hard to trust media reports these days.

The announcement was made on Monday, March 19, by National Assembly member Bushra Gohar in a statement to The Express Tribune newspaper.

According to Gohar, “Secretary of Information Technology Farooq Ahmed Awan said to me that the URL project has been withdrawn due to the concern shown by various stakeholders.” A formal statement on the project is expected to be issued today--the Pakistani Ministry of Information Technology has neither confirmed nor denied Gohar's statement as of press time.
