ISLAMABAD, Feb 17 (Online): Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has said unfortunately the judiciary has dealt the biggest blow to technology in the country as You tube was shifted to India due to court’s 2014 decisions.
“Wherever I meet the judges I request them with all humbleness that they should please not hear the technology related cases”, he said this while addressing a seminar in Rawalpindi Wednesday.
He went on to say that revolution has come in the media and most of the media has come on You tube.
He went on to say that our media took rapid strides towards university channels, twitter and face book since the last two and half years.
There are 43 institutions for journalism education and need is there curriculum be revised. We have to keep eye on future market. This is not possible that we acquire degree from university and later we come to know it has no value, he added.
He underlined that the culture of restriction has affected every department. The individual and collective thinking should not be eliminated.
He remarked that the unemployment will end due to foreign investment. All the people can not be same. Diverse thinking is symbol of the development. The society is ruined if ones own thinking is imposed on others.
He observed that state cannot regulate every thing. What has to be done let this decision be taken individually.
He remarked You tube, face book and Google are not now applications and they have on the other hand turned into countries. Too much investment has been made in them. Apple budget is larger than budget of several countries. Whatsapp is running with the capital of 22 billion dollars. These companies move to which country, development comes therein. We closed tek tok.
