Pakistan blocked Facebook, Youtube, Flickr, etc.

On 19th May 2010, Pakistani government got active against the drawings of Muslims last prophet Muhammad (pbuh) over the Internet. Molly Norris initially started this issue and Muslims were already angry at the Danish cartoonist who drew photos of Muhammad (pbuh) and later the very famous cartoon series South Park targeted the hearts of Muslims around the world.

Initially Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) censored the specific facebook links to the pages related to “20th May Everybody Draw Muhamed Day”, but later Lahore High Court of Pakistan released an order to block the entire facebook social networking website.

[ad#ad-taalz-inpost-right]The next day PTA blocked youtube, flickr, Molly Norris blog, and censored pages over Wikipedia, and other related websites which were involved in the event. Molly Norris appologised to all the Muslims around the world saying that she only created the cartoon for South Park and which was also censored, and she never declared 20th May as “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day”.

“I never started a facebook page; I never set up any place for pepole to send drawings to and I never received any drawings (I see that two European graduate students and another woman started the facebook pages)”, Molly.

She further added that she appologise all Muslims for doing what she did.

“I apologize to people of Muslim faith and ask that this ‘day’ be called off.”, Molly.
