The Senate’s Functional Committee on Human Rights passed a resolution last month and called upon the federal government to unblock YouTube, saying that the ban is not yielding required results since the controversial material is still available on the website. A similar resolution was opposed by treasury bench when Shazia Marri tabled it in the National Assembly last month.  SAMAA
