Random Thoughts on Facebook ban

1- Hey hey, Boycott Facebook on 20th May 2010 against International Competition of Drawing Sketches of our beloved MUHAMMAD (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa-aal-hi-Wasallam) …blah blah blah

Why boycotting Facebook on 20th only, why not at all?  If you really love your prophet and you think FB’s running Anti Muslim campaign, can’t you simply delete FB account and get rid of this nuisance once and for all?

2- Social networking websites Facebook and You Tube have been banned in Pakistan over non-Islamic images depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

Whoaa, Jazak Allah! Pakistan Zindabad, Islam Zindabad!

And what about Youporn.com and hundreds of thousands of porn sites, did they ban them too? or is pornography allowed in Pakistan’s Islam?

3- Lawyers across the country on Thursday observed complete strike and boycotted court proceedings to record their protest against the competition of blasphemous caricatures being carried out on Facebook.

Eh? Lawyers, Boycotted courts!? WTF?!!!!

4- Dude, FB used to generate millons of dollars from Pakistani advertisements, now they must bear losses! Hahaha Good Job PTA!

Really ? You know their revenue will get double in non Muslim world against this particular publicity stunt!

They got what they wanted to — Used Muslim outcry to make money from bigger markets! now more people across the world would be hitting caricature page and help FB multiply their profits and that’s just because of your nonsensical brouhaha!

5- I can still use FB via proxy, Your friend’s genius! ; )

Whatttttt?  but just yesterday you were backing PTA ban on FB, what was that ?

Mate,  you’re not genius, you’re bloody hypocrite!!!

6- We have asked the Internet service providers to block more than 450 web links, which contain derogatory material,” a PTA spokesman said.

But internet is full of  this BS, how will you block rest of the 10 millions websites that contain such material ?

Why don’t you completely ban internet ?

7-  It’s a jew conspiracy, I will slaughter those infidels!!!

Just because they drew caricature of prophet you will slaughter ALL infidels ? What did your prophet do when people of Taif pelted stones on him, how did he treat that old woman who used to throw garbage on him ?

8- By the way what does  PTA stand for ?

Pakistan Tele-Ban Authority.

      1. Yes after reading your thoughts, i am sure we are hypocrite as one hypocrite can understand others.

    1. Sara,

      So protesting against Blasphemy is f*king ourselves? So if someone protest against vulgar content –, he is F*king himself?

  1. Interesting thoughts!
    I am receiving almost 5-10 text messages about Facebook these days and I am sure that same people would be using fb when the ban will remove.

  2. FB and youtube are the same webs where one can find interesting gruops and links regarding Islam and Prophet (PBUH) …………….if we can find propaganda …. we can also find authentic facts about Islam …………….. if some nations are using it agaisnt simaltaneously we can use it for Islam ……………… focus should be on how we use it rather than how others are using it.

  3. Once there was a man who most of the time remained drunk. He had 1000 reasons in favour of Alcohol…… just because he did not have courage to leave Alcohol……

  4. “They {Muhammad’s critics} see fire instead of light, ugliness instead of good. It reflects their own depravity.The critics are blind. They cannot see that the only sword’ Muhammad wielded was the sword of mercy, compassion, friendship and forgiveness – the sword that conquers enemies and purifies their hearts. His sword was sharper than the sword of steel.”

    Pandit Gyanandra Dev Sharma Shastri,at a meeting in Gorakhpur lndia 1928

    Found this while browsing youtube ……..its about how we use it ….. I prefere to look glass half full ….. !

  5. You have very nicely written down the most common arguments about the issue and the element of overwhelming hypocrisy. Actually, we are confused. I know we all can live without Facebook for 15 days, not that we will die literally, but just that we feel the urge to counter everything!

    They draw, we counter, they ban, we counter, they dont ban, we counter.

    But just for your argument:

    “7- It’s a jew conspiracy, I will slaughter those infidels!!!
    Just because they drew caricature of prophet you will slaughter ALL infidels ? What did your prophet do when people of Taif pelted stones on him, how did he treat that old woman who used to throw garbage on him?”

    I don’t think its a valid argument, you can CHOOSE to revenge someone who insults you in person, but cannot make a choice when its about insulting someone else, especially the Prophet PBUH. Being muslims, its our prime responsibility to act upon it, only that right now we don’t know how to act in the right! direction..!

      Well said, I have even seen lots of educated people(including Amir Liaquat Hussain) who believe in violent revenge, though they cannot even touch those blasphemous, I believe OIC should device a strategy to cope blasphemy which should be implemented in all Muslim countries. Product boycotts or banning sites might be a good idea .

  6. Guys, wateva u say but the trick actually worked (cheap publicity)…. today when its once again opened the user’s if not doubled but the accounts have actually increases with gud nos. It got wat it was meant for….word of mouth, TV channels, radio, etc etc etc. Not only in Pak but Internationally also the news spread like fire that Pak has banned FB and every1 was actually talking bout it…

    PTA owe big commissions from FB.

  7. I have read a few posts on this topic on Pakistani blogs. Comparing these posts with a discussions that was going on a non Muslim forum has really confused me.
    Its really hard to see the difference between the westerners and the westernized.
    Islam is the victim on both sides.
    These also remind me what Dr. Iqbal said, (if I remember well)
    “Haq se hai gar gharz tau zeba hai kia yeh baat
    Islam ka muhasba, Europe se darguzar.”

    “Ho fikr agar haam tau azaad-e-izhaar,
    Insaan ko haiwan bananay ka tareeqa”

    Why Islam is the only victim everywhere?
