Most Muslim nations have blocked YouTube because of a controversial islamaphobic Trailer for a movie called “The innocence of Muslims” YouTube has failed to take it down. It was unblocked after the video was taken down.

There is no reason why it was banned in Turkmenistan, but some point to the fact that a video of the president of Turkmenistan’s was falling off a horse.

Despite these reasonings, there are multiple government run channels, most prominent in Iran and North Korea, that are up today.
