Lahore High Court Orders Ban On Hate Spreading Websites


http://thegadgets.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/jfacebook_523415a.jpgLAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Monday ordered the ministry of information technology to block access to all websites spreading religious hatred.


Justice Azmat Saeed, however, made it clear that no search engine, including Google, would be blocked. The court also directed the ministry to submit a compliance report in this regard by October 6.


The court issued the order after hearing a petition seeking a permanent ban on the American social networking website Facebook for allegedly hosting a competition featuring blasphemous caricatures.


Muhammad & Ahmad, a public interest litigation firm, filed the petition on behalf of Advocate Muhammad Azhar Siddique.
