Blocking the future

Blocking the future

I find the sporadic, random disruptions to social media access in Pakistan to be deeply troubling. The future of the IT industry in our country is seemingly being clouded by the threat of political interference. This not only hinders free expression but also presents a significant obstacle for young people who aspire to contribute to the booming field of internet technology. The IT industry can drive economic growth, innovation, and global connectivity. However, arbitrary bans, disruptions, and interference only serve to impede its progress and discourage investment. It is my suggestion that policymakers reconsider their approach and prioritize the long-term development of Pakistan’s IT industry.
