Pakistan to Ban Yahoo, Google, Bing (and 6 other site) for Publishing Blasphemous Material?

Pakistan is set to block Google, Yahoo, MSN, Hotmail, YouTube, Bing and Amazon, for publishing and promoting sacrilegious and blasphemous material.

Earlier, we reported Pakistan lawyers in a faceoff with Facebook and wanting death sentence for Mark Zuckerberg.

As per ToI, the Bahawalpur bench of the Lahore High Court yesterday directed the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to immediately block nine websites, including Google, Yahoo, MSN, Hotmail, YouTube, Bing and Amazon, for publishing and promoting sacrilegious and blasphemous material.

Though Pakistan’s Internet service providers haven’t confirmed the news, the report is being circulated across all media channels as well.

Is Pakistan becoming another China, without the Chinese leverage?
