Facebook, YouTube blocked in Kashmir: Reports
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
It seems Internet service providers (ISPs) have blocked Facebook and YouTube in Kashmir following a directive by the government to restrict access to the websites. Reports in the media state that this move is in light of the protests and outrage against an anti-Islam video on YouTube. A report by Greater Kashmir states that mobile telecom companies have also blocked GPRS services on mobile phones. As per the report, mobile Internet access has been barred by several cellular service providers, including Vodafone, BSNL, Reliance, Aircel and Airtel.
No Facebook, YouTube for the folks in Kashmir?
