I have heard much about Pakistani genius in computer science, but I wonder why they are lagging behind in hacking of such dirty works websites? Turks won.
Congrats and Salute to The Turkish Genius.

Facebook upset over Pakistan ban due to Prophet Mohammed contest page
correspondents in Washington * From: AFP
May 20, 2010 2: 09PM

FACEBOOK is disappointed at being blocked in Pakistan over a contest that encourages users to post caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed and may make the offending page inaccessible to users there, the social network said today.

"We are very disappointed with the Pakistani courts' decision to block Facebook without warning, and suspect our users there feel the same way," Facebook said.

"We are analysing the situation and the legal considerations, and will take appropriate action, which may include making this content inaccessible to users in Pakistan," it said.

Pakistan blocked access to Facebook on a court order over a competition created by a Facebook user who set up a page called "Draw Mohammed Day", inviting people to send in caricatures of the Muslim prophet on May 20.
Islam strictly prohibits depictions of Prophet Mohammed as blasphemous and Muslims around the world staged angry protests over the publication of satirical cartoons of the prophet in European newspapers in 2006.

The statement from the Palo Alto, California-based social network said "we want Facebook to be a place where people can openly discuss issues and express their views, while respecting the rights and feelings of others.

"With now more than 400 million users from around the world ... we sometimes find people discussing and posting about topics that others may find controversial, inaccurate, or offensive," it said.

"While some kinds of comments and content may be upsetting for someone - criticism of a certain culture, country, religion, lifestyle, or political ideology, for example - that alone is not a reason to remove the discussion," it said.

"We strongly believe that Facebook users have the freedom to express their opinions, and we don't typically take down content, groups or pages that speak out against countries, religions, political entities, or ideas."

The statement noted that "Nazi content is illegal in some countries" but said "that does not mean it should be removed entirely from Facebook".

"Most companies approach this issue by preventing certain content from being shown to users in the countries where it is illegal and that is our approach as well," it added

facebook is sounding stubborn. lets see.

This February, YouTube was temporarily blocked for almost an hour. Once service had been restored, internet users in Pakistan discovered that the video that had been blocked was of President Asif Ali Zardari allegedly screaming ‘shut up' to someone while addressing a crowd.
shameful,not taking action against such act but took action for own videos.wake up

Default Molly norris apologises to all muslims

This is the most recent statement by Molly Norris, the female cartoonist behind the blasphemous page. It can be viewed on her official website.
I did NOT 'declare' May 20 to be "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day." I made a cartoon about the television show South Park being censored. (I wish that was what our energies were going toward -- protesting revolutionmuslim.com's threat to Comedy Central, and Comedy Central's over reaction to it which set America on a slippery slope toward censorship!)

At any rate, my satirical poster, with a fake 'group' behind it (Citizens Against Citizens Against Humor) was taken seriously, hijacked and made viral.

I never started a facebook page; I never set up any place for pepole to send drawings to and I never recieved any drawings (I see that the two men and one woman who started the different fb pages names have now been made public).

My one-off cartoon does not work well as a long-term plan. The vitriol this 'day' has brought out, of people who only want to draw obscene images, is offensive to Muslims who did nothing to endanger our right to expression in the first place. Only Viacom and Revolution Muslim are to blame, so...draw them instead!

I apologize to people of Muslim faith and ask that this 'day' be called off.

Thank you to those who are turning this crazy thing into an opportunity for dialogue.

Oh, and screw all of you who are mad at me for not leading a 'movement'. My cartoon was the beginning and end of what I had to say about this creepy, historic censorship. (By the way, where is Cowardly Central now? Pretty dang quiet. Guess they can dish it out but can't take it.)

Sincerely,
Molly

P.S. The nicest email I have received have been from Muslims.

(I regret going on the Dave Ross radio show on April 25th, before my cartoon went viral; my ego took me there. It was a mistake to go there when I wasn't clear about things. I let myself get side-swiped. Crap!)
"My cartoon was the beginning and end of expressing my personal views about Comedy Central's South Park censorship. If I had wanted my one-off cartoon to be the basis for a worldwide movement to draw Mohammed, then at this moment I should be thrilled," Norris tells Comic Riffs today. "But instead I am horrified! My one-off cartoon that was specifically about Comedy Central's behaviour vs. Revolution Muslim's threat leading to a slippery slope of censorship in America is not good for a long-term plan. The results have shown to be vitriolic and worse, offensive to Muslims who had nothing to do with the censorship issue I was inspired to draw about in the first place." Molly

Pakistan raises facebook cartoons issue at OIC moot
Thursday, May 20, 2010
By Mariana Baabar

ISLAMABAD: As the Lahore High Court banned the Facebook website which was carrying blasphemous cartoons, the sentiments of the Muslims were echoed by Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Nawabzada Malik Amad Khan, who condemned the rise of the insidious trend of Islamophobia in the recent past.

Speaking at the 37th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers in Dushanbe, the minister said, “Political dividends reaped by Dutch extremist Geert Wilders in regional elections is encouraging extremists in other countries to resort to Islam bashing in election campaigns. Negative stereotyping of the Muslims and defamation of Islam have become fashionable under the pretext of freedom of expression.

“Following the ban on construction of minarets of mosques in Switzerland, a Swedish radical party has published appalling and outrageous posters of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). We strongly condemn these sacrilegious posters. It has gravely hurt the Muslim sentiments throughout the world”.He said, as the second largest inter-governmental organisation, the OIC needs to play a more active role in the reform of the United Nations as well as the UN Security Council.

“We must ensure adequate representation of the OIC member states in any category of membership in an expanded Security Council. “We appreciate the efforts by the OIC working groups on Human Rights in New York and Geneva in support of the resolution on Combating Defamation of Religions. The OIC needs to follow a two-pronged strategy of closer interaction with the West to address the phenomenon of Islamophobia and defamation of Islam and to develop a united approach within the OIC member states on this sensitive issue,” he added. Commenting on sufferings at the hands of terrorists, the minister said, “Terrorism is the most serious challenge confronting us all today. Misguided people, in the name of religion, are killing innocent men, women and children in mosques, schools, hospitals and market places. These criminals do not represent our noble faith. We will not allow them to hijack our faith and societies”.

He added that as a frontline state in the ongoing struggle against terrorism, Pakistan has suffered enormously both in terms of human lives and material. “Our more than 2,500 brave security personnel have sacrificed their lives to make the world safer for us and our children. Over 10,000 civilians have fallen victim to brutalities of terrorists.

Besides, we have suffered economic losses of more than $35 billion. All this has strengthened our resolve to root out this menace from our territory and the region at large”, he added.Pakistan, he stressed, was fully conscious that use of military force was not the enduring solution to the problem of terrorism. The Government of Pakistan, therefore, has evolved a 3-D strategy comprising dialogue, development and deterrence to comprehensively deal with this scourge.

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean they go around bulldozing others and harming their feelings with offensive ideas and actions. Say something about holocaust and the hollow slogan of freedom of speech goes out of the window. They are willing to abuse Islam in the way they feel like. Let us see, if facebook is unblocked, I will show practically to you people whether there is full guarantee of freedom of expression in facebook or not.

Government of Pakistan as a responsible Islamic country could have convened conference of Islamic countries not only on this issue but also on the problems faced by Muslim Ummah in the recent age. But here is a problem, we are enlightened nation, we can’t displease the West. You people know we are not conservative to rise objections on such issues. About rich Arab countries, perhaps they don’t have time to come out of their hotel worth 8 billion dollars – Burj e Khalifa, they are in the deserts of Pakistan and enjoying life, so they should not be disturbed.

By the way where are Peer and Murshid, Mr. PM and Foreign Minister.

-----------------------------------

Indonesia’s Communications and Information Technology Ministry is set to send a letter to the management of social networking site Facebook in protest of a group encouraging the posting of Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

Communications and Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring said Wednesday that the Indonesian government was not merely calling for Facebook to remove the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” group’s account, but also to prevent the appearance of other similar groups.

As of Wednesday evening, more than 41,300 people liked the group, and others with similar purposes have been created, including “can a million people draw Mohammed before i’m killed for this group?” and “Draw the Prophet Muhammad Group!”

Full Story

------------------------



I did NOT 'declare' May 20 to be "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day." I made a cartoon about the television show South Park being censored. (I wish that was what our energies were going toward -- protesting revolutionmuslim.com's threat to Comedy Central, and Comedy Central's over reaction to it which set America on a slippery slope toward censorship!)

I wrote an email to PTA and they quickly responded and blocked a questionable website. You should also inform them about such contents.
