Blogger/Blogspot Censored In Pakistan

Another pointless blow against free speech.

Desicritic Teeth Maestro reports that Blogger has been censored in Pakistan

As I write this post on the 4th of March 2006 all sub-domains on Blogspot.com/Blogger carrying thousands of free blogs continue to remain censored for all internet users in Pakistan. The mess started on the 27th of February when the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority issued instructions to all ISP to block all websites displaying the controversial cartoon images of Prophet Muhammad.

Good grief!

A banner to demonstrate solidarity against this action, which is vitiated by the millions of options to get the word out, is also available.
