Supreme court of Pakistan hinted now at banning youtube in Pakistan. The ban on youtube is because of unregulated content on it including comments regarding the judiciary, govt of Pakistan, and armed forces.
Youtube Ban in Pakistan
Justice Amin said that people of Pakistan can raise their voices against our decisions as we are paid from the money of the people. The constitution also gave us the right to privacy he added.
Justice Mushir said that youtube is banned in many countries. And no person can post any content against the United States and the European Union. If anyone posts any content then they are prosecuted for their crime.
People of Pakistan are encouraged for the content against armed forces, judiciary, and govt. PTA and FIA are strictly looking over electronic crime in Pakistan through the electronic crime act passed in 2016. A few days ago a video got viral on social media platforms in which a man threatened a senior judge in a video which was a very shameful act by the person.
People of Pakistan are being angered by the decision of the Supreme court on the Ban of Youtube. People say that banning youtube in previous years was a wrong step as many influencers and content writers were lost in that period.
Minister of Information and technology Fawad Chaudhary also added his statement at banning youtube in Pakistan on Twitter.
Courts and PTA must stay away from moral policing and Ban Approach,such bans on internet based Apps ll destroy Pak tech industry and development of technology ll be permanently hampered,we are still not out of woods b/o judges illadvised interferece in economic matters
