Users of YouTube in Pakistan are currently experiencing difficulty accessing the platform. The root cause of this issue, which is preventing YouTube from functioning in Pakistan, will be elaborated on in full detail.
Why YouTube Is Not Working In Pakistan?
Access to YouTube, as well as Facebook and Twitter, has been halted by the Pakistani government. This measure has been taken as a precautionary step to prevent the spread of misleading information following the arrest of Imran niazi. The internet speed has also been reduced to aid in controlling the situation.
While this decision has been made in order to maintain stability, it has been met with criticism, as it is seen as a violation of the right to information. This is not the first time that YouTube has been blocked in Pakistan; previously, from 2012 to 2015, uploads of anti-Islam videos were banned for an extended period of time.
