Govt Launch Campaign against offensive emails, SMSs

This has happened before, and now again – Government of Pakistan has launched a campaign against offensive emails and text messages, said Geo TV citing its sources.

No doubt, govt of Pakistan especially the ruling party remains in SMS jokes/ Emails/ Social Networks – that circulate throughout the country – and this is naturally not liked amongst the leaders.

Again, one has to see the process of investigation for who actually initiated that SMS/Email, which is termed offensive or not appropriate. Agencies need to make sure that they use proper technology and the procedures before punishing anyone (It merits mentioning here that an SMS or Email circulates around the region with-in seconds, and it becomes extremely difficult to reach the actual source).

By the way, if you are found guilty, you can see the bars for as long as 14 years, so watch out and don’t play around with such things!

Moreover, this is not limited to Email/SMSs only – if you got a website/blog – even then you can be in trouble, given that you didn’t obey the Government of Pakistan. So Be Careful guys!

Excerpt from ‘The News’

  • Shame on this act… They want to suppress people voice somehow.. People dont mock them for their personal attributes, people mock them due to their acts against the normal govt.

  • sab se pehle to HUM SAB UMEED SE HEN ko band karna chahye

    GEO sab se zyada MAZAAQ urata hai PPP(ZARDARI).

  • This simply expose the true face of this so called democratic government which is no different from Musharraf dictatorship.

    Freedom to account their government is an inalienable right of every citizen. If they send people to jail for that then they went to jail for a noble cause.

  • this is so pathetic and looser attitude…and definitely goes out to show that govt is indeed guilty and just wants to quieten everyone down!!!

  • ye kuch bi kar le…log asal waja ko jante hn…asal ma ye aik ba-shour qoom se dartey hn

  • Zardari Bokhla gaya hai. Khalq Khuda Ki Awaz Naqara Khuda Hoti hai. Ab Hum loogon ki awaz ko koi daba nehin sakta. Zardari Ko chahiya kay wo apna character sahee kar laya to tamam problems hal ho jayan gay. Magar ya loog apnay aap ko to theek karta nehin hai, hum awam kay tax ka paisa asay kamoon per laga dayta hai. A very shameful act of Govt….

  • I know some websites owners who are running such blogs and websites where people come and bad mouth PM, President, and some female ministers plus their families, its ok if you don’t like GOVT. policies, you are free to criticiz ’em, but using such bad lingo for somebody and its family? For some people it would be democratic way of speech, for me this is nothing but bulshit.

    Is there some way out to contact some officials?

  • Its a shame……. how can a civilian government do this……… why are they acting like dictators………. what about our freedom of speech, what about our rights ????? :( ..

  • 14 years are you kidding me…… we are citizens of a free country……. i mean what the hell……. did you guys hear eminems mosh…. he literally humiliated Bush ………. with power comes responsibility…. they should eradicate the reasons for what they are being criticized for …. this is not the way. ……. :(

  • Any one notice that ufone gprs block,or blogspot com,i have many blogs but now cannot acces via ufone,

  • Just think about that person who’ve first gave this idea, how stupid he is indeed.

    It will be challenged in courts, caz it is against the basic human rights of expression of one’s own.

    Anyway another sppiting of our Govt. towards up, lets wait how long it take to reach back.

  • “Democracy is the best revenge”, where is the bloody democracy in PK? Zardi ab bolnay pe bhi tax laga de ga.. man what is happening here in PK. Yah Allah Humay Zardari se nijaat dila, humaray gunnah baksh de or hum pe reham ferma, Ameen.
