YouTube blocked in Pakistan over Anti Islam Video

Amid widespread protests across the country over the blasphemous and anti Islam video being aired by YouTube, Pakistan has blocked the video sharing site YouTube completely on Monday after the authorities realized that the government has not installed a filtration system and does not have a treaty with Google that would block objectionable videos.

In the meanwhile two protesters died in Pakistan on Monday as the backlash against the film spread across the region and angry demonstrators clashed with police, hurling stones and shouting: “Death to America.”


While countries like India and Indonesia have successfully got such blasphemous sites blocked through the intervention of the Google/YouTube administration, Pakistan was helpless because of the incompetence of the IT authorities as it has neither any such treaty with Google nor has the filtration system installed to block the blasphemous and pornographic sites.
