Too bad... ...we just didn't leave Pakistan offline entirely. If these people want to live in the dark ages with the rest of their society, they certainly don't need to participate in an online society.
Hopefully their citizenry will grow tired enough of this censorship and forced religion that some day they will rise up and overthrow the government.
Some terrorists don't wear rags on their head, go without showers for weeks, and smell like camel crap. Instead they live in America and support Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for president.
Isn't that the whole idea of censorship? To keep people from knowing truth so that lies might be perpetuated?

The idea here is that the Internet exposes people to ideas (and other people) that they otherwise might not be exposed to. Whether or not these particular ideas are any good is for individuals (not governments) to decide.
Anyone who claims that Pakistan (or any other country for that matter) doesn't "need to" participate in an online society....is missing the point of an online society.
If you want to see Pakistan remain in the "dark ages," with no hope of being exposed to Western ideas, then by all means keep talking the way you're talking.
You know, I thought I could claim that the Pakistanis had a lock on medieval, narrow-minded thinking, but it's become clear they enjoy no such monopoly.
