Petition to BAN Facebook in Pakistan

  Is Facebook being an uncontrolled menace? Well, Lahore High Court feels so, and is likely to Ban Facebook in Pakistan. Justice Azmat Saeed passed the order on a petition seeking a permanent ban on Facebook in Pakistan for holding a contest called the 2nd Annual Draw Muhammad Day. Justice Azmat Saeed passed the order on a petition seeking a permanent ban on Facebook in Pakistan for holding a contest called the 2nd Annual Draw Muhammad Day.
  He said that Facebook and similar websites should be permanently blocked for placing caricatures of the Holy Prophet and other prophets. The petitioner said that the contest, scheduled for May 20, was the evidence of international mischief against Islam.

  After hearing the petitioner’s arguments, the court observed that disrespect to the Holy Prophet will not be allowed at any cost. Facebook had earlier generated much controversy when a single cartoonist Molly Norris had announced a contest to sketch caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in May 2010. The sponsors had later apologised and cancelled the contest.
  This incident has rigged up Tweeters to make comic tweets regarding this issue.
