Pakistan Blocks Popular Satire Website Which Took Shots At Government And Military

Published on 30 January, 2017 at 8:52 pm By

While secular bloggers and critics of the establishment are methodically being silenced in Pakistan, the Pakistani government has started a crackdown on websites critical of it.

Pakistani media reports that Khabaristan Times, one of the most popular satirical websites in the Islamic republic, has been blocked.

The owners of the satirical publication themselves put up a Facebook post on Monday in which they said that the Pakistani government blocked the website January 25 itself.


The website cannot be accessed anywhere in Pakistan. But the website is accessible by those outside of the country.

Reports say that PEMRA blocked the website over ‘objectionable content’ about which it had received complaints.

The last articles that went up on the site mocked Nawaz Sharif and the very controversial blasphemy law of the country.

Khabaristan Times published articles that slammed the government and the powerful military of Pakistan. Many were clearly unhappy about the block.

 

But voices in Pakistan blame the military for the recent disappearances of secular bloggers and liberal writers.

The government has done almost nothing to bring back the missing bloggers and writers with the exception of Salman Haider, a renowned poet who was reunited with his family. But his family did not reveal who kidnapped Haider.

One of the worst countries for journalists, Pakistan’s military and the ISI back and nurture jihadi elements against India and Afghanistan. The radicalism that spreads because of this has made the country a hell for minorities, who can be easily killed by fundamentalists without fear of law.
