Sunday seen an unsurprising act from Pakistan, the country banned the micro-blogging site which was later restored by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA). The access was blocked over an ongoing “competition” of Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) caricatures, reports The Express Tribune.
PTA Chairman Dr Mohammad Yaseen said the regulator was asked by the Ministry of Information and Technology to block the website in the country. “We just passed on the directives to the Internet Service Providers (ISPs),” he told The Express Tribune. “I can’t say for how long the website will remain blocked.”
