The government’s struggle to control the Internet

According to reports from various international organizations, since the Internet was introduced in Pakistan in 1992, it has been of very limited use in some institutions, whereas in 1996 the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority was established. In 2007, when the use of social media, such as Facebook, its use increased dramatically. That’s why the Cybercrime Act was enacted in 2009 to control the Internet, but many people started speaking out against it. Opponents say that the act is trying to curb the freedoms of the common people, but the government was aware that the act has been put in place to prevent terrorism and hate content through social media. Despite the enactment of the Act, the use of social media has not diminished, but it has continued to increase overnight, according to a 2014 report stating that more than 200 million people in Pakistan Using social media, two-thirds of them are 30 years of age or younger and that is increasing rapidly. As the use of social media has increased in Pakistan, the government of every era has also tried to restrict it.

It is estimated that 70% of social media users in Pakistan use Facebook only. People use Facebook not only to upload their pictures but also to openly express their opinions. Social media has changed the direction of the traditional media industry. Previously, media used to broadcast custom news in which a lot of important news was not being broadcast, but social media has given voice to everyone. In the minutes and hours that Kratato broadcasts on social media, she gets the news across the world. Dai becomes too much of the news channels should be special programs. There are thousands of instances of this in Pakistan where the media did not report the news, due to the over-virality on social media, the same event had to be programmed.

Another report states that the use of social media in Pakistan has played a vital role in creating awareness and seriousness among the people. Unbelievable writers were born with the help of social media who had no knowledge of the world today. If there was no social media, such people would have been overwhelmed. Unfortunately, these good writers continue to spread hate on various accounts, even on social media, which leads to chaos and corruption in the society. It is well known that social media was a major contributor to the killing of Mashal. Social media is also used by various political organizations to advertise their activities and keep workers engaged. In Pakistan, where social media is being used for good purposes, its negative use has also intensified. One report has said that in Pakistan, Facebook users are twice as likely as men to be female. All women are in the same report also said that 60% of these women’s Facebook accounts are faked. Many extremist organizations are doing their work all over the world through social media, a recent example of a Karachi student reaching out to ISIS in Iraq.

At present the Pakistani government is introducing a new law governing the internet, but the question mark here seems to be whether this law will be implemented in the past as we have seen in the past that different governments have made rules in this regard, but in practice these laws With regards to the new law that is being made, the government’s position is that we are preventing the misuse of the internet. Moreover, people in Pakistan put a lot of content on the internet which makes their owners a lot of income. While this is not benefiting the people of Pakistan – give this position of government There is nothing wrong with controlling the internet, but people’s doubts about the new law are that if the Internet experts make the law, it will be workable and it will be expected to reduce errors, but the opposite is happening here. Like governments, this government is making laws through those whose own The Internet is probably the case. Then it is difficult to stop laughing at some of the laws that have come up, such as registering to create accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, and that will require a registration fee. First of all, it is decided that this will greatly reduce the number of social media users as people are already buying the most expensive packages of various mobile companies and using social media, the registration fee will not be tolerated by the public. Yes, however, if there are more likes, followers and subscribers then it is mandatory to register so it can be easily done as they have reached the point where due to constant hard work and patience they have reached the only registration fee. Cannot close your account for non-payment. Registration will be required to create accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube and the registration fee will be paid. First of all, it is decided that this will greatly reduce the number of social media users as people are already buying the most expensive packages of various mobile companies and using social media to pay such fees and people will not be able to register.

The current government should evaluate the importance of social media more than previous governments, because in its coming power, social media is no secret. In this case, this government will also follow in the footsteps of the previous governments.
Making laws to control social media is time consuming, but it is wrong to make this law through haste and inexperience. It’s not a hurry to get this done in a few days. If it takes months, it will take years, but this work should be prepared in the light of suggestions from Internet experts and various stakeholders who use it effectively in Pakistan
