Mehwish Hayat opposes any ban on YouTube
She said such apps provide checks and balances that mainstream media doesn't and freedom of speech is the basic tenet of any society.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "Really banning YouTube? What's next Twitter, FB, Netflix or even whatsapp? Freedom of speech is the basic tenet of any society. In Pakistan, social media provides checks and balances that mainstream doesn't. Progressive states should need to resorts to bans."
