Blocking of YouTube creates problems for students, teachers, researchers and businessmen. If we judge the cause of blocking in many countries it’s related to local and light issues, but the blocking of YouTube by many Muslims countries is a deep issue, like anti-Islamic videos or blasphemous content. 

In the first step, all the Muslims countries should be committed to addressing such problems, while YouTube administration should also take a step to prevent such elements that use YouTube against any religions, cultures and society. 

Government of Pakistan should ask YouTube administration to remove the anti-Islamic videos without any conditions. Muslims countries should also make a public platform like YouTube for their masses.
