Supreme court and blocking website approach

Supreme court has been moved to order Electronic Media Regulatory Authority to take steps for stopping display of website carrying blasphemous caricatures of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The apex court has been approached by a citizen Dr Nasir Ali through a writ petition Wednesday. Malik Qamar Afzal, additional secretary Supreme Court Bar Association will appear on behalf of the applicant in the Supreme Court. The petitioner has taken the stance in its writ that US net companies have made the publication of blasphemous drawings source of income and released its website. It is mentioned beneath the site that it be lent financial support as it involves concern for the protection of Denmark.
The blasphemous cartoons have been released on the internet.

The applicant has prayed the court to direct Pakistan Regulatory Authority to stop advertisement of these sites in the country besides issuing orders to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to censor such sites.
This website has come to Pakistan after passing through 10 sites. Time has been bought to display this website on internet.
Such type of incident had occurred in the supreme court of France. Memorials of Nazis were presented before the people of France on internet for auction. Supreme court of France not only restrained US internet company Yahoo from advertising these sites but also imposed heavy fine on it.
The company contested the case in the US Supreme Court. The latter pronounced verdict that internet programs were affecting the people of France, therefore, Supreme court o f France has every right to restrain the company. All the transmissions of Yahoo company were stopped.
The petitioner has prayed the apex court to issue directives to national companies and foreign internet services to clamp ban on such sites which are set to disparage the belief of Muslims by displaying sacrilegious drawings
