From Dawn: Phone packages irk govt

KARACHI, Nov 14: The Sindh government has approached the federal ministry of information technology to seek its help in discouraging cellular companies from launching “talk packages”, maintaining that such things promoted immoral activities among the youth.

In his letter, Sports and Youth Affairs Secretary Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui quoted some reports suggesting that using some packages, youths were sending immoral messages and indulging in indecent conversation. He particularly made mention of the talk line “141” and the night-time talk packages being promoted by mobile phone companies.

“Such an outrageous initiative will not only involve our youth in undesirable activities that are not permitted in our society, but also promote criminal activities…” he observed.—APP
