ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Information Technology (IT) has blocked video sharing website Youtube after receiving orders from Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf.

 

Prime Minister Ashraf had directed the IT Ministry to block Youtube over the video sharing websites failure to remove the anti-Islam film. The block will remain in place until the anti-Islam film is removed.

 

“Blasphemous content will not be tolerated at any cost,” PM Ashraf said.

 

Earlier the Supreme Court had ordered the PTA to block links to all blasphemous content including those on Youtube to the anti-Islam film.

 

In response the PTA said it had directed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) throughout the country to block links of the anti-Islam film.

 

According to a statement issued by the PTA, 750-800 links of the anti-Islam film had already been blocked after several complaints were received.
