocked till further orders from PTA. Meanwhile, Internet users can write to youtube.com to remove the objectionable web content/movies because this removal would enable the authorities to order un-blocking of this web site.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience.
