The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has recently blocked access to over 21 unverified Quran apps and websites. The decision was made in an effort to combat the spread of fake and misleading religious content on the internet.
The PTA has stated that these apps and websites were not verified by the relevant authorities and were spreading false information about Islam and the Quran. The PTA also warned that these unverified sources can be harmful to the public, as they can spread hate speech and extremist ideologies.
The PTA’s decision to block these apps and websites has been welcomed by many religious scholars and leaders, who have expressed concern over the proliferation of unverified religious content on the internet. They have emphasized the importance of authentic and accurate religious teachings, and the need to combat misinformation and extremism.
The PTA has also urged the public to use verified sources when accessing religious content on the internet. They have provided a list of verified Quran apps and websites, which can be accessed without any restrictions.
