What you have heard is, sadly, true. The above is an advertisement published by the Government of Pakistan in various print media calling quotations from suppliers of such equipment and software.
I am also attaching the complete request RFP- URL Filtering & Blocking for proposal for the same.
We view even this call for such a proposal as a regressive step by the Government of Pakistan.
Various civil society organisations have registered protests against this proposed violation of fundamental rights of Pakistanis. We trust that supporters of individual and community freedoms worldwide will also add their voice against this insane and anti-people proposal.
