Cyber crime bill

People of Pakistan and especially people from Rabwah should be careful while using social media platforms such as Facebook twitter etc, after the launching of cybercrime bill in Pakistan. Everyone should be very kean and careful while posting commenting posting and liking posts and picture on social media as they can be send to the jail for 5 to 15 years. Religious hate and hate speech will be accountable and government will be taking it seriously.

Anyone can face a big problem as he start to use its social media accounts. Everyone should be totally avoid to comment any religious or other hate speech statement status post or comment.

Remember that two men has already been punished for 14 year jail from  Chiniot for posting hate speech in Facebook.

After much back and forth, the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Bill 2015 was passed by the National Assembly on Wednesday.

How open to scrutiny the okaying of the proposed legislation was, and perhaps how interested lawmakers are in this piece of legal drafting, can be gauged from the fact that of the 342 members of the house, only 30 members were present.

Now that it has been passed by the lower house of parliament, it is still not free from controversy.

Continuing criticism of the bill through its various iterations has been that it has been framed/written by individuals unfamiliar with the myriad ramifications and realities of the digital world.

Thus, as pointed out by PPP MNA Shazia Marri, Clause 22 criminalises ‘spamming’, or “sending messages without the recipient’s permission”.
