People in their ignorance demand PTA and PEMRA to exercise ban on unwanted or inappropriate content but these people don’t know or don’t want to know that this paves way for their unwanted control on the media and freedom of expression. They are testing it on Twitter today. If you think some channel is showing something inappropriate then don’t watch it or do protest against it or file a law suit instead of relying on PEMRA and if you think some website content is in appropriate then don’t visit the link or pay some hacker to hack it instead of relying on PTA. PTA and PEMRA are a tool of state totalitarianism.
Today PTA has blocked twitter in Pakistan and it seems they are planning for something worst. It seems state terrorists are afraid that like in Arab spring people will use social media to support a movement of change which is evident in future.
Recent government decision has an interesting timing. Just as when momentum has started to build-up against the decision of imperialist pet Pakistani government and military to restore NATO supply, they blocked twitter to slow down the momentum. This is how any evil government works after their evil actions. They think by suppressing free speech, they can suppress free thought.
We don’t PTA or PEMRA type institutions in Pakistan.
