Links to blasphemous content blocked in Pakistan
Pakistan has blocked over 700 links leading to blasphemous content. An anti-Islam YouTube video has triggered violent protests in Islamic world. U.S envoy to Libya lost his life as a result of violent protests. Protesters also went violent in Pakistan as well on Sunday and tried to attack U.S Consulate in Karachi.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry ordered PTA to track and block all the sacrilegious content that disgraces Islam or Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) in any manner. PTA chief is required to submit a report about the actions taken in this regard.

According to him PTA wrote to YouTube administration requesting the elimination of such content.
