Draw Muhammad Day wasn't taken lightly by Muslims all over the world. So much so that Pakistan has banned Facebook for 10 days. Mark Zuckerberg gets paid like $28 for each user, Pakistan has millions of users, big loss for Zuckerberg. Poor facebook addicts- they must be going crazy. :p: I appreciate the stand taken by the Pakistani courts though. What do you think?

Disagree. But, their crazy ass country, their choice.

“The judge also directed Pakistan's foreign ministry to raise the issue at international level”

:lolwut: Seriously? That foreign Minster is going to look like a joke.

Here is the source for those who want it:

This is an outrageous and quite laughable affront to the liberties of Pakistani citizens.

I doubt you'd be saying the same if you were a Muslim.

Oh no, you have no Facebook.
You can't stalk someone for 10 days, or poke someone, or like someone's status, or add randomers ... oh no, what will you do ...

Ah yeh .. but 95% are ... hmm
Not surprising though is it that they banned it, you'd have done the same to make a stand against something you didn't agree with.

I don't think censorship is cool.

Lighten up, religion is just as open to criticism and satire as anything else.
