Lady of Heaven PTA

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has approached several social media platforms to block the trailer of film Lady of Heaven.

Lady of Heaven is based on the story of an Iraqi child who learns the importance and power of patience. After losing his mother, he finds himself in a new home, where his loving grandmother narrates the historical story of Lady Fatima (AS) and how her suffering as the first victim of terrorism spun out of control into the 21st century.

PTA has moved to block content in the country pertaining to what it termed the “sacrilegious” film.

The authority, in a statement, said that keeping in view “different reports” regarding the movie and its “sacrilegious content”, social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, have been directed “for immediate blocking of all content related to the said movie from their platforms”.

It said that so far, 336 links containing promotional material of the movie have been reported to the different social media platforms.

PTA sends notices to Google, Wikipedia

Earlier on December 25, PTA said it has sent notices to tech giant Google and online encyclopedia Wikipedia for disseminating “sacrilegious content” through the platforms.

In a press release, the regulator said that it was acting against Google after receiving “complaints regarding misleading search results associated with ‘Present Khalifa of Islam’ and unauthentic version of Holy Quran uploaded on Google Play Store”.

The PTA said that it has approached Google with the directives “to immediately remove the unlawful content” as it was a matter of a “very serious nature”.

The PTA also said that it had received complaints against Wikipedia for “hosting of caricatures of Holy Prophet (PBUH) and dissemination of misleading, wrong, deceptive and deceitful information through articles portraying Mirza Masroor Ahmad as a Muslim”.
