KUALA LUMPUR: Google has blocked the anti-Islam clip “Innocence of Muslims” from the YouTube video-sharing service in Malaysia since late yesterday, following complaints from regulator Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) about the clip that has sparked violent protests across the Muslim world as it insults Prophet Muhammad.
The Malaysian Insider learnt that the MCMC had cited section 298A (1) of the Penal Code in its complaint to the world’s leading search engine that owns the YouTube site. Both Google and YouTube have local sites in Malaysia, which has a nearly 70 per cent broadband penetration and a major market for video-sharing sites.
