Earlier this week, it was reported that the Pakistani government had made the move to block Facebook over caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) that were found on the network. We didn’t cover this because we honestly felt this type of behavior is typical by the Pakistani government, and we reckon it happens frequently.
But today, the Pakistani government has blocked yet another incredibly popular website: YouTube. Whilst the reasoning isn’t too clear at this moment in time, the Associated Press is reporting that that block arose as a direct result of “growing sacrilegious contents” [sic]
It is not yet known when/if the two social websites will be unblocked in the near future.
