Hi Shahzad,
Thanks for this, we have been corresponding with Wahaj us Siraj, ISPAK and
ICT R & & D fund for clarity over the recent statements, and have been able
to get an extensive interview and will be publishing it shortly.

Furthermore, since after our constitutional petition that resulted in a
stay order, fortunately we have legal rights to inquire details regarding
the mentioned method of URL blocking and filtering. Given the state of
right to information act in Pakistan, the process is arduous but will bring
much needed clarity to the situation.

[ Constitution Petition Accepted For Fundamental Rights Online: See

 ]

[ Also populating our e-regulations timelines: See
here<http://bolobhi.org/resources/state-of-internet-in-pakistan-e-regulations-timeline/>
]

Needless to say, the uncertainty is worrisome.

Best,
Sana
