"Reinstate YouTube"

This refers to the letter dated November 9th 2012 of Aminur Rahim of New DOHS, Mohakhali, Dhaka. I totally agree with him. It is absolutely not necessary to ban the whole website. This website is a great tool for all sorts of reasons. All that is probably required to do is just filter all the contents relating to that silly matter. In the Arab countries such as Dubai, YouTube is not banned at all. In fact all my friends there get to check everything on YouTube and post stuff from there on Facebook.

It is a stupid video. And yes, people are being more stupid reacting to something they know nothing about. I love music. This is a great website to check out all the latest music and at times when an old tune pops up on radio or on TV that I don't know about, I could just put a key word of the song on YouTube search engine and I get all the different results. And that way I get to also check other tunes that I didn't know about and later eventually find out about the exact song that I was looking for.

I also urge the government 'to consider people's sufferings and only filter what requires filtering instead of banning the whole network.'
