ABSTRACT
The article reports that YouTube blames Pakistani Internet service providers for the inability of users to access the site when they restricted local access to the site. Pakistan ordered local Internet service providers to block access to YouTube because it was running material insulting to Islam. YouTube claimed that such order led to the inability of users around the world to access the site. A spokesman for the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority said that the order had been lifted after YouTube removed the content deemed insulting to Islam.
