Lahore: Former Test cricketer Ramiz Raja thinks that banning YouTube will be a useless decision and can take Pakistan backward globally.
Following the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP)’s hints towards banning the online video-sharing platform in the country, Raja expressed his opinion related to the matter on his YouTube channel.
The cricketer-turned-YouTuber said that a lot of Pakistanis are expressing themselves and earning through this platform and if it goes down in the country, it will hurt the entire industry.
“I think just for a few ignorant people, it is unfair to ban YouTube in the country. There are a lot of people who are earning through it. If YouTube gets banned in the country, a lot of people will lose their jobs,” he said.
“It is important for us to think and plan according to the modern-day world where countries are growing digitally. I think we should promote ‘Digital Pakistan’ instead of going towards banning social media sites,” he added.
It must be noted here that the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) hinted towards banning YouTube in the country following unregulated content on social media, especially content against the judiciary, the armed forces, and the government.
