Pakistan’s Supreme Court could eventually block YouTube again. while talking about the case of a man involved in racial crime.
The case was heard by Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin and Justice Mushir Aalam. The court declined to comment illegally on social media platforms that spoke to judges, armed forces and the Pakistani government. Highlighting the issue, Mohammed Amin said:
“We cannot deny the freedom of submissions. Our salaries are paid with people’s money, they have the right to raise questions about our decisions and our performance. Although the constitution also gives us the right to privacy.”
Justice also said the Judge’s family is continuously being monitored on social media. Justice Amin also asked the Federal Investigation Agency and the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to take action against cases where judges and their families were ridiculed by citizens.
A spokesman for the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority or PTA told the court it had no jurisdiction to remove any conflicting content online than it could report. The Judge also ruled that YouTube was banned in several countries and that no one was allowed to post any video against the European Union and US government agencies.
The Supreme Court has released a notice to the Pakistani foreign ministry and the Attorney General to resolve the matter. It looks like the world’s digital platform has been thoroughly tested these days. Laws, for example, the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act 2016, have been regularly followed by the PTA and FIA.
Egypt’s highest court has ruled that YouTube may be temporarily banned in the country. The video-sharing site has been blocked due to the anti-Islamic video “Muslim Nudity” released in 2012. The video was about the life of “Prophet Mohammad (SAW)” which caused a worldwide outcry from Muslims.
The case was taken to court in 2013 but the case was taken to court and the decision continued during the appeal, they wanted a total ban on YouTube but after 5 years the decision was to ban YouTube and the decision was final.
The video titled “Muslim Nudity” was a low-cost video for 13 minutes. The video was a clip and was allegedly made in California US for private money. The video sparked anti-American protests in Pakistan, Egypt and other Muslim countries when it was released in 2012.
The Egyptian Ministry of Justice says it will not be able to implement this decision without disrupting Google’s Internet search engine. It will make a lot of energy to use it properly because YouTube is the most widely spoken speaker in the world. YouTube will have to suffer huge losses due to the ban as Egypt is the most populous country in the Arab world.
However, YouTube has changed a lot since 2012 and shows great determination to remove hateful and speculative content that could hurt the feelings of millions.
