The government of Pakistan must acknowledge that the ban on YouTube is serious self-harm. YouTube is not merely a collection of offensive videos, but an important tool for business promotion and advertising, as well as a source of education and awareness for the Pakistani people.
YouTube lies at the heart of the social media, and blocking it is a clear violation of the Pakistani public's freedom of information. Furthermore, it sets a dangerous precedent that collective outrage may be used to trample upon people's individual rights.
It is imperative that the government restores access to YouTube and its informational, educational and entertaining content for the nation as soon as possible.

Please recognize the YouTube's position as a vital component of the social media, and that its inaccessibility is a violation of our nation's freedom of information.
