The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) told the country's 70 Internet service providers Friday that the popular website would be blocked until further notice, the Associated Press reports.
The authority did not specify what the offensive material was, but a PTA official said the ban concerned a movie trailer for an upcoming film by Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who has said he plans to release an anti-Koran movie portraying the religion as fascist and prone to inciting violence against women and homosexuals.
Even better, this move apparently cut off traffic to the video site for a mere two-thirds of the world.
Seemingly, this is not part of Pakistan's recent hire of a US PR firm to "polish its image".
UPDATE: One day later, the ban is lifted.
