List of Blocked Websites in Pakistan [Blashphemy Crackdown]

In crackdown against blasphemous content on Facebook earlier, PTA has blocked around one thousand websites, mostly of which are proxies, a service that is used to access blocked content.

PTA officials earlier confirmed ProPakistani that Facebook and Youtube were blocked at domain level, while Wikipedia, Twitter, Flicker were blocked at URL level due to blasphemous content on these websites.

Official applauded ISPs’ role during last 5 days and said they were of immense support for blocking all the websites/URLs that PTA had asked them for.

He said, at this massive level of operation, where there are 2/3 URLs were coming every minute, some websites went blocked at domain level instead of URL level, such as Wikipedia. However, there was another monitoring team in place to make sure that implementation of orders is being done correctly.

He said that if anyone find any blocked domain is un-just they can contact special cell for the purpose at 0800-55055 or [email protected]

Similarly, users can contact the same numbers and email to report any blasphemous URL that is not blocked, said the official.

  • Most of these websites are Proxy websites which are used to bypass the filter, glad to know they are banned as well.

      • I did not even know whether my site is being used for FB or anything, it doesn’t have too much of traffic any ways, but i guess it is banned now as some one has reported it out!

  • Good effort by PTA, we all must appreciate PTA’s performance in this whole matter

  • I see a long list of _____ above praising the PTA for its dirty work, only time shall tell that it was all part of a Govt. excuse to divert attention from the real issues. In the meanwhile internet and internet culture in Pakistan is going through its darkest times!

  • Bhaiyo..mujhay to lagta hay ye koe saazish hay pakistanio k khilaaf… aur dosray muslim countries main kun NAHI laga ban facebook,youtube… youtube to ek achi web site thi agar positive view se dekha jaye to… google ki sites per bhi kuch wrong cheezain hay is ka mutlab ye thori k pora internet bund kerdia jaye…

    • I think YouTube was becoming a threat for our politicians, with all kind of “zardari sahab sharam karo” and “zardari _____” videos being uploaded by aam awaam.

      Same might be the case with FB. People are missing the fact that Parvez Musharraf happens to be the most successful campaigner on FB, so our politicians ofcourse wanted FB banned as well.

      Maybe we’r missing the bigger picture.. or maybe its just me.

      Anyhow.. YouTube ka dukh hai :/ TV tha mera!

      • I Agree with you, Imran Khan is also one of the uprising politician representing young people (FB users)and he has successfully compained on FB to aware and unite young blood.

        The time has come we should not ignore the tricky and nasty politics other wise our next generation will not forgive us as we have forgiven our forefathers and accepted Pakistan + Corruption.

    • Allah humaray leaders ko Himmat day to telenor wagera bhi block ho jaye gi.
      Saudia, UAE, iran aur other countries main pehle kiuon block honi chahiye thee… aisa kahan likha hai k pehle woh block karaingay phir hum. Babul Islam hum hain woh log nahi.
      wesay Iran, China, Gulf main facebook already blocked hai.
      Aur ager Nabi (s.a.w) ki gustakhi ker k tarakki kerni hai to mujhay nahi chahiye aisi tarakki

  • facebook achi cheez thi hum loag to bohot achi terha use kertay thay.. baaz loag misuse kertay hay to is ka mutlab ye hua k bund kerday aisi cheezain absolutely not… is waqt facebook kehi ban nahi hay sivaye pakistan k.. farmville was also a great time pas which thousands uses to spend time on facebook.. Awaam se ye huq to na cheeno k wo kuch acha waqt bhi na guzar sakay after facing so much crises in the country.

Facebook ki itnay taraf dar ho to IS SAWAL KA JOWAB DO kay Holocaust to DELETE hogaya automatically but DRAW ________ DAY q nahe? Mai manta hoon kay Facebook ko BLOCK kar daina koi SOLID solution nhe, but ye ek acha initiative zaroor hay.. Allah nay himmat di to inshaAllah hum aor steps lain gay…

      Bottom Line, HUMAIN NABI SAWW say bhar kar kuch bi nhe, even Parents bi nhe.

      • Tum shayad nahe janete jis net per aur jis computer aur jo pehane howe ho wo sub un ka bana hai jin ko tum itna kuch keh rahai hoo. Phale sub Muslman mil kar kuch aisa kuch karo phir yeh karo ge tu bahter hai ok

  • Why banning everything?

    banning wont stop the drawers but actually increase the drawers number & in Pak we will not know who is doing what against us or for us in other parts of the world.

    my brother launched a small company through facebook & he was getting clients from it….

    now see how our government trashed his income…

    Na bijli, na pani, na gas, na ata, na cheeni, aur ab na hi koi cyber world…

    Banning is not the solution, Making a civil right case in USA is the only solution…they remove anti-politician & pro-holocaust stuff…because people in USA can goto to court if facebook offends masses in such way…

    But all we Muslim did was made “CLOSE Down Draw Day Page” …. such web pages wont make a difference only Contacting USA Court Does!!!!

  • Facebook aur youtube nahi khula to yakeen janiye kitnay logo ka rozgar khatam hojayega pakistan main..pehlay to loag apnay cable net aur dsl services hi nikal daingay..just like this many points will arises.

    • yup, Allah par yakeen rahoo, us kay haan DAIR ho sakti hay ANDHAIR nhe, ALLAH blessings’re beyond boundries:).. Logon ko daroo mat, Islamic history paro or dekhoo ka Mulamanoo na ALLAH/ISLAM/NABI SAWW kay liye kia kia qurbaniyan di hain… logo ko mayoos karna chor do…

  • hina baji tu naraz ho gai han :( (BE KOOL)

    PTA should ban TWITTER & FACEBOOK forever like China did.
    And Pakistan should make its on SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE.
    And believe me its going to be massive…….

    • yar china ki bat mat ap kero ham un se apne ap ko compare nai ker skte. china ne pehle apni awam ko wo sab jo google or FB wghera provide kerte ha un jese substitute dene ke bad band kia ha.

  • Mobile users can still browse facebook through a third party Application, becoz that app uses a United Kingdom ip or proxy, if these urls are blocked, there are many ways to access them, so its upto us, we shouldn’t use these sites who are keen to talk and making activities against Islam, even if these weren’t blocked, go to myspace, hi5, friendskorner etc, but never these sites like facebook whose bloody bunch of admins and their servants forgets their own T.O.S when its violance happends against Islam, they really kick you hard if you’ll say/do a little bit of bad thing about their religion, thats what their religion teaches those f*****g bunch of peoples, Now Saad Mustafa is a big big proof. Complete bycott.

  • dosto main nay suna hay k aab tak facebook khul raha hay through some webs is thats legal ?

  • Hina ji, Saudi,UAE,IRAN en sub ne Facebook ko bAnn kiya huwa hay, and 2nd thing China ne takrebun har bahar ki chez ban kiya huwa hay even in networks and in websites, china ne facebook,Youtube,Orkut,Tweter, etc etc sub bAn kiya huwa hay, ye sub kuch Ban hoNe se wo log marr tho nahe gaye na ? Yahan b aisa hoNa chahiye tUb he pakistan tarakki karega

    • That is a totally different matter, China is manipulative and hides its internal and political matters. China’s sole reason to restrict FB and other sites is to keep their people in dark, they don’t have democracy in China!

    • dude china mein log kuttay bhi khatay hain.i wonder if that adds something to your TAB HE PAKISTAN TARAKKI KEREGA !
      jis banday ney kharab hona hota hai woh band ghar mein bhi ho sakta hai kisi 3rd party ki zarorat nahi hoti.yeh sab hamaray apnay haath mein hai !

  • Yahan pe aik larki ne b akar aisa nahe kaha k im suporting bAn oN faCebook………..strange :)

  • Facebook is a bad site n should be banned till pakistan winning the t20 worldcup again.rite?

  • Guys i dont see the point of blocking all these websites even facebook, its like we are running from the battlefield…. we should have stayed!….if they can tease us about our religion then why cant we tease them about stuff like holocaust ?…. someone even did that but facebook took down the page immediately, well why not make another one? they dont cost you money do they? keep doing it again and again…or maybe have “PISS ON USA FLAG DAY” lol (sorry for being a racist) …but yes everyone would print usa flag and piss on it post the videos lol…. would be fun to see them pissed…Ye to unke liye hum asaani ker rahe hein unko jo cheez pakistan se dur rekhni hogi wahan per wo yehi kam kareingay and we will have to block those sites, someone said “KUCH MOUQAY AISE HOTE HEIN JAHAN GHAIRATMANDI KI JAGHA AKALMANDI SE KAM LEYA JATA HAY” wake up people….!!!!

    • yar mere khial me ham esa krengai to bat brehgi or wese bhi ISLAM ne hme dosro ke mazahib ko bura bhla kehne se mana kia hua ha

  • banning won’t stop anything & it certainly do not affect anyone.if they think those websites were something deleterious then they should have banned all the porn sites as well ! That should be the root step,

  • PTA ye kaam to boht teek keya hai FACEBOOK aur yotub ko band kar deya hai q ke us main humre peyare nabi ke toheen ki hai.
    ab pakistan ki govt ko ye karna ho ga ke js ne ye kaam keya hai us ko poori dunyan ke samne la kar saza dena cheye ta ke dunyan ko pata chale ke muslaman ka eyman ketna paka hai muslmano jago aapna eyman ko jago
    PTA ko ye karna ho youtub se un video ko delet kar dinaur websait ko open ka din

  • @Hina…

    Miss Hina i think you are forgetting that Pakistan ko Islam ka Qila kaha jata he…It’s the only Muslim atomic power in the world. Do not down-grade Pakistanies. And yes you should also not compare Pakistan to UAE or other. Nobody knows which country is a better muslims country or not. Allah knows only. Other muslim countries are not protesting against this kind of sacrilege. Only country to take stand against these activities is Pakistan.

    If you want to play games than there are so many games out there available online, you can also play “Second Life” which is very popular game than farmville. So many other games are available on CDs. If you want to make friends you can join Hi5 and other social networking sites. Just invite them over those networks by importing your contacts. It’s not something which takes too much time. What’s so special in Facebook? Why you want to encourage those who ridicule our Prophet (P.B.U.H)?

    Why i am saying this is that Facebook DID TAKE DOWN A PAGE WHICH WAS AGAINST JEWS AND HOLOCAUST WITHIN 20 MINUTES. If a specific page was taken down by facebook because it was hurting jews sentiments then why can’t they take down that page which is hurting muslims? so many blogs were also taken down by authorities because they were against jews. aapko pata he k cartoon mockery k liye banaye jate hain..jis ko dekh ker log hanste hain aur mazak urate hain…cartoon banana koi izat barhanay k zumray main nahi aata..

    So can you bear down this kind of discrimination by facebook? Just to make friends and play games?

    I think we need to make a choice here and set priority. Play games or …..

  • Muslims continue to fall to newer lows without realizing it, with Pakistan leading the way. We have Mullah’s protesting Facebook when most of them dont even use the internet, let alone Facebook. When I hear people praising such actions of the government, I can only think of how far we have strayed from the epitome of human society that we once held.
    Our actions no longer coherent with expected results or outcome. Just knee jerk reactions of a dying carcass. Sad day indeed, and I fear from what I see that we’ll have plenty coming. I pray I’m wrong.

  • this ban has nothing to do with islam or blasphemy. the sooner everyone understands this the better. this is about controlling the flow of information. all the people out there protesting does a single one of them even have a fb account? this is taking pakistan back to the stone ages and killing free thought.

  • ban facebook & youtube… Aesi sab websites ban honi chahey Pakistan main …jis pay Students & dosray log ja kay apna time Zaya kartay hain… SMS Packages & Late night call packages bi ban honay chahey…. Jis Channel pay daikho..sms package advertaisment… sick kar dea hai in sab cheezon nay Pakistan ko…

    I appreciate PTA for doing all this & in future also

  • hello,

  • Facebook is taking us to stone age with a false privacy and terms and conditions as one can not even delete accounts and there are many flaws and its not freedom of expression its taking us to stone age you are talking about …
    For us religion and Pakistan comes first.

  • Yaar phit telenor,pepsi,coke and many other jewish items bund honay chahiye Pakistan main.. Aur pent shirt k bajaye shalwar kameez aur burka pehnao jub itna hi hay to theek kaha hina baji nay..

  • Nabi se itna pyaar hay to telenor,pepsi,coke aur bohot c aisi jewish cheezo pe bhi ban lagna chahiye.. Pent shirt ki jagha shalwar kameez aur burka pehna chahiye.. Nabi se mohabbat k liye namaz bhi pherni chahiye 5 waqt ki..

    • Acha agr kuch burra kam phaly hi ho rha hay, to kia baqi tamam burry kamo ki bi ijazat honi chahiye??? Pepsi, telenor etc sab bnd hona chiye, i agree, but ye kia Logic hoi k agr wo bnd nhe to Facebook (jis na NABI SAWW ki toheen karnay ma barpoor kardar ada ki)bi na bnd ho…

      Jewish products banning is another matter
      n
      Facebook blockage is another case..

      try to understand

  • AOA,

    Buhat acha hoa ke facebook block ho gae. per sirf chand website ban karne se Hazoor ki mohabbat zahir nahi hoti. Hona to yeh chahye tha ke hum sb loog US, UN or Eroupy Union ke courts main Toheen-e-Risalat ki petition dair kartay takay koi Khabees har dafa Musalmano ke jazbaat se na khail sakay. je se ke Yahoodiyon ki Holocast ke baray main baat karna jurm hay, balkay sirf Hazoor hi nahi sb Nabiyon or Sahabah Akram or Buzurdanedeen ke baray main bhi koi ghalat baat karay US, UN or EU or all Arabic Umma, in ke khilaf baat karnay par pabandi lagae or saza kari se kari rakhain.

    Ik or baat jo mujhe herat ziada kar gae hay wo yeh hay ke jb proxy servers ko bhi block lag sakta hay to pronography ki sites jo ke through out the pakistan available hain on per bhi block lagna chahye. Yeh bhi ik sochi samjhi sazish ho sakti hay hamaray nujawano ko kharab karne ke. Sawal yeh hay ke pronography sites band karwane ke liye bhi koi na koi long march karna paray ga phir ja kar kiya Govt in pron sites pe ban lagae gi???

  • Wait, did u just said proxies are banned? thats funny, cuz i can still access just any site *mrgreen*

  • i requst PTA to block all uncencered web sites, to protect owr new genaration.

  • guys guys guys stop how many of know how to open blocked sites ! without use of any proxy ? tip for you all there was an article about this long ago enjoy.

  • Websites band honay say kuch faida na hua hai aor na hi ho ga is liye government of Pakistan aor PTA ko foran yeh ban khatam kar daina chahie
