Pakistan lifts Wikipedia ban after three days

  • Pakistan has lifted its three-day ban on Wikipedia.
  • The ban was imposed over content that regulators deemed “sacrilegious”.
  • Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif ordered officials to unblock Wikipedia after determining that the ban was not an effective measure to restrict access to objectionable content.
  • Sharif’s office stated that the unintended consequences of the ban outweighed the benefits.
