Islamabad: Pakistan Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Thursday that the government would soon unblock YouTube after blocking blasphemous content.
Earlier, he claimed the youth was stressing him to open the video sharing website.
While talking to press, Malik said the government would ban sales of mobile SIMs on shops, and instead they would be sent to user’s home.
“Satellite phones are being misused, and we will not allow anyone to use them without registering them from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA),” Malik told press.
The federal minister said security officials had identified sensitive areas regarding Moharram. But he declined to give details.
He further said that CCTV cameras and helicopters would be used for monitoring.
While assuring the security of rallies in Moharram, he said additional force would also be deployed at Mosques and Imambargahs.
Malik appealed Sunni and Shia communities to remain calm and be aware of miscreants.
