Pakistan Blocks Blogs Before George Bush’s Visit

First, a bit of disclaimer. I have nothing against Pakistan or its people. Infact, I have realised long back that they are pretty nice folks.

Ok, with that out of the way, here’s a report from Neha at Global Voices Online that the Pakistan government has blocked Blogger. This means that no one in Pakistan will be able to view a blog hosted on Blogspot.

Here’s a reaction from Abysmal, a Pakistani blogger.

“It has come to my attention that all ISPs in Pakistan are blocking all blogger blogsites. Previously some sites deemed inapropraite were blocked, but this is utter nonsense, why do a blanket blocking of blogger, are you so scared of people power that you feel a blogsite can be so harmful to you and your power.”

As usual, there are folks who have found out an alternative way to view the blocked blogs in Pakistan!!
