Lahore High Court Orders to Open Facebook in Pakistan

Today, Lahore High Court on Monday morning, 31st May, 2010; ordered to lift the ban from the social networking sites like Facebook, Flicker, Youtube, Wikipedia. These sites was banned 21st May 2010 for the blasphemous content, specially in particular to the “Draw Muhammad Day’ contest being held 20 May on facebook. As the reaction of this contest Lahore High Court ordered to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to ban the all social networking sites who is against Islam.

Masses though supported the ban on the facebook whereas country’s top bloggers criticized the concept of e-censorship and condemned this as usurp of the rights. A recent survey carried out by one of the local sites and also reported on Geo tv showed that 70% of the total population participated in the survey, favored a permanent ban on Facebook.

Facebook administration has also been told that the content they showed on their website is a crime according to Pakistani laws,” he said. “Facebook officials have agreed to refrain from posting such content in the future.”

Islamic Lawyers Forum opposed opening Facebook, but Justice Aijaz Chaudhry said that if such a thing happens again, it will be banned.

The court has summoned a reply from the government regarding filing a case against Facebook owners. We hope that facebook never allow to other people that nonsense contest again.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  9. Onita Wellspeak says:

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
