YouTube had been blocked across Pakistan on September 17, 2012 following orders by then Prime Minister (PM) Raja Pervez Ashraf.
The premier had imposed a ban after YouTube refused to heed to the advice of the government to remove what it felt was a blasphemous film titled ‘The Innocence of the Muslims’

Earlier today, the Lahore High Court summoned the minister for Information & Technology (IT) and his secretary in connection with a petition challenging the ongoing ban on video sharing website YouTube, on 2nd August.
