Time for Pakistani OMG activists to scream!

The Pakistani Telecom Regulator, its Ministry of IT and the
Interministerial parliamentary committee have taken concrete steps to
block undesirable content.

This time it has somehow gone too public while the same guy and
president of the Internet Service Providers association who advised
and helped the association to support the government to issue an RFP
for the implementation of a National Firewall for the country is now
opposing blanket censorship crackdowns since he isn't in the loop ;o)

Anyways, its Online content blocking and censorship season again and
this time its not even the usually suspected content but more of some
intimate phone calls between politicians and heads of government
departments hidden marriages and leaks!!!
