PM said the issue is before the court and all steps should be taken in line with the guidance of the court.
In another incident, MNA Muhammad Safdar has demanded an outright ban of social media during his speech in National Assembly. Safdar, who is also the son in law of PM, has also questioned Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) why it failed to impose ban on social media.
Let us know if you think alike Mr. Safdar and want an outright ban on social media to combat blasphemous contents or believe that menace can be tackled targeting the specific accounts involved in such activities.
