The Jammu and Kashmir state government has approached the union government to block anti-Islam videos which are currently posted on YouTube and other social networking sites.

"The government is making every effort to ensure that such video clips carrying blasphemous content are blocked and removed from the cyberspace," said an official statement issued late last evening.

"We have asked Central government to block the 'Innocence of Muslims' video on YouTube, as it can cause law and order problem in the state," said home commissioner BR Sharma.

Exactly two-year back in Sept 2010 the State government had then also asked the Centre to block posting on social sites the burning of Holy Quran by pastor John Terry which resulted in large scale violence across the State in which 10 people were killed.

Sharma said John Terry might be now also be involved in posting of these videos.

A government spokesperson said: "the state govt strongly denounces this desecrating act, as such acts are aimed at causing discord among the people of different faiths."

Such video clips cause great anguish among the peace loving citizens and posting of such video clips on social media and other networking sites is not acceptable in any society.
