    the services of the country's spy agency will be used basically to
    check and curb blasphemous and obscene websites on the Internet.  "The
    regulator, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), has
    assigned 14 LDIs, including PTCL, to install this monitoring
    equipment," senior executive vice president of the Pakistan
