Alternative to YouTube

November 11, 2012

A LOT of people are arguing about the ban on YouTube. I would rather say that it is time for some entrepreneurs in Pakistan to come forward and start a video sharing website where people can upload videos and share.

As far as the availability of the technical and international content is concerned, the more people would use it, the more content we would have.

Anyone who has some video that can be helpful should upload that for others to use it. Besides, there is a market for a local video sharing website as YouTube is banned in Pakistan and Iran.

So, when the market is set and the need is identified why not some Pakistani entrepreneurs come forward and take it. Why does not the Pakistani corporate sector take a look at this? The world is full of opportunities, not obstacles.


Examinees’ woes

YOUTUBE has been banned for the last two months in Pakistan. Every student, businessman and people who use this website for improvement in their respective field cannot access this website.

I myself am preparing for civil service examinations. I used to visit YouTube for videos on various topics. But, unfortunately, since the website is banned, I am not able to access a lot of informative content which can help me prepare for examinations and enhance my knowledge.

I request the authorities concerned to resolve the issue which has become a big problem for the Muslim community as it is being deprived of knowledge.
