KARACHI: What is this site ‘Millat Facebook’? It seems like a bad joke. A temporary ban on Facebook was okay but to ban the website indefinitely is no solution I am afraid. And for the sake of argument what will happen if matter deemed offensive is sent via email?Are we going to block the whole of the internet then? Also, the fact of the matter is that most Pakistani users of Facebook are using proxy servers to access the website. The government should understand that the internet cannot be blocked and that technology will always provide people with a way out.
