Pakistan - Ban on social media can lead to anarchy, warns Chairman Senate
Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani said on Tuesday that restrictions placed on social media can lead to anarchy in the country.
The Chairman Senate was addressing students at a private university in Islamabad. He said that for different classes exist separate levels of justice.
“If we had respected the constitution then the institutions would have been strong,” said Rabbani.
“One channel to express views is opened, which is also being restricted over the pretext of state institutions,” said Rabbani.
The Chairman Senate said that the authorities are closing down the avenues of communication on their own.
He said that Pakistan was supposed to be a welfare state but it has turned out to be a security state.
The Chairman Senate criticised the government saying that former president Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf was not presented before the courts.
“Musharraf is dictating courts from abroad,” said Rabbani giving the example of the former military ruler.
The Ministry of Interior has launched a crackdown on blasphemous and profane content on social media.
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar on Wednesday had directed the chairman of the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to prepare a framework for regulating the use of social media and targeting blasphemous and sacrilegious content.
