Divided opinion regarding YouTube ban in Pakistan.


According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 51% Pakistanis believe that Pakistani government’s ban on YouTube should not be lifted; 46% said that it should be lifted.

A nationally representative sample of working men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “In September 2012, the Pakistani government banned YouTube nationwide for an unspecified amount of time. Some people feel that the government should now lift this ban whereas others feel that the ban on YouTube should be maintained. Should the ban on YouTube be lifted or not?” In response to this question 46% said that the ban should be lifted and 51% said that the ban should not be lifted. 3% did not respond.
