Pakistan Blocks Wikipedia

(March 31st 2006 13:00) The Pakistan Internet Exchange (PIE) controlled by Pakistan Telcommuncation Authority (PTA) has started to block the entire domain of Wikipedia. Wikipedia can be considered to be the single largest storehouse of knowledge having 3.5 million pages hosted on the domain. It seems as if the authorities are extending their censorship on free speach to now implement a Censorship on Education by blocking off the wikipedia website. Please join us to protest against this new development in Pakistan.

Update: March 31st 2006 20:00 – It appears that the blockade of wikipedia website has now been lifted. So far there is no official word as to the reason for this temporary ban. We hope wikipedia now remains unblocked.
