The Honorable Chief Justice of Pakistan has ordered PTA to block the access of all anti-Islamic blasphemous videos on YouTube, including recently launched anti-Islamic film that has sparked protests across the Muslim world.
Pakistan Telecom Authority was called in by the honorable Chief Justice of Pakistan to brief about the efforts made by the telecom regulator in blocking the Anti Islamic video, available for viewing in Pakistan.
The PTA apprised the Honourable Court about the steps that the Authority has been vigorously monitoring and blocking the Anti-Islamic video placed on worldwide web. The list provided to the Honorable Supreme Court was of 753 Anti Islamic websites (which has now jumped to 934 at the time of this press release) blocked on Internet by PTA out of which over 650 URLs have been banned on YouTube.
