ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has deleted 778 links of the blasphemous content of a movie from social media.
According to the PTA, it “detected 778 links on various platforms i.e. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Daily Motion, Instagram, TikTok, Reddit, Ladyofheaven.com, Moviefit.me and Bestnetflix.com having trailers and promos of the movie”.
The PTA, however, clarified that no such links were found on Netflix. In this regard, two main websites — http://ladyofheaven.com and www.bestnetflixmovies.com — were taken down after following the procedure.
The matter was pending before the Islamabad High Court. The authority informed the high court that the film’s trailer was run on www.besnetflixmovies.com and it was also uploaded on other websites.
The court has termed the PTA’s report satisfactory.
The PTA asked popular social media websites to set up their offices in Pakistan.
