Pakistan Blocks YouTube Over Content

Ad Feedback

Pakistan's government has blocked access to the video website YouTube because of what it calls "sacrilegious" content.

The move comes just one day after it blocked Facebook because of a page that encourages users to post images of Islam's prophet Muhammad.

The Pakistani people also took to the streets to protest the social networking site. Protestors were upset over the Facebook page declaring today "everybody draw Mohammed Day."

"They are actually going to enhance the aggressive role of the youth because Facebook is mainly used by the youth, so we are here to protest against that," said Yamna Alam, one of the protesters. "We are here to show that we can sacrifice our lives for our prophet Mohammad."

The Facebook page was created to protest threats made by a radical Muslim group against the creators of the animated television show South Park, who depicted Muhammad in a bear suit in one of their episodes earlier this year.
