The country's new IT minister reportedly says the Web giant must remove "blasphemous and objectionable material" from its video sharing site, or face serious consequences.
The video-sharing site returns for anywhere between three minutes and three hours after being blocked for hosting a video that presented an unflattering depiction of the prophet Muhammad.
Words like "flatulence" and "quickie," as well as 17 phrases involving the word "butt," are banned by Pakistan's telecoms watchdog.
After weeks of online protest, Pakistan may be ready to kill its plan to create a massive URL blocking--i.e., Web filtering--system.
Prime minister calls the clip "blasphemous" and instructs the Ministry of Information to block access to the video site.
