    The Pakistani government, under President Pervez Musharraf, has issued a directive to all Internet providers in the country to block access to Youtube due to blasphemous content on the popular video sharing site. Users all over Pakistan are receiving messages stating that the "Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (***.pta.gov.pk) has directed all ISPs of the country to block access to ***.youtube.com web site for containing blasphemous web content/movies."
