Recenty Pakistan banned the Facebook over the Draw A Mohammad Day page controversial issue. It involved an opposition group that invited people to draw Mohammad`s cartoons and play against Muslim`s emotions. The controversial group encouraged the people who could submit their name along with the cartoon and regarded them as brave.
This is what Muslim community has to say:
We love Peace and Happiness but not at cost of our BELOVED PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SALLALAH-O-ALIHI WASSALAM).
Currently if someone in Pakistan tries to access Facebook.com, they encounter a message saying “ The site is restricted”.
On Tuesday, six young IT professionals from Lahore launched millatfacebook which will not only serve the purpose of staying in touch with family and friends but will also serve as a platform for Muslim`s to serve against blasphemy.
As of now, about 5000 users have signed up with over 1500 photos uploaded. Mostly these people are from Pakistan. Currently the site stands nowhere as compared to Facebook, thought it has some similar features like wall, findfriends, etc. The inclusion of Facebook like apps in Millatfacebook will take some substantial amount of time.
Millatfacebook has some interesting features as well. One of it is Photo Battle which allows you to view random photos of other members and decide the best of the lot. It also has ‘featured members tab’ and ‘top rated members’
The front page of Millatfacebook encourages all the religion and caste to join it`s community. It says
Millatfacebook helps you connect and share with more than 1.57 Billion Muslims and Sweet people from other Religions
