LHC Orders ban of Google, Amazon, Yahoo, MSN, Hotmail, YouTube and Bing

This is interesting to see that Lahore High Court has once again ordered to ban 9 sites including Google, Amazon, Yahoo, MSN, Hotmail, Youtube and Bing in Pakistan. Quite interestingly, 3 of these are popular search engines and usually do not have content of their own. According to a news article, the decision has been taken as a result of a petition submitted in high court stating that these sites are posting sacrilegious material. The sites are accused of publishing blasphemous materials and twisting the facts and figure of Holy Quran.

PTA has already been in trouble with all these bans and blocking going around, some security breaches letting people log on to others’ accounts on facebook and twitter and now this new ban will put them to some real hard work. Court has ordered chariman PTA to appear in the court with all the relevant material no 28th June 2010. This ban has to be implemented immediately.

Please note that some of the social networking sites like Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and Flickr were blocked earlier due to publishing blasphemous material. This blocking was also done by PTA after orders from Lahore High Court.

** Update ** – June 23 – Noon PST
No sites have yet been blocked. Facebook is apparently not among the 9 banned sites.
