Aww… Rizwan we are with you in this hour of pain :p Added the website to the above list of websites blocked in Pakistan
Wiki is backup
Sarim not only thanks for helping me update this list, but really thanks for notifying as I was pretty much hopeless as had to read few articles from wikipedia and a friend of mine needed some research stuff too! :)
lol u r welcome
me too needed wiki badly and just when i needed it it went off
I wonder why they turned wiki back on, maybe the authorities contacted?
There are millions of proxy websites available. Just google proxy site and you will know.
F**K the Government.
You can have your own personal proxy site too :) (sssSSSHHH…..)
Ahhhh I’m not in your situation :):) but i would like to give you the way from where you will access redistricted websites. Download hotspot shield in your computer and connect it using its feature and you are ONNNNNNN!!!!!
That is nice idea too :)
