Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has been quite active nowadays as they consistently ban different applications in Pakistan. This is making the lives of many people difficult and also limiting them from having a good leisure time at home.

From banning PUBG to having other applications and social media sites banned. The list goes on. However, recently, the Supreme Court has hinted towards a ban on most used video uploading, sharing and watching apps, YouTube, and people are not happy.

It might cause many difficulties for people who are earning their bread and butter with the YouTube platform.

Even celebrities are coming out to call PTA for the imposition of this ban, and to request them to nullify and ignore it. Pakistani celebrities are always ever ready to share the spotlight and to school those who are doing anything incorrectly.

It also makes us realize that YouTube isn’t just a platform. No, it is becoming an entire industry for Pakistanis.

So now the question is, whether banning such a major digital industry really a wise choice?

Banning a $400 million industry a wise decision?

In addition, how will a 400 million dollar industry be compensated? We know that excessive use of any application, YouTube, Tik Tok, Snapchat, etc. is indeed harmful. However, is it really wise to make sure that the use of an app that is allowing to promote growth in the economy be banned?

Perhaps now is the time to put our thinking caps on. As of now, no confirmation about the YouTube ban. Let’s just pray it stays that way and YouTube isn’t banned after all.
