Draw Mohammad Day page took down on Facebook

Pin It "Draw Mohammad Day" page took down on Facebook

SAN FRANCISCO (May 22 2010): A Facebook page that fuelled rage and protest in Pakistan was gone from the popular online social networking service on Friday. The Facebook user that organised an "Everyone Draw Mohammed Day" competition to promote "freedom of expression" evidently took down the page along with a separate blog about the campaign.

"Facebook has not taken any action on this page," the California-based social networking titan said after reporting the page was gone. The disappearance of the page came as protesters in Pakistan shouted "Death to Facebook," "Death to America" and burnt US flags, venting growing anger over "sacrilegious" caricatures of Hazrat Mohammed (PBUH) on the Internet. The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) banned access to Facebook, YouTube and more than 450 links, including restricted access to Wikipedia in view of what it called "growing sacrilegious content".
