All Pakistan ISPs block YoutubeMikey 7 comments
Youtube regulars in Pakistan got a shock when access to the popular video sharing site was blocked. The countries Telco authority has ordered the site be blocked until further notice because of a handful of videos uploaded were deemed offensive to Islam. Pakistan joins a short list of countries that have blocked web sites, which includes Turkey and Thailand.
"They asked us to ban it immediately... and the order says the ban will continue until further notice. Users are quite upset. They're screaming at ISPs which can't do anything."
It seems rather extreme to block the entire site instead of just having the offending videos deleted.
