It is being reported that Egypt is going to act on its fulmination about temporarily banning YouTube from the country.

The highest administrative court of Egypt has ordered that the officials should take immediate actions about blocking the streaming of YouTube for a month.

The officials are also advised to block all the links that directing towards any video on video site.

The main reason behind the blockage is that the YouTube allowed blasphemous and anti -Islam video titled as “Innocence of Muslims”.

The short clip containing the portrayal of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) triggered an outrage in the Islamic World and then it resulted in 2013 Egyptian Case demanding the ban of video streaming website.

Now, after five long years, the court has ruled that YouTube should be banned from the country.

This ban may cause a slight damage to video streaming website, but it would have a much greater effect if the Officials banned YouTube 6 years like other Islamic countries.

Since 2012, YouTube has been regularly updating its privacy policies and terms and conditions for taking down channels producing hateful videos.
