YouTube ban lifted in Pakistan?

youtubeYouTube, which is banned in Pakistan last September, is reportedly working in some parts of the country without any official announcement.

Express Tribune, a part of Express Media Group owned by Lackson Group of Pakistan, has asked on its Facebook fans whether YouTube is working or not in their regions.

There was a mixed reaction on the question with some respondents from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad nodded (of course through words) in yes. But there are also a number of answerers who replied in simple no.

Interim Information Minister Arif Nizami, while talking with a News Channels last week, gave a clear indication of re-opening of YouTube in the South Asian country. The worlds largest video portal was banned by the then government on issue of blasphemous content on its site.
