Kadyrov calls for unblocking access to YouTube which insulted Muslims

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Chechnya's head of administration Ramzan Kadyrov has called for repealing a ruling by a court in Grozny last autumn to block access to YouTube because of items on the video-sharing website that were declared to be insulting to Muslims.

"I think that that court verdict was justified at that time. But now there is apparently no need to block the resource," Kadyrov told reporters in Sernovodsk, Chechnya's Sunzhensky District.

"Extremists and terrorist organizations that have found shelter in various countries post items on YouTube with open appeals for violence, and it's impossible to give them a proper response if access to the resource is closed," he said.
