Why are 3d printers banned in pakistan? (Explained)

Today I’ll be explaining why 3d printers are banned in Pakistan.

Why are 3d printers banned in pakistan?

They’re banned in Pakistan because they may be used to make weapons. And when applying it to that country, it could prove to be a threat to National security.

Threat to National security

National security’s been a focus for Pakistan, and there’s been situations that made it the right one.

For example, there was an incident known as the Murree tragedy in which 22 people froze to death in their vehicles.

Granted, it was only a snow incident, there’s been moments of violence that justifies their decision about 3d printers.

The most common crimes in Pakistan range from drug trafficking, extortion, ransom, and even political violence.

I want to take a moment to focus on the political violence.

The politics in their country deal with the dangers that Pakistan has been fighting for years now.

Active terrorist groups, security forces, and extremist attacks on it’s citizens.

With technology like 3D printing, and if it were to be put in the wrong hands, it could spell doom for the country and it’s citizens.

As you can see, it’s incredibly easy to make guns with these printers.

There’s actually situations where if there’s a 3d printer being used in the country, you have to have a certificate of use to even have it.
