No ban of Net access to WikiLeaks in Pakistan

Reportedly, a Pakistani court has dismissed a petition to ban Internet access to WikiLeaks while a high-power Cabinet committee has called the purported revelations in the WikiLeaks "a conspiracy" against the Muslim-majority republic that has been heavily criticised in America's diplomatic cables released into the cyberspace without any clearance. Meanwhile, India' s official response remains restrained or measured as the world reputation of India is not hit as hard as that of Pakistan. One very serious security concern is that the many elusive 'non-state actors ' in this as well as the Middle Eastern region would act on their own interpretations of the leaked materials or/and the news reports, at times and in places of their choosing in months and years to come.
