Facebook Unbanned By Pakistani Court, Facebook To Respect Islam!

31 May, 2010

Some dude who started around 2 weeks ago a fan page competition for Drawing Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him has sparked anger among Muslims and managed to have Pakistan to block Facebook, youtube and other 450 Web links for carrying objectionable material.

But today a Pakistani court ordered the government to left a ban on Facebook,after Facebook “assured the court no blasphemous material will be available to users in Pakistan.” According to bloomberg.

Facebook “had exchanges with Richard Holbrooke, U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan” Chaudhry Zulfiqar, told Bloomberg.

Startupmeme a famous Pakistani blog about startups and social media called this day a “Let May 31 Go Down As D-Day In Pakistan’s History [BS]” , Startupmeme writer asked before  facebook to delete the fanpage because is it against it terms of service (TOS).

In Islam creating images of the Prophet is prohibited and considered a great insult.

Facebook has been some how respectful to Muslim feelings, they deleted before a fanpage in Arabic for a couple of Guys claiming them selves as “Allah” ( Allah: means one God in Arabic)

    Should all Muslims leave Facebook and join Millat Facebook?

    Yes, ofcourse No doubt about it. And not only just Muslims all the decent people of all faiths should. Let me explain you:

    Whichever way you look at it be it from Islamic perspective, legally, socially or ethically it’s not possible for a decent person to find any reason to remain associated with a hate-mongering, Islamophobic and fascist FB.


    * Islam RESPECTS all the Prophets and the Holy Books.
    * It is ordered not to defame the God’s of ANY religion

    * Islam tolerates the criticism on Islam and discusses any objections.

    * But as far as any ridicule of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is concerned, the rule is clear ……. FINISH OFF THE “FITNAH” (Cause of unrest) ………………..
    * It is a long reasoning as to the reasons for the order, which are beyond the scope of this discussion.


    * In all international laws there are defamation clauses.
    * No-one has a right to defame anyone on the pretext of Freedom of expression.
    * Than how can defaming the most revered personality for over 25% of the population of the world all over the globe, be termed legal in any way, whatsoever?


    * If our Mum/Dad and/or entire family is ridiculed, abused and their defamatory and dirty pictures are posted by a large store REGULARLY, WOULD WE EVER GO THERE?? …….. NO ……. No decent person would ever go there.
    * Would any of us visit a place known to promote social unrest and/or racism directed at any community? Again No ……… no decent person would.
    * Prophet Muhammad (Saww) is more than the families and their own lives for over 1.57 Billion Muslims around the globe.


    * Would one ever go to or let their loved ones go to a place that is known to be abusive and involved in Hate-Campaigns? ……………NO. None of us would.
    * How can we than even think of going to or supporting the HATE-MONGERING and RACIST FB???????
