Its not about taking away liberties, and that is a bullshit excuse I’ve heard the world over. Media needs to be regulated we don’t need anti-nationals in Pakistan spewing their garbage all over the place causing civil discord.why would you let your government take away your liberties?
Essentially, for the past 70 years whilst the world went for increased connectivity and economic bonds, we've been chipping away our rights for the illusion of safety.Unfortunately, asking that question puts your life and those on this side at risk. If one takes it out of a the context of a military forum where the discussion is on essentially how good your side and mine are at killing each other - these are actual problems (among many) shared between the two nations which ironically are fueled by vested powers using the other as an excuse - and that line is blurred very much to many of us as well.
BS. There is rampant anti-Pakistan propaganda. Mostly it is initiated by your country India.
Hundreds of fake news websites and NGOs linked to Indian entities were used to spread propaganda against Pakistan internationally.www.trtworld.com
EU DisinfoLab’s report a ‘deep dive into a 15-year operation targeting the EU and UN to serve Indian interests’.www.aljazeera.com
A Harvard icon and fake media have been used in a global campaign to serve Indian interests, research reveals.www.bbc.com
India uses fake news and anti-state elements within Pakistan and abroad to spread fake news through social media outlets and otherwise. If Pakistan doesn't act this won't be curbed by itself.
It's a risk but one worth taking. It is the role of effective political parties and an independent judiciary to prevent the government from misuse of power.
It is a test of the strength and maturity of the much coveted democracy.
I'm not arguing against the existence of seditious and harmfully content, I'm pointing out that our region has a history of using national interests as an excuse to erode other fundamental rights enshrined in both our constitutions.dissidence is not appeasing & selling out to the enemy. dissidence is criticizing the wrong government policies.
Polity on both sides uses the threat of the other for their own gains, that much is undeniable.At what point does freedom of speech impact on the sovereignty and security of a country that is surrounded by enemies and with a well known political opposition and media whom are anti-patriotic.
When you can answer that then you will have the answer to your naive question
Reporters/ Media propagandists should be licensed with renewals every year. Any reporter who plays the anti-Pakistan should have his/her license revoked.Pakistan must regulate the media and all journalists must be made to work inside certain boundaries and their controlled excesses must be curbed. Free press is important but the media individual's can't be working for other countries or organisations.

Elimination of seditious propaganda is not the issue, who gets to decide what seditious propaganda is.Bro its not about criticizing governemnt. Its about doing propaganda against Pakistan.
Take examples of the likes of taha siddiqui hussain haqqani and the similar lot. One gets a good idea what dissent actually is, how the likes of BLA are supported and propaganda is spread in the name of freedom of expression.
Look how trump was silenced his twitter suspended. The freedom some sellouts have in this country is 10x more than that.
How it was used in hongkong, or similar arab revolution etc. Letting snakes roam free is analogous to opening your backside to uncle sam.
Elimination of seditious propaganda is not the issue, who gets to decide what seditious propaganda is.
