Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has blocked YouTube for Pakistan. Whenever internet customers try to open the YouTube a message returns saying:

THIS SITE IS BLOCKED.

Dear Valued Customer:

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (www.pta.gov.pk) has directed all service providers of the country to block access to some blasphemous web content/movies. This content would remain blocked till the further orders from PTA.

First the Facebook and then the YouTube. Its another step from PTA to avoid country-wide disturbance due to abusive content posted over Facebook and YouTube. Facebook and YouTube will face huge loss because of traffic loss from Pakistan and some other countries who are restricting these sites for their users to avoid disturbance which this abusive content can cause posted by some elements not in the favor of world-wide peace.

This time using proxy won’t work as well.
