Violent protests against the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims” are going on different parts of the world. And, the popular video sharing site YouTube has a significant role in this. The site had turned down a request from U.S. authorities to delete video of the film from its servers, though it blocked access to the video in Egypt and Libya. Now, the blow comes to YouTube from two South Asian nations – Bangladesh and Pakistan.


Both of these South Asian nations, Bangladesh and Pakistan, have blocked access to YouTube from their territory.

The Bangladesh Telecom Regulatory Commission (BTRC) blocked access from 10:30 pm (local time) on Monday, September 17. The decision was taken following a non-responsive stance from Google India, through which YouTube is served in Bangladesh, regarding a request from the Bangladeshi authority to block access of the video. The Bangladeshi authorities, however, don’t intend to block YouTube for long. The site will be un-blocked once Google block access to the video trailer of “Innocence of Muslims”.

The Pakistan Telecom Authority also blocked YouTube in the country under the same ground.

Google said that the video streaming was censoring the trailer of the film in India and Indonesia. However, it also iterated its position on working with local law enforcement authorities, rather than taking down the video clip under pressure.
