Bring back YouTube

Pakistan Press Foundation

There have been innumerable articles and letters published in the past one year regarding the YouTube ban. Federal Minister for IT Pervez Rasheed apparently recently said that the government in principle has decided to unblock YouTube – to no effect though.

According to the Google transparency report about 56 countries have localised versions of YouTube that allow for tailoring contents to local standards. PTA could do the same. Furthermore, by the grace of proxy websites nowadays YouTube is accessible in any case, making the ban largely meaningless. Companies, students, activists, youth etc have been the unintentional causalities of this ban. The government is humbly requested to lift the ban as soon as they can because YouTube is the only social media website that is extremely educational as well.
