PTA trying to save Salman Taseer


Urooj Zia reports on THE NEWS that “The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) issued directives in the last week of December to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), ordering them to block a list of six webpages on the grounds that they were “harmful for the integrity of the country.” Explaining further she mentions following websites that came under hammer:
dictatorshipwatch.com
makepakistanbetter.com
buzzvines.com

Being a reader of these websites, i searched for something that i have missed that is against so called the INTEGRITY of the STATE and i fail to find one. So what this was all about? Urooj explains that “Most of the blocked webpages contained articles which claimed to provide information about Punjab Governor Salman Taseer’s “history”; others had pictures of members of Taseer’s family at lavish parties thrown recently at the Punjab Governor House“.

Well well so PTA is again acting like a personal puppet for political masters this time, just like it did for the dictator earlier. Having not surprised by this, since PTA also comes under GOV. i was just wondering about the people who run PTA. What criteria they set when they decide upon blocking websites. It is sad to note that the political leadership of this country still sleeps in 20th century and they think they can suppress the free voices. Just because a colorful clown has to be protected in PUNJAB the gov. has decided to use the stick. The atrocities against Balauchiz is not harmful for the unity of the state, the killings of innocents at Western border, the injustice to Urdu speaking in KHI in 80s, are all ignored and few websites have suddenly become THREAT FOR THE UNITY OF THE STATE, WHAT THE FUCK

I dont see how these website will fight it out if they decide to challenge the order in court( that is if they do) since Dogar is also present. No Iftikhar for any hope too. Enlightenment and ModeratIon MY ASS . . .
