Porn gate-keeping is necessary, 3G/4G made it more accessible: PM Imran Khan

The premier stressed the need of protecting the youth, especially children, from the immoral content which is available on the internet.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the proliferation of tech gadgets and 3G/4G internet technology has a huge role in making all kinds of content accessible for people of different ages. He made these remarks while chairing a meeting on blocking pornographic websites in Pakistan.

PM Khan added that the character building of new generation has become more important than ever especially in the age of modern technology. The premier stressed the need of protecting the youth, especially children, from the immoral content which is available on the internet.

Khan was told that the Content Delivery Networks (CDN) particularly Cloudflair [sic], which has 1-2% of the total internet traffic share, were mainly responsible for serving pornographic content. Furthermore, he was also informed that most CDNs have policies in place against serving pornographic content.

The meeting was told that the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has to work with internet service providers and CDNs to curb pornography through CDNs. Professor Dr Ata-ur-Rehman, Chairman Niall Rashid Khan and other key officials attended the meeting.

PTA has been strictly monitoring objectionable content over the internet. Earlier this year, during a hearing, PTA informed the Islamabad High Court that it blocked 980,000 links, which mostly contained pornographic material. In the report, PTA told the honourable court that 865,187 links of pornographic websites were blocked. Furthermore, thousands of links containing hate material against armed forces were blocked.

    • The guy raiding nights clubs in London now gives people lectures on morality and ethics and how can I miss Islam. Someone should first give him a shut up call. If he can’t accept his own daughter we Pakistanis have no hope. Should stick to snorting cocaine and leave us alone. Pakistanis have had enough of lectures. Maaf Ker our Jaan chor hamari.
