For last week my frens in Pak were not able to access their blogs. Only today I came to know that it was not due to any technical server snag but due to official ban imposed by Govt of Pakistan on entire blogs hosted by blogspot.
Reason : some blogs on blogspot carried the controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. Read the related news story here.
I see no problem in banning those specific blogs that hurt religious sentiments but to impose a blanket ban on all blogs is too harsh censorship which will mostly affect innocent Pak bloggers.
I would like to request bloggers every where to please visit BBC Urdu’s forum online to protest against this ban. I hope the Pak govt will see the voice of reason and revoke its decision asap.
