Kuwait and Pakistan Block BlackBerry Service


BlackBerry is having some issues in Kuwait and Pakistan. In Kuwait, the Ministry of Interior is planning to stop BlackBerry Messenger. The issue is that BBM cannot be controlled by the Ministry of Communications or security authorities and hence, users of BlackBerry sets were taking advantage to spread rumors and call for strikes.

In Pakistan, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has also banned the use of all BlackBerry services “until further notice”. In addition, some 450 sites including Twitter and other social networks have been banned by the PTA. This is all on the heels of the massive Facebook ban due to “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” that caused serious uproar in Pakistan.
