Speaking about the vital need of Torrent, Songs.pk in context of Net Neutrality

Mr. Yadav said that earlier he didn’t knew about this whole net neutrality thing which everybody was speaking about, so he immediately downloaded a feature on it to dig deeper into the issue. After seeing the documentary downloaded from torrent he realized that removal of net neutrality can mean that he might have to pay for torrent downloads and songs.pk downloads, something which is totally unacceptable for him and hence he took this stand.

While making his statement media personals observed that he was constantly checking time remaining in download completion of MSG – Messenger of God, in his torrent client. He said that since everybody in his party was praising the movie so he decided that he should download and see it for himself.
