A National Cause- Together We Will Do It!

There are so many Laws in Pakistan like PEMRA Ordinance 2002, Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act, 2016, Anti-Terrorism Act 1997, NACTA Act, 2013 etc, which make images and content promoting extremism in any form, a crime!

Today, the penetration of internet and reach of social media stands at more than 35 million users in the country. With more than 20% internet growth registered per year, it is about time that we, the citizens of Pakistan, should join our voices and silent contributions to counter extremism on the internet and social media platforms.
