Pakistan Telecom Authority bans ‘offensive’ text messages including the use of ‘Jesus Christ’
 
A Pakistani Christian leader has attacked The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) who is reported to have told mobile phone companies to begin blocking text messages containing “obscene” words including “Jesus Christ.”
 
The PTA has reportedly ordered operators to begin screening text messages by November 21, 2011.
 
Wilson Chowdhry, Chairman, British Pakistani Christian Association, has told the ASSIST News Service that one of those “offending” words is “Jesus Christ.”
“The inclusion of the name of Jesus Christ within this list of offensive words is another example of the intense hatred that resonates within Pakistan towards Christians,” stated Chowdhry.
