ISLAMABAD: The government has decided not to end a ban on Youtube because of lack of cooperation by the video sharing website.
An inter-ministerial committee on Wednesday produced a report to the National Assembly’s standing committee on Information Technology regarding the Youtube.
Ministries of Law and Information Technology said complete blocking of sacrilegious content on the video sharing website was not possible. They also said the Youtube has no interest to extend cooperation to the government of Pakistan.
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority officials said as many as 682 thousands websites carrying sacrilegious content and 500 anti-state websites were blocked in the country.
PTA said officials from the Youtube were expected to visit Pakistan by the end of current month.
Pakistan blocked Youtube in the aftermath of violent protests against an anti-Islam video posted on the website.
