YouTube ban not lifted

By Abrar Hamza

KARACHI: The reports of YouTube restoration in Pakistan happened to be a rumor, as it was not restored, it has been learnt on Tuesday.

Yesterday a section of media announced lifting ban on Youtube in the country, which spurred a glint of happiness amongst internet users, but when thousands of them tried to open the site it was found blocked. Interestingly, the ban on YouTube only works for table computers or laptops as the service of YouTube on mobile phones and I-pads are open.

Some industry experts told YouTube blocking system might have gone dysfunctional for a while but it did not mean the site has been restored. Moreover the concerned authorities did not announce officially the unblocking of the site.

However industry sources said the ban would be lifted after the taking of oath by the new government of Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) as they wanted to take the credit of restoration of this service.

Though it will be criticised from the right wing politicians but PML-N wants to win the courtesy of youth keeping in view Pakistan Tehreek Insaf’s popularity in social media, reasoned the source.

Many petitions are already being heard at different courts of the country against the ban on Youtube. Recently Lahore High Court summoned the Google representative to present their stance on the blasphemous content on the site before the Court. It has been reported the Google’s representative would appear before the Court soon.

On the other hand YouTube service is available through proxy sites and other software and it has been observed the consequences of this ban are not useful for the youth of Pakistan because majority of the users were unaware about proxy sites before the ban on YouTube but now this ban has explored the new ways to unblock the restricted and unethical material sites also.
