Pakistan Telecommunications Authority has blocked Facebook as a result of the public outrage towards the Facebook group “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day – May 20”. The public outrage is due to the fact that in the Islamic faith, images of the prophet Mohammad are blasphemous. Approximately 95% of Pakistanis are Muslim, and as the article describes, the country has a population of 170 million, 20 million of which are Internet users.
