Hashtag #WeWantYouTubeOfficeInPAK is trending in Pakistan. Why? Many YouTubers and social media users are urging YouTube to create its office in Pakistan. They believe having a physical space in Pakistan will resolve many of the issues that the local YouTubers face.
Just recently, Pakistan’s famous YouTuber Raza Samo’s account, “Awesome Speaks” was hacked. Sad Samo took to social media to share the sad news, leaving his fans in utter frustration and shock.
Soon, Samo’s fans started a virtual protest drive on Twitter for opening a YouTube office in Pakistan. All they seek is an end to their difficulties. According to them, a YouTube office and a Youtube Space in Pakistan can help them work without any worry.
Past few days have been very stressful for me, my channel got hacked I retrieved the access later but lost monetisation, in short I won’t be able to make any revenue, im waiting for google’s response. I am not tweeting to make any new hashtag trend just here to ask u for prayers

What is YouTube Space?
YouTube is an American online video-sharing platform. Meanwhile, YouTube Space is a physical location made by YouTube for content creators. It is present in a few cities around the world, including Los Angeles and London. This space is used by YouTubers to learn about producing content as well as providing them with tools to create content for their YouTube channels.
YouTube has YouTube Space and YouTube offices in many Asian countries. However, both platforms are not available for Pakistani YouTubers.
While addressing to the demands, a famous TV personal turned YouTuber Waqar Zaka tweeted:
