"Time and time again, we have witnessed in the past how censorship and filtering backed by religious reasons has eventually served political interests only," the organization said in a statement on Tuesday.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said last week that the U.S. government did not have anything to do with the video, but that the U.S. does not and cannot stop individual citizens from expressing their views.

The video was filmed in the U.S. by a person, or people, whose identity has yet to be established, according to some reports.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the block of YouTube in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
