ISLAMABAD - Pakistan government has blocked Urdu and Pashto websites of Voice of America (VoA) for covering anti-Pakistan activities of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM).
If you attempt to access, the website shows several errors like “ www.urduvoa.com took too long to respond.” or “The connection to www.urduvoa.com was interrupted while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.”
According to an official from VoA , the Pashto website was blocked months ago when they covered a PTM rally in which anti-Pakistan slogans were raised.
However, the Urdu website was blocked just last week after coverage of PTM MNA, Mohsin Dawar’s press conference.
