For the longest time, Pakistanis have been clamouring for the abolition of their country’s biggest threats to free speech – the blasphemy law.
On April 17, 2016, Shehryar Taseer, son of Governor Salman Taseer and Publisher of Daily Times, decided to take a stand by publishing an article about the blasphemy law on their website and in their daily copy.
Being a controversial topic in the country, people would naturally react to it. However, they were in for a different experience altogether. As the readers shared their thoughts regarding the issue, their statements were altered, real-time, on the medium they would least expect censorship to happen – the comment box.
