PTA Should Block Local Porn Sites, if Not All

We know that PTA has control over the internet traffic in Pakistan, and that they can block/ allow any website in Pakistan.

Increasing trend of Local Porn websites that are adding more damage than international porn sites, due to

  • These websites involve local faces
  • Usually they consist of MMS, homemade videos and hidden cameras
  • Lives of Characters appearing in these websites get spoiled – what happens to our girls after their videos hit internet is very clear

I am not writing much on following

  • What are URLs of these websites
  • How much traffic share these porn websites have
  • How MMS and other format of Videos reach these porn websites
  • What damage they are doing to our social values

But my emphasis is on that PTA MUST block usage of these websites in Pakistan.

What to Do?

Ban all those porn websites that are run/operated/used by local people. It must be noted that there are many websites that are run by users in India, Bangladesh and vicinity, but their usage is high in Pakistan too, so block all these websites

One may ask me, that there are millions of websites on internet, PTA can’t block them all – Okay fine, don’t block million websites, but how about those couple of dozen websites that share 95 percent of traffic?

Given that PTA has the capabilities for blocking these websites (through ISPs) and if local porn websites are still allowed then following quote reveals some meanings to us.

“If you are not part of solution, then you are part of Problem”

Let’s hope some action on this in near future.
