Pakistan Government has banned to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) website in Pakistan after an official notification was issued today.
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) was asked by the government to ensure that MQM’s official website wasn’t accessible within Pakistani borders.
PTA, in response, has asked all Pakistani ISPs to block IPs of MQM servers to make sure that this website isn’t accessible, a spokesperson confirmed us.
We are getting reports that website isn’t accessible on majority of ISPs, however, it’s not completely down as of yet as some ISPs and couple of cellular companies are yet to block MQM’s website on their networks.
PTA has said that remaining ISPs and telcos will also block the website very shortly.
MQM, that’s otherwise sealed by now, was communicating through the website, however, that too has been taken care of by now.
