There seems to be an unending discussion on the closure of YouTube in Pakistan, the irony is that we are all busy in highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of blocking the contents of YouTube. We have thousands of IT engineers and experts who can create a website similar to YouTube, which can be operated from our country. YouTube is operated from out of Pakistan and we can only block its service; we cannot remove any material containing obscenity and other unwanted contents. We have to request its foreign owners to do so and on their refusal we block its service in Pakistan which, no doubt, as it is a necessary evil now-a-days, causes distress among the users. It is hoped that person having expertise in this field may pay heed and take the initiative.
