On May 21st Pakistani authorities had banned Facebook, Twitter & YouTube! The crackdown began after the Pakistan High Court issued an order for blocking Facebook over a page hosting a contest for blasphemous caricatures of Prophet Mohammad. 500 people participated in a protest against Facebook for holding competitions of drawing caricatures of Prophet Muhammad. They have blocked these sites citing “sacrilegious contents” on the internet.
So here is what few Pakistani IT professionals who launched www.millatfacebook.com earlier this week!
Millatfacebook is Pakistan’s first social networking site.
Currently the site offers email, photo, video, chat and discussion board facilities. And they say they working on more features to make it like the real Mark Zuckerberg’s FaceBook!
