Sindh government has just announced a proposal for a ban on Voice over IP (VOIP) applications of Skype, WhatsApp, Tango and Viber. While different walks of people are expressing about it in social media, a rather unusual statment came from Chairperson of Pakistan Peoples Party , Bilal Bhutto Zardari. In his tweet, he said
“Dear Burgers, Sorry about Skype/Viber/Whtsapp. Excuse us while we catch some terrorists and save some lives. SMS for 3Months”
Bilawal Bhutto has asked “Burger” person to tolerate this ban as Sindh government has to catch some terrorists and save lives of its people. Bilawal Bhutto has also suggested the solution for this situation which is to use SMS for communication for three months.
Though general perception is that when implemented, people from all walks and classes will be affected by this ban, Bilawal has used word “Burgers” which is a slang term normally used to mention elite class .
