YouTube blocked!

While trying to access a YouTube link to video proof of electoral rigging in Karachi as suggested by Bilal Rashid, I was disappointed to find it altogether dead.

Other fellow bloggers also fear an unfortunate block on YouTube across the Pakistani web-world blamed on a series of varied factors; posting of blasphemous videos; Aitezaz Ahsan’s GEO interview; or Karachi poll rigging videos.

Where are we headed now??

    So much for freedom of expression. When it comes to religious "sensitivities" in Pakistan, all bans, threats, initimidations, etc are considered kosher. I don’t think the ban on Youtube has anything to do with politics (AA’s i/v or poll rigging videos).

    People like Imran Khan do not understand that 60 years of mess in Pakistan can not be fixed over night. We all understand Imran khan wants no flexibility and he does not understand that a stick without flexibility breaks and the one bends comes back to original place. USA gives Pakistan Money ever think why? Because they bend for the interest of USA. Imran Khan thinks as a ruler one can refuse all the diplomatic options and do what ruler believes in . He must understand its easy to sit outside and talk and the pressure Musharraf has faced only he knows better. Musharraf is fellow Pakistani and have some respect for him.Use brain for God sake Learn from USA they bend over to anyone for the interest of USA. Nothing wrong with that one should look after the interest of their country.
