Earlier in the day, the Lahore High Court ordered authorities to block Facebook until May 31. Controversy erupted in the conservative Muslim country last month when a Facebook “user” set up a page called “Draw Mohammed Day”, inviting people to send in their caricatures of the Muslim prophet on May 20.
Personally I think this issue is not that critical and important as our people and government is trying to shape it, one could easily find cartoons of prophets and religious leaders over internet and it is trusted medium of sick-minded people to hurt people or satisfy their racist souls but surprisingly our people ignited and they actually helped them achieve their goal by making that group more popular and known over print media and internet. By blocking more than three hundred websites including Flickr, Youtube and world’s biggest online and most trusted encyclopedia, our people have proved that we still favor Zia policies, where government treat people like slaves to impose religious restrictions. None of the website actually invites you to watch inappropriate material; it is the user who searches out things from a buffet of data. You can search and browse pornography and religious verses over the same internet connection, but blocking internet main web portals just for the sake of your opinions is not a mature step. (Yes opinions because most of those protesting over roads about facebook might not have used internet in their life).
One could easily hear cursing prayers for those who had drawn sketches of last prophet, they use all the hated speech which he could use to take out frustration for non-Muslims but is this religion has taught us to behave in general; did Muhammad p.b.u.h curse for those who made him bleed for fun? Did Abraham and Jesus p.b.u.h curse those who tortured them for the sake of religion? No, it is not allowed to curse, disgrace or humiliate even a sinner because in doing so, one helps the Satan, who is avowed to disgrace and humiliate Muslims before God.
Well today we should think that how we have portrayed our prophet in front of the World, instead of appreciating his noble qualities, his love for humanity and creatures of God, we love to talk and write about his opinion about War and Jihad, we might have never heard about a single thing about bedroom life of previous prophets p.b.u.t, but we always give references about last prophet’s marriages and you can read a dozen of books with detailed descriptions about his martial life and things which should not be published about a holy personality. People like Shezad who call themselves righteous one represents Islamic ideology for none Muslims, they think that religion can be imposed with force but history has proved that religion can survive only with love and tolerance. Our political leaders, religious leaders and official actors like Zaid Hamid (a man who love to live in a fantasy world) had badly damaged our religious culture and concepts and they all interpreted Islam as a political party more than a religion.
