After clear discrimination of Facebook for not banning blasphemous Fan Page, Ministry of Information Technology and Telecom has directed PTA to ban Facebook Page in Pakistan, told us sources close to authority.

A reliable source, who is in direct contact with Secretary MoIT, told ProPakistani that ministry has issued the directive to PTA to ban said blasphemous content in the country.

Ministry of Information Technology directs PTA for banning any URL or whole of website in case of any inappropriate content available on it.

It is yet to be ascertained if the whole Facebook will be banned or just a single URL will be filtered. In both the situations, Step is inline with thousands of Facebook users and according to their urge of boycotting Facebook on May 20th.

It merits mentioning here that a Fan Page on Facebook is encouraging its members to draw Prophet Mohammad’s drawings (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa-aal-hi-Wasallam).

Despite thousands of requests, Facebook didn’t put this page down even it violated Facebook’s own terms of services.

Update: (3:14 PM – May 18, 2010) We have received confirmation from PTA that directive has been issued to all ISPs for blocking a single URL (of the particular Fan Page). Order was issued by Yawar Yasin, Director Enforcement PTA.

PTCL has confirmed the recipient of the order and said that specific URL is in process of being blocked throughout its network.

Update: (8:24 PM – May 18, 2010) Facebook fan page in question is still opening on various ISPs, however, reports are coming that specific URL is inaccessible on selected ISPs. Complete blackout is expected later tonight.

    Facebook are the live example and Pandora’s box of all evils retaliated by so-called literates and moderate people, who are sick, pessimist and are narrow-minded from inside. They are basically worshippers of Evil, they even didnt follow their religion, as no religion allow to humiliate the Prophet, the finest human beings of the earth.

    By making sketches of the whole universe pious and respectful man, making a film on him, distorting his image.

    What the damn its been called ‘freedom of expression’? like hurting anyone’s faith and targeting his belief is freedom, it all non-sense and ill-mindedness.

    Have any Muslim in the world having 1.2 billion in population ever burnt bible or any other holy book? never, beacause we cannot become a true Muslim if we have faith on the other prophets who brought holy books, hebrew Bible, Tawrat (Torah), Injil (Gospel), Zaboor (even sum of these books, like New testament are not in its original form today), we also firm belief on Jesus and Moses.

    Than how can we branded as fundamentalist or extrement or worst terrorist than?

    we have millions of ppl with names of Eisa, Moses (Mosa A.S), but nobody have ever heard that any christian or jewish taking name Muhammad?

    Think about it…

    Face book should ban the groups which are about religions so that such thing will never happen again but i think banning complete face book would be more beneficial rather then just banning such things otherwise non-Muslims will find some other ways to disturb Muslims.The face book will suffer huge lose just because of this.


    i think in Pakistan facebook should completly banned . PTA should take special initiatives on this matter.

    Any Muslime who read Kalma cant tolrate thses attitudes from anybody, and we as Muslim have the same respect for all the NABIS and PROPHETS, but its our weakness that who wants to make fun of our religion, can do ……. And what is our reaction???? Just banned that typical URL, that website for sometime or forever .only? Is the remedy? Cant we talk with them on equal level, cant we inquire about that . we are scared people, thats why jews and all other rule on Muslims….. Why cant our government talk to the authorities, WHY? what happened with ban? People already dont sign up Face book, so what we do on govt level, being a Muslim why dont our govt has courage to talk with the FB authorities …. Banned is nothing.. Why cant we stop them? Why we Muslims are scared of… Because we all forget ISLAM. its all just a propaganda Demo, we from inside are weak, we from inside just think about ourselves only , what is Islam, what is his value, what is the meaning of life , we all forget……. On one side we ban the FB and on the other side we read, we listen we dance, we drink , we do all that which is prohibited in Islam. but for a propaganda we come out and show our double personalities…. baN IS NOTHING, WE NEED CHANGE IN OURSELVES ONLY, WHEN WE WILL BE MUSLIMS, TRUE MUSLIMS, BELIEVE ME NO ONE CAN NAME OUR PROPHET IN BAD WAYS, NO ONE CAN ABUSE OUR RELIGION. JUST TO MAKE YOURSELF A MUSLIM ONLY….
