Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia takes down its edit bar for ‘Calibri’ font after many Pakistanis were trying to change its release date.

Earlier, the ‘Calibri’ controversy began after the report of Joint Investigation Team (JIT). Daughter of Prime Minister, Maryam Nawaz has submitted proof regarding the offshore companies. It was found by the investigation team that font used in the declaration was written in Microsoft’s default font ‘Calibri’ while it was claimed by JIT that the font was not available commercially since January 2007.

After the declaration of ruling family as guilty by the Supreme Court of Pakistan, about 35 revisions were made to the release date of font. However, Wikipedia has disabled the edit option for font on their page. The page has protected the editing of font till July 18.
