‘YouTube’ is banned after some sacrilegious caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were transferred from Facebook to YouTube. For more of the news, read here.
The ban, which also included certain pages on Flickr and Wikipedia sites, occurred a day after access to Facebook was suspended on orders from a Pakistani court.

Depiction of Muhammad is considered blasphemous by some Muslims.
