Govt asks PTA to unblock Youtube
The Ministry for Information Technology and Telecom has lifted a ban on Youtube. However, social networking website Facebook will remain blocked in line with the order of Lahore High Court.
The LHC had directed the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to block the site till May 31 over blasphemous content.
Federal Secretary Najeebullah Malik told Geo that PTA was asked to ensure the blockage of links carrying sacrilegious drawings.
He said that the government would implement any order given by the court about Facebook in future too.
PTA chairman Dr Yasin said that Youtube would also be restored immediately after receiving orders from the information ministry.
