A bnaant-iloonvi ng
With a sudden increase in voices protesting against the ban on YouTube, I had become hopeful that the government would finally lift the ban. It was useless after all. Even though the website was banned, people still used it through various means – by using proxy servers and by changing their proxy settings. Anyway it was time the foolish decision was taken back. My hopes were further raised when there was talk of discussing the ban in the National Assembly.
So I can’t express in words how disappointed I was when I learned that the MNAs of the ruling party opposed tooth and nail the lifting of the ban. I do not understand what they achieved by doing it. Nations around the world
have struggled for years and made innumerable sacrifices for their right to freedom of expression. We, on the other hand, are a nation that loves to restrict its freedom and is always looking for ways to curtail it. What a shame indeed.
