jitendraharlalka writes with this excerpt from Al Jazeera English: “A Pakistani court has issued a ban on the social networking site Facebook after a user-generated contest page encouraged members to post caricatures of Prophet Mohammed. The Lahore High Court on Wednesday instructed the Pakistani Telecommunications Authority (PTA) to ban the site after the Islamic Lawyers Movement complained that a page called ‘Draw Mohammed Day’ is blasphemous. … ‘We have already blocked the URL link and issued instruction to internet service providers,’ Khurram Mehran, a spokesperson for the PTA, said.”
