It is being reported that Google has banned hundreds and thousands of Pakistani adsense publisher accounts in last two days without any appropriate reason. This isn’t confirmed but the survey around tells the story. Almost all publishers who got their accounts banned, received the following dreadful account disabled email:
We continually review all publishers according to our program policies (https://www.google.com/upport/adsense/bin/answer.py?
answer=48182&stc=aspe-3pp-en) and Terms and Conditions (https://www.google.com/ adsense/localized-terms?&stc= aspe-3tc-en ). During a recent review of your account, our specialists found that it was not in compliance with our policies.
LAYOUT ENCOURAGES ACCIDENTAL CLICKS: Publishers are not permitted to encourage users to click on Google ads in any way. This includes any implementation that may encourage accidental clicks, such as placing ads near flash games or navigation bars, or placing ads and site links extremely close together.
WEBMASTER GUIDELINES: Our program specialists regularly review sites in the AdSense program.
It is important for a site displaying AdSense to offer significant value to the end user by providing unique and relevant content, and not to place ads on sites with little to no original content. Additionally, Google ads
may not be placed on non-content-based pages.
Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they are seeking.
Because your sites violate the spirit of our policies, we have disabled ad serving.For more information, please review our program policies (https://www.google.com/
adsense/support/as/bin/answer. py?answer=48182 ) and Google’s Webmaster Quality Guidelines (http://www.google.com/support/ webmasters/bin/answer.py? answer=35769#quality).
As stated in our program policies, sites displaying Google ads should provide substantial and useful information to the user. Users should be able to easily navigate through the site to find what products, goods, or services are promised.
While reviewing your site, our team of specialists determined that it does not comply with the spirit of these guidelines.
As a result, your AdSense account has been disabled.Additionally, as stated in our Terms and Conditions, publishers who have breached this agreement may not receive further payment. The earnings on your account will be returned to the affected advertisers. Please note that this step was taken in an effort to protect the interests of our AdWords advertisers, and to maintain the quality of the AdSense program.
Thank you for your understanding.

I am not sure if Pakistani publishers are targeted or they really violated Adsense TOS. But I wonder why Google would do this anyway? Share your views in the comment section below.
