SC takes notice of objectionable content on YouTube
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Supreme Court (SC) took notice of objectionable content on YouTube in Pakistan Wednesday and hinted at banning YouTube in the country.
The apex court was hearing a case against suspect Shaukat Ali pertaining to a sectarian crime when the topic came under discussion.
During the proceedings, Justice Qazi Ameen said that the public, through YouTube videos, is being instigated against the country’s institutions. “Such forums are rife with content that incite hate against Pakistan’s institutions,” he added. The court also hinted at banning YouTube in Pakistan.
“We are not against freedom of expression and masses have right to discuss our performance and decisions as we take salaries from public money but constitution also provides us right of personal life but users of social media and YouTube are targeting our families,” Justice Qazi Amin remarked.
Justice Qazi Amin further also remarked that they are showing tolerance but it will run out some day. He also asked Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) if they have checked content on YouTube. He also asked that how many people who were involved in such activities faced action.
“No one can share content against US or Europe on YouTube. There are many countries that have banned the video sharing platform while several countries control social media through local laws,” Justice Mushir Alam remarked.
