फ्री बेसिक: डाईंग इन कोल्ड विद थ्री अदर्स

फ्री बेसिक कहता है कि ‘हम आपको इंटरनेट से जोड़ देंगे ताकि शिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य सब कुछ आपको इंटरनेट से मिल जाए’। बताईए कितना भद्दा मजाक है ये। इंटरनेट से शिक्षा मिलेगी? इंटरनेट से डॉक्टर मिल जाएगा? साला प्राईरी हेल्थ क्लिनिक हैं नहीं, स्कूलों में छत नहीं है और खाने को पेट में अन्न नहीं और बाँट रहे हैं फ्री बेसिक।

Pakistan banned Facebook and then Youtube for showing off or carrying content which goes against the faith of Muslims.
