The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has directed all the Internet service providers of the country to block access to the video-sharing website 'Youtube' for containing blasphemous content.
The order, issued by the director enforcement agency, says that the ratio of "non-Islamic objectionable video" has increased on the website. Following the order, all local ISPs have blocked the website from their servers. "The site would remain blocked till further orders from the PTA," a local ISP worker said.
The complete URL of the objectionable video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3s8jtvvg00 . If you can access it, then please mark it for deletion because of religious hatred.
I can see following error while trying to load it in YouTube:
"ERROR: the requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
The following error was encountered:
