The Telecommunications Authority of Pakistan (PTA) has sent a notification to Google Inc. and Wikipedia for the spread of blasphemous content through the platform.
The PTA said it had received complaints about misleading search results relating to “the current caliph of Islam” and incorrect versions of the Koran uploaded to the Google Play Store by the Ahmadiyya community.
On a very serious matter, PTA contacted Google Inc. with instructions on how to remove illegal content immediately.
The Platform will be notified under the 2020 Rules for the Removal and Blocking of Illegal Online Content (Procedures, Monitoring and Precautions) (“Rules”) for the removal of blasphemous content to avoid legal action by regulators.
Complaints have also been received about the hosting of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the dissemination of misleading, inaccurate, misleading and misleading information through articles published on Wikipedia that portray Mirza Masrur Ahmad as a Muslim.
After a detailed report on Wikipedia, the notification about the removal of the blasphemous content was finally delivered to avoid legal action.
If the platform does not remain compliant, the PTA will be forced to take further action under the 2016 Electronic Crime Prevention Act (PECA) and 2020 rules.
