A piece of appalling news for YouTubers of Pakistan is emerging in the news that hints to ban one of the coins’ minting podium. Supreme Court of Pakistan Hints at BANNING YouTube and People are FURIOUS.
Moreover, the Supreme Court implicitly banning YouTube in Pakistan on Wednesday while hearing the case of a man, Shaukat Ali, involved in a denominational crime. It could be a downcasting decision that endangered the present and future of the YouTubers in Pakistan.
The grave reason OF JUDICIAL BENCH behind the PUNCH
Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin and Justice Mushir Alam were on the bench hearing the sectarian case. The court demurred at unfettered content streaming on social media, particularly comments regarding the elusive institutions of the country. For instance, the judiciary, the armed forces, and the government.
Supreme Court of Pakistan hints at banning YouTube in Pakistan over objectionable content published using this platform.
Justice Qazi Amin Sensed the Decision and Vindicated it Verbally
“We are not against freedom of expression and masses have right to discuss our performance and decisions as we take salaries from public money but the constitution also provides us right of personal life but users of social media and YouTube are targeting our families, Masses are being provoked against country’s army, government, and the judiciary.”
“There is a limit to everything and their tolerance is running low over the content being shared. The court asks from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to check and scrutinize content being published. Many countries have banned YouTube due to the same reasons and others control content via local laws that keep everything in check.”
A PTA official Voiced the Court
“The PTA cannot remove objectionable content but can only report it.”
The court issued notices to the attorney-general of Pakistan and the foreign ministry on the matter.
The first half of the preceding decade observed bans on different social media platforms and put slabs on various websites, the three-year ban on YouTube being the most ill-famed for hindering the growth of digital content in the country.
Youth is Vocally Convicting Telco’s Decisions
Recent outlawing of social media apps gives the impression that authorities in Pakistan are intended to ban everything rather than devising a monitoring framework that can help keep things in balance. The topical prohibition of social media apps and PUBG has already created a feud in the country.
Supreme Court of Pakistan Hints at BANNING YouTube and People are FURIOUS
The honourable Supreme Court of Pakistan should consider what Senator Aitezaz Ahsan had said about the YouTube ban in Pakistan in 2012: “Banning YouTube for a few objectionable videos is akin to burning an entire library because of a few books there one doesn’t like”. #YouTubeban

So your only reason to ban something is because people criticize judges?
If judges from didn’t sound like complete buffoons all the time, maybe people would like them a lot more.

The government and these so called ‘institutions’ should ban the Internet altogether instead of banning apps and games one by one. This is getting intolerable and making a mockery of Pakistan – #YouTubeBan
