I'm glad that you brought that up, because I saw that video also, and I
said to myself "Wait... WHAT?? The Government of Pakistan has decided
to wage war on the global RIR system?? Ha! I wish them luck with that.
Maybe they can start their own intranet, like Russia."
P.S. Checking Google News it appears that the only even somewhat recent
-actual- news relating to Pakistan & the Internet is from about 3 weeks
ago and it was just that the Pakistan government shut down the Internet
in Pakistan on account of anti-government riots.
Somehow I don't think this is relevant to -either- AFRINIC or to the global
system for allocating IP address space.
In short, the video would seem to be spreading deliberate disinformation.
(There's a lot of that going around, including here in the USA. In fact
we here are pioneering whole new categories of disinformation!)
