Ban on YouTube to be lifted in Pakistan after three years

In a significant development for internet freedom, YouTube has been allowed to function in Pakistan again, where the site had been banned for more than three years in the country. According to the ARY News report, the Ministry of Information Technology has given directions to allow YouTube to function once again in the country.

The popular video-sharing website had been blocked in the country since 2012, when a blasphemous video had been shared over the internet. When Pakistani authorities asked the website to take it down, the request had been rejected, leading to a ban in the country since then.
