It was a great discussion with #VOA on #InternetFreedom and Media in Pakistan.

Key take  - Out of 223 million Pakistani, 184 millions have access to mobile phones 75% internet user in Pakistan are using #Facebook 

PTI government has blocked 800K websites, increased number of requests to take down Facebook pages and #Twitter handles during the first three years of tenure

In 1997, there were 4,555 publications, including daily, weekly, monthly and biweekly magazine in Pakistan, now reduce to 445 dailies/weeklies, and monthly 

PTI won election by tactfully using the power of #socialmedia and using mainstream media, however, their actions against both are strange and absurd #asadjan
