ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority Friday asked video-sharing platform YouTube to take immediate measures in order to block vulgar, indecent, immoral, nude and hate speech content for viewing in Pakistan.
Besides, the top telecom regulatory body has also issued directives to the YouTube asking to put in place an effective content monitoring and moderation mechanism so that the unlawful material is detected/deleted and not accessible within Pakistan.
PTA has done so keeping in view the extremely negative effects of indecent/immoral/nude content available on YouTube and to prevent repugnant discord due to the presence of hate speech and sectarian material.
PTA has approached YouTube to immediately ensure blocking of objectionable content and to prevent the usage of its platform for disseminating such content. In addition, the platform has also been directed to put in place an effective content monitoring and moderation mechanism so that the unlawful material is detected/deleted and not accessible within Pakistan.
