The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has contacted YouTube once more regarding the suspension of Dr. Israr Ahmed’s YouTube channel.
This is the second letter PTA has sent to YouTube in the last two weeks.
The authority demanded in the letter that the social media platform restore the religious scholar’s channel, claiming that the channel did not contain any hateful content. PTA went on to say that the channel contained lectures on Islamic teachings, and that banning it had hurt the feelings of millions of Muslims.
PTA also stated that the abrupt closure of a well-known religious scholar’s channel was unacceptable and that YouTube should reconsider its decision.
The YouTube channel had over 3 million subscribers before being banned on April 1, 2022.
