Pakistan is among the 10 worst countries along with Iran and China on the index of internet freedom, according to a global survey released today.


Freedom House released its 'Freedom on the Internet 2014' report, which surveyed 65 countries and listed the index on obstacles to internet access, limits placed on internet content, and violations of internet user rights.

It showed Pakistan at 10th position, one step down from the 11th worst in 2013, an increase in the restrictions imposed on the internet.Its gradual fall during the past four years continues when it was 13th from the bottom in 2011.
Majority among the top ten worst countries are from Asia, including Iran, Syria, China, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

The report cites cases of internet abuse in 2014 including killing of three persons for being gay by a man who used social media to identify their sexual orientation. :frusty:

It says a judge in Punjab sentenced a Christian couple to death for blasphemy in relation to a text message they deny sending, while a lawyer defending a professor for alleged blasphemous FaceBook post was killed. :frusty:

The report shows that the limitations on content were unchanged and the popular video-sharing YouTube remained blocked on government orders since September 2012.

Freedom House cited media watchdog Reporters Without Borders, which documented a total of 74 netizens in Chinese jails as of August 2014—the most of any nation.

Among those in jail is Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo, serving an 11-year sentence on charges of "inciting subversion of state power" for publishing online articles, including the prodemocracy manifesto Charter 08.

The report also noted the September 2014 sentencing of prominent ethnic Uyghur academic and webmaster Ilham Tohti to life imprisonment, which it called "the harshest punishment for online dissent in years."

It said authorities also routinely shut down access to entire communications systems in response to specific events, including in the wake of clashes between police and locals in the restive Xinjiang region, which is home to ethnic Uyghurs who chafe under Chinese rule.

U know Pakis&Chinese love Animals in quite opposite way.Chinese love to eat all animals and Pakis love to watch all animal videos.One thing i didn't get about Pork!stan 'Is Paki court ask animals to provide 4 male witness after **** cases' :jaw:
How can they identify if the animal is Mard - e - momin or not to testify?? :hmm:

Even if the animals identify the guy, then there are more chances that the accused guy will accuse that the animals have done Blasphemy and so they need to be halal.

Then the head line reads,

A Pakistani Mar - e - Momin saved Pakistan from Allah's wrath by executing the animals who have done blasphemy !!

People of Pakistan will say "God is Great !!" and "Gods willing"
