Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has ordered PTA to block video sharing website Youtube once again after it was briefly restored on Saturday. The decision to block Youtube was made after the clips of the anti-Islam film could still be viewed on the website. According to the PTA all Internet Service Providers (ISPs)had blocked the website.
PTA lifted the ban on Youtube yesterday night.
The video sharing website had been blocked after violent protests over the posting of an anti-Islam film. Prior to this, Youtube has been blocked in Pakistan in 2008 and 2010
