LAHORE – Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has banned a website by the name alislam.org which was controlled by the Ahmaddiya community.
An official of the authority said that the site had been blocked because Ahmadis were not allowed to propagate their religious views under the constitution of Pakistan. The PTA had already blocked several sites with inappropriate content, he added.
A source, however, said that the site was accused of blasphemy against the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the Muttahida Ulema Board had demanded of the PTA to close down the site.
Though Ahmadis inside and outside the country are widely criticising the PTA’s decision, there is no chance that the site would be restored, added the source.
