Pakistan’s porn conspiracy

Published: November 2, 2010

The writer is web editor at The Express Tribune jahanzaib.haque@tribune.com.pk

It seems the morality of the state of Pakistan has come under an ongoing attack by the global media who has taken the fight to expose our hypocrisy to undefendable online territory.

First, there was the Fox News report on Pakistan ranking number one in the world for ‘sexy web searches’. Our land of the pure was dubbed ‘Pornistan’ and subjected to ridicule based on Google Trends and Insights, identifying us as having a peculiarly high level of interest for racy terms, which included a particular interest in horses. Of course, this report was completely bogus, the numbers were played with, it was a conspiracy to which Google diplomatically responded that “the results for a given query, such as those reported in this story from Pakistan, may contain inaccuracies because the sample size is too small for the results to be statistically sound” (key word, ‘may’).

But this is just scratching at the surface — there are other such plots being nurtured online which have yet to be launched for mass consumption in the global media. Take for instance Alexa, which collates hard data on which websites are being browsed by internet users from various geographical locations.

A quick glance at the top 100 visited websites in Pakistan, (updated on a daily basis and extrapolated over a period of time) reveals — horror of horrors — that a total of nine websites hosting adult content, ranging from ‘live sexy webcam chat’ to ‘desi delights’, are frequently visited by users in our motherland. To add insult to injury, two of the aforementioned sites rank in the top 50, beating out the likes of Songs.pk, The Pirate Bay, Pak Wheels and WordPress. Porn, Alexa would (mis)inform us, trumps music, cars, illegally downloaded software/films and blogs for parts of our local audience.

To give you a layman’s estimate of the number of visitors, we are looking at hundreds of thousands of our local online population flocking to these listed sites daily. Bear in mind that this is just the pool Alexa is analysing. Adding up the number of ‘sexy’ websites in Pakistan’s top 500 list, and additional users that have either gotten waylaid, are not registered in Alexa or are masked, and we may have a fairly significant slice of our online populace browsing porn (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority cites an estimated 20 million online users in Pakistan).

This is indeed a terrifying revelation for the land of the pure. Even though we all know such data is lies, damned lies, perhaps a statistical anomaly and an obvious conspiracy against Pakistan, could such data not be used by our enemies to falsely build the case that we are after all, not so pure, not so moral and, most of all, not so different from the rest of the world?

I fear it is only a matter of time before this latest online conspiracy is hatched against us in the western media. A lowly media flunky wasting time checking out his/her blog stats on Alexa will chance upon Pakistan’s penchant for porn, write up a 500 word report on the scandal and send it off to Fox News. We must act before it’s too late. Alexa is but one among many sites pulling such data together to bring Pakistan down. It is now the duty of the perverts among us to uphold the name of our fair country by finding the best IP address masking software and uninstall all Alexa-related software to hide our online trail. For the true patriots, it is recommended that IPs be falsely registered as emerging from India. Deny everything and blame our neighbour. Only then may we be truly safe and untainted.

    I don’t know about people putting up porn, but I know most Pakistani men, especially teenagers, surf porn online from their homes and during school hours. I remember when I was in Lahore, the guys in my computer class would be watching pornography and minimizing the webpage as soon as the teacher would come by to have a look at their programming codes, and this was 8 years ago in A-levels. Now that sexually explicit material has become so common, everyone’s seen Emraan Hashmi’s unedited movies, and huge signs of La Senza are displayed on main roads, ofcourse people will be tempted to watch more. The internet cafes are everywhere and just about anyone willing to pay for the hour can get to do whatever they like on the internet. It’s not like there’s a filter on the information.
    If you think of the times when people used mIRC, what do you think people asked after the famous “a/s/l”? Guys wanted to have cybersex. And I’m talking about #lums and #l-g-s, both of which were Lahore based channels. Recommend

    Love the sarcastic bit. Absolutely love it. :D

    I’ll take it a notch further. The Freemasons alarmed by the dangerous Zaid Hamidization of Pakistan have now decided it is time to break the back of this purely chaste and Islamic country before it becomes a menace unto them. For this reason, they have now decided to enlist the help of statistical websites to “prove” to the world that Pakistanis are just like ordinary human beings, and are not at all like the chaste people that they portray themselves to be.

    In order to fully satiate this ruse, the Freemasons (including the anti-christ supporting Illuminati) have enlisted the help of CIA which in turn recruited the Mossad, which in turn asked RAW to poke fun at Pakistan through their paid intermediaries in the telecommunications world.

    How’s that for a conspiracy theory? :pRecommend

    The inter-net is abused the world over. In every country without exception.

    Lets drop this we are so holy and pure crap and frequent mention of the word “conspiracies”(Fox News,CIA RAW,Mossad,MI6, whatever).

    As an economist, it outrages me that we are all, civilian and khaki alike, tax cheats and land-grabbers (read plots). Even if we do pay taxes we under-file. That alone speaks volumes about our low moral stature/character.

    Actually, it is a little worse. It’s called hypocracy. “Munafiq” mentioned a zillion times in the Koran. We pray, fast, give alms and go for hajj — the more times the better as though “sawab” is multiplied manifold with each visit.

    But we cheat on our taxes.

    The rest, whether it is our world standing on the corruption scale or the lowest tax-to-GDP ratio in the world, just follows ineluctably from the above.

    The Sindh government can pass all the “resolutions” it wants against TI. That will change nothing.

    As the Koran says

    “Allah will never change the condition of a people until they change it themselves”.

    No conspiracy theory in those immortal words, is there? Or did the Koran fail to take into account Fox News? Recommend

    Considering the degree of repressed sexuality in Pakistan, there probably is a fair amount of porn surfing going on. But this is interesting – everyone is assuming the surfers are hetero men surfing straight sites. What if there are aunties hunting for toy boy connections on the net?! What about aging gay men surfing for young blood?! Or younger aspirants looking for a sugar daddy/mummy? Jahanzaib, I suggest you investigate deeper!

    And why let the Indians walk away with top honours – how about we start sending out stories that it’s actually the Pakistan Taliban that are surfing these sites. That would almost make a front page headline in the New York Times!Recommend

The fact that the freedom exists in internet to post your BIASED views, NARROW MINDED thinking, and SHALLOW personality syndrome online and on TV has made people billionaires. Ask Facebook, FOX, and the hate mongering bloggers. We need to PRO-ACT not RE-ACT. Hookers, liquor, crime, hate and jealousy existed in the times of prophet mohammad (PBUH). You can never fight or finish the things you do not like. You don’t like google, create your own search engine, you dont like Facebook, create your own social networking site, You do not like muslims getting shot at in American developed video games, you create a game where muslims kill non muslims. This is what freedom is all about. Enjoy, life is short. I got no problem, if Pakistan is first in sexy web searches. As long as Pakistan is not the murder capital or WHORE HOUSE CENTRAL, its all good.

    Umm…..as a MAN, I support porn… but ofcourse, watching porn also comes with a responsibility… I dont think that there is anything wrong with watching porn… it is a NORMAL thing.. hell we have sex, outside a wedlock, there are liqour stores out in Pakistan, there are young people having sex, making out at parties.

    I have been living in Canada since I was a child, and now i’m a 32 year old man… I dont find it an insult if Pakistan is considered a country where porn is watched more than usual… it is the same thing anywhere else in the world, atleast, here, you can watch porn on tv, and secondly, ppl here do have sex, with or without a marriage, so really, I can understand why a man would resort less to porn… however, in Pakistan, having sex for a normal guy is NOT A NORM, therefore, porn kicks in, and satisfies the man’s needs… Anyways, just my 2 cents, i’m an extremely open minded person, hell I think Pakistan should have it’s own porn industry, make it bigger than Bollywood, and I assure you that Pakistan would make way more money than Bollywood ever has, or ever will..

    The fact of the matter is to accept the fact that the tools used by the masons are working very effectively. On a daily basis whether we like it or not we get bombarded with dirty jokes through text, facebook updates and tweets. The dirtier the better. Our TV is now half porn and internet is openly available. We are getting sensitized on a daily basis and everything which has some sexual content is liked and accepted. A nation which has a literacy rate of hardly 15% and almost 70% of our population is below 24 years, is bound to react like this when the accessibilty to sexual content is so easy.
    This is the way they operate, they empty the souls and attack on the value systems. They create chaos all around and the masses get busy either to make their end meets or get solace through the curvy figure dancing in front of them.

    Purely in the spirit of taking the conspiracy ‘up a notch’, here is a fresh angle to the conspiracy.

    The CIA-RAW-Mossad- Freemason combine targets the pious in this world by unleashing ‘non-muslim Taliban’. Now they have decided to target the ‘hereafter’ of the ‘pious’ by accusing them of a love of pornography. The idea is to tarnish the image of the pious in the eyes of the Almighty and ensure that the Almighty does not bestow the promised prize of 72 nubile maidens on them.

    Can’t argue with the numbers.

    But are you telling me that Pakistan, with a total internet using population of 20 million ranks higher in surfing porn than the US and Europe – with a combined internet surfing population of 500 million people do not surf or search more of porn?? And China, with an internet population of close to 400 million (believe me they let their people search for porn as long as its not about the government)

    What about the guys in US who spent their entire day downloading porn onto their office hard drives when they should have been looking at the stock market??

    I can agree to the argument that Pakistanis are perverted and would be searching for sex 99% of the time (which by the way includes EVERY one this page – blog author to commentators)!

    What I cannot agree with is that we are the sole perverted country in the world.

In U.A.E, there is no difference between Indians and Pakistanis. What the Indians offer that can be named after Pakistan. Some Indian porno sites mail you naked pictures of their film stars. Let’s be careful. Besides, look what we read every day about our film actresses who wed with Indians like ‘Noor’ and Veena Malik who has an affair with an Indian she is working with in a Indian Drama serial. What can you expect from them. These women and many others are in the same commerce.

Kids are curious and they are easy targets – where do the major chunk of kids learn about ‘where kids come from’…from an older schoolmate or a more ‘knowledgeable’ classmate, curiosity about sex is a primal human instinct, its going to get out somehow or the other, we need to provide better avenues to channel that sort of energy rather than scoff at it and mutter a few incoherent and impractical statements about following the ‘right path’Recommend

    In stead of deal with sexual studies in a professional intellectual manner we skirt around the issue. The number of men that are sexually frustrated in Pakistan is an alarming figure. Men have sexual urges which is a development of the human process but because of religious pressure they literally put a lid on it hence the internet searches….then there are the religious thumpers that feel if you ban something it will go away …they do not realize that its the opposite …..banning something increases interest.Recommend

Let us also consider that pornography can be a benign outlet for the sexually frustrated in comparison with potentially damaging alternatives such as adultery, unmarried sexual activity, out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually-transmitted diseases, incest etc… In fact, in the West, where I live, some people are now blaming porn as a distraction from actual sexual activity. Instead of worrying about porn, we should use our energy to instill in our children values that help them manage their lives properly and avoid the pitfalls that lie before them.Recommend

    I am not at all surprised at the responses I have seen to this article. Instead of sexual education at school we all require education on our religion so we can see the difference between right and wrong. Jahanzaib has given suggestions on how we can prevent external sources of compiling web data on Pakistani users but I think what’s more important is actually discussing why the interest in porn exists in the first place.

    We all know pornography and adultery is forbidden in Islam and there are measures given to tackle the sexual urges of man and woman, men in particular. Some say it is forbidden in islam and that the youth are repressed and so have a right to porn, but remember Allah knows best. Some will read this and say ‘why is he bringing religion in to all of this?’ But why not, doesn’t our religion provide an insight in to everything? what about our very own existence for e.g. To understand all the problems in the world, people need to first think about why there is life on this planet, who created it and its purpose. And Islam gives you all these answers!! Where sins have been highlighted, Allah has given us measures to prevent us from committing them too.

    Though islamiyat is taught in schools it is obviously not comprehensive enough and even if it is, it all depends on whether the youth choose to follow it (and obviously they choose not to!) Their hearts and minds have been corrupted hence they believe pornography and other related things forbidden are acceptable and have become a norm in modern society.

    This is sad because it shows us where the youth of Pakistan is and where its going. Sadly the very foundation upon which this country was formed does not exist anymore. Perhaps it shouldn’t be called the ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan’ since there is nothing Islamic left about it, and this is taking in to account all evil that exists in our country not just porn which is just a small piece of a huge puzzle. We can all predict that the next generations to come will be entirely secular and wont know the difference between right and wrong just like the kufrs. People who themselves watched porn in their youth and found it absolutely acceptable will approve of their children to do the same and perhaps they will even sit with their children and watch it. One question for the youth, is this the society and future you want for Pakistan?

Of course an expose like that will not sit well with the women’s lib organizations in the west, after all we are talking about numerous gainfully employed women and men too. Also can’t “confuse” women’s emancipation with their exploitation , now can we? Other wise they will loose their moral high ground to educate the east in how to treat their women. And lets remember that the only shame for a society is “watching” something that there basic instincts compel them too anyway, hence the need for religion to “try” and tame temptation”, but condoning the reprehensible practice of actually producing and marketing the smut is nothing to be ashamed of, that is just business you see, supply and demand, freedom of expression for the arts under the freedom of speech and blah blah blah. Tell Fox, when they become righteous enough to stop the production of porn in the land of the perpetually delusional and reprehensibly hypocritical we’ll become righteous enough to stop watching it in the land of the pure, until then have a coke and a smile and in the immortal words of Richard Pryor ” shut the fudge up”.

    If the male and female population of any country are kept as separate as possible (only mehram mixing allowed), then this type of behavior is a logical corollary. Indeed it would be very abnormal for the population NOT to be obsessed with sex/porn. Its human nature, one always craves that which is denied.

    So what’s the solution? Well, I personally do not think an obsession can be cured by marriage. And a western style society, in which people have their fill of sex early on, is an impossibility in Pak. So folks, no way such behavior can stop. Just relax and enjoy the porn!Recommend

    This is for the author

    I have worked in PTCL ITI NOC for past five years and have researched content filtering for some time now.

    While the reality stays that in a deeply conservative country like Pakistan when we have such an open and free media(TV/video/Internet/Cinema), there would definitely be adverse outcomes. And Pakistan is not the only victim but many other states affected for one way or another.

    That said, auhtor’s report doesnt provide the exact technical details making it look more of a half baked truth.

    Google Trends
    There might be high trend seen for specific key words for Pakistan but for other words like ‘sex’ you will be able to find our neighbor topping the list. So does that mean i am blaming India to be the top surfer on this subject. No.. The truth is the ‘most-porn-accessing-country’ is not decided on basis of tools like google trends or alexa but the amount of internet usage happening in netizen states of the world.
    See a rough list of Number 42top countriesNumber 42 with most people on the web

    Technically speaking China is the biggest explicit internet content user, they also have the most thriving sex industry.
    But does the Author know why the dont get traced on Google trends? Thats becuase they bowse in the chinese script. Even the URLs are in their own languages many a times.

    Alexa
    The live cam website is on Number 42 which is actually better than rating of such websites as compared to many other countries e.g Canada where pornhub.com is on 32 (keep in mind that there are way more internet users in Canada than there are in Pakistan)

    So dear author stop the melodrama of blowing things out of proportion making people feel bad about themselves and instead try addressing the real issues like why govt. has not been able to ban explicit content websites. And what role does media or our cultural values play in all this.Next time you write an article on technology do take help from someone who is aware of it.Recommend
