New Delhi: In a survey undertaken by Tech Research company Comparitech, it has found that Pakistan is one of the worst countries in the world for internet freedom, owing to the restrictions on social media and political reporting.
The survey was conducted on five criteria, namely, censorship on torrents, pornography, news media, social media, and VPNs. Pakistan scored 7 out of 10 on the censorship scale, equally with Belarus, Turkey, Oman, United Arab Emirates and Eritrea.
These countries have also scored the same due to similar approaches to Internet censorship.
In the survey North Korea scored 10, China 9, and Russia, Turkmenistan and Iran scored 8.
