Facebook Banned in Pakistan

Facebook Banned Notice
Facebook Banned Notice in Pakistan

In a sad news Facebook is banned in Pakistan as ordered by Pakistan government. Pakistani government issued a notice to Internet providers to ban Facebook. This ban was a result of a Fan page in Facebook which is letting users to upload images of Prophet Muhammad.

As Islam prohibits any images of Prophet Muhammad, after few islamic lawyers won a court order, government was left with no other choice other than banning this social networking website in Pakistan.

The Facebook page named “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” was encouraging users to draw the images of Prophet Mohammad and that resulted in this fiasco.


Though it’s not clear how long this ban is going to be, but I’m certainly going to miss chatting with my friends across the border. Do let us know what do you feel about this reaction?
