Pakistan May Ban Google Over Blasphemous Content

Newly formed government of Pakistan has issued a warning to world’s largest search engine Google to remove blasphemous content from Youtube or else face ban to its Google.com domain all over the country.

This warning was issued by newly elected Minister of Information Technology Anusha Rehman in a cabinet meeting.

In a question asked by local journalist over Youtube ban, the minister replied that it is about time that such content should be removed or else Google will be banned.

  • Google should listen to the new government of Pakistan, if not then Google will face complete ban in the country as there are other search engines online as well.

Anusha added that if Google can’t remove such content then at least it should block it in Pakistan.

On 29th May, 2013 Peshawar High Court of Pakistan had ordered Telecom authorities to block any website that spreads blasphemous content including Google, Twitter and Facebook.

Youtube is already blocked in Pakistan for last 8 months for having blasphemous content.
