Viber, Skype, Whatsapp and Tango Banned In Pakistan


Youtube has been banned in Pakistan for quite some time now. Has this banning brought any benefit to us? This question remains unanswered in everyone’s mind because you can open any video from hundreds and thousands of other links available. Why only Youtube was on the hit list? If the government wants terrorism to get under control then are a number of other basic measures that need to be taken into account before depriving the public of this luxury cum necessity.

No justification or reason can outsource the benefits these applications are providing. Think of those hundreds of student who have come to study to Pakistan from different parts of the world.
