Obscene Websites are blocked by Pakistan Government

Pakistan was the most searchers of obscene websites over the world. The government blocked 13,000 obscene websites today. A top official said that they are taking more steps to prevent the more such kind of activity on Internet.  Parliamentary Secretary for Information Technology Nawab Liaqat Ali Khan said obscene website is a big problem in Pakistan and we are taking hard steps against such sites.

 Khan said Pakistan doesn’t have any mechanism to filter these sites, as their neighbor India and China have automated filter system. He said we are trying to setup a machine in Pakistan too. Khan said most of these sites are being operated out of the country, so it could be hard to block all the sites.  It is a good start for Pakistan earlier they blocked Facebook and YouTube in entirely country.
