PTA blocks 934 links of movie
18 September, 2012
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), on Monday, urged the nation to inform the authority if there were any viewable links of anti-Islamic websites.
A statement by PTA stated, "By Monday evening, 934 websites carrying such material have been blocked on Internet by PTA out of which over 650 URLs have been banned on YouTube."
It further said, "Through this release, it is again requested to bring into PTA's notice if any anti-Islamic video is available for viewing through any ISP or mobile operator in Pakistan at any time on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org and number 080055055.
The PTA would take prompt action." The statement also referred to the directions by the Supreme Court for blocking access to all anti-Islamic and blasphemous videos on YouTube, including recently launched anti-Islamic film that has sparked protests across the Muslim world.
The chief justice had directed PTA to take down all sacrilegious material that disrespects Islam or Prophet (PBUH) in any way, and had directed the PTA director general to submit a report.
