ISLAMABAD – Haalhawal.com, an online Urdu newspaper launched in Quetta in 2016, has abruptly become inaccessible.
Publisher and editor Shabbir Rakhshani told JournalismPakistan.com that the website was blocked, reportedly by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority three days ago.
Users trying to access the website get to see the following message: “This website is not accessible. The site you are trying to access contains content that is prohibited for viewership from within Pakistan.”
Rakhshani expressed surprise at this sudden blockage and said there was no objectionable content on his site.
He has written to the PTA in a bid to find out the reasons for the closure. A response from the authority is awaited, he said.
