Is Google taking revenge from Pakistanis for legal case against it?

Couple of weeks ago Pakistani security agencies demanded data of terrorists from google and it refused to give it to them. A legal case was filed against Google for protecting terrorists and their data.

It is to be noted, that recently Google provided wikileaks related data to CIA “without” any warrant.

And today, Google has disabled almost 90% (unconfirmed) Pakistani adsense accounts with almost 1.5 months income in them without any warning or “appropriate” reason as to for which website the account was disabled for.

I’m not certain about this, also this is not my opinion that Google is taking revenge over this issue by acting like this, but I don’t have any other reason to assume that why Google is treating Pakistan and Pakistani people as not equal to other members.

  1. I am surprised AdSense is available to publishers in Pakistan.

    Google is a U.S. company and it doesn’t need to answer to Pakistani law enforcement. In the past, Google has denied U.S. intelligence access to data but then they can’t really have it all. When it comes to National Security, laws here take a turn and corporations that have a lot at stake cave in for strategic reasons.

    When Google blocks access to information it has in a country such as Pakistan, its usually because they don’t think people in Pakistan would care.
