Freedom and Security In Pakistan

I am not in position to take any stand right now. First i’ll document some of the instances of curtailing freedom of speech and expression on ground of public security, law and order.

So, First Case

Authorities in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province on Thursday banned Skype, Whatsapp and Viber to facilitate security operations, triggering angry reactions from numerous users of the instant messaging applications. “Terrorists and criminal elements are using these networks to communicate after the targeted operation was launched (against them),”  (Side story: Ironically Pakistan was on Thursday placed among the bottom 10 countries in the Freedom On The Net 2013 report, which measured internet and digital media freedom in 60 countries.)
