Back in 2013 YouTube was banned in Pakistan and now the country’s government has decided to lift their ban on the worlds largest video site.
Now Google has been working with the Pakistani government to get YouTube back in the country, it has now launched a local version of the website in Pakistan.
The new YouTube website in Pakistan comes with local language support and also a country specific homepage.
“We’re glad that YouTube is now accessible in Pakistan so viewers can watch and share videos, as well as take advantage of the vibrant and growing global online video community,” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.
The site was banned in Pakistan in 20143 due to a video which was offensive to Muslims, a US court ordered Google to remove the video from its sites, but Google refused to remove the video in Pakistan, this is why the site was shut down in the country.
